His heavens

As part of the 10 Days of Prayer leading up to Global Day of Prayer we are called to gather and pray in the high places of the areas where we live.

Yesterday we journeyed to the Duck Mountains Provincial Park and climbed the lookout tower on Baldy Mountain, the highest point in Manitoba.

We declared the sovereignty of God:

O Zion,
You who bring good tidings,
Get up into the high mountain;
O Jerusalem, You who bring good tidings,
Lift up your voice with strength,
Lift it up, be not afraid;
Say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”

Yes, Manitoba.. behold your God. Canada, behold your God! We prayed for awkening in the hearts and spirits of the people in our region. In one unified voice we cried "Awake. Awake."

The forcast called for rain and thunder storms, and indeed the road to the park was littered with puddles, clouds surrounded us on every side. As we reached our destination the skies opened and sunlight streamed down upon us. We all sensed that God was opening a gateway to the heavens, confirming that He is well pleased with our passion to pray.

Tonight may we gather for Day 5 with a spirit of rejoicing.
