We have entered a season where the visions of former seasons will see further fulfillment and we must be prepared to embrace them with joy. God himself tells us:
And so I am sure that God, who began this good work in you, will carry it on until it is finished on the Day of Christ Jesus.
In a former season while serving as a prayer pastor, God gave me and my team a vision for a 24/7 prayer room.
There was much prayer before we approached the leadership and for a time they had a room dedicated to prayer in our church. We saw the vision come to pass in part and so as I left the church I thought that was all there would be to that promise so I let it go. Never thinking about it again.
As the CJM office search began having a pray room for clients was a must. Then sitting in the prayer room alone one day, the small still voice of God began stirring in my heart about allowing the vision to expand. The next board meeting I approached my board they were more than on board with the idea, they were shocked when I didn’t see having a House of Prayer open to the public was a natural extension for CJM.
For several months CJM wrestled with this new vision. At the start of this month our board dedicated the Shalom Oregon House of Prayer. Our mission to invite, embrace and release the peace of God over the people of God in Oregon and beyond. I marveled as maps which I had created from yet another former season were hung for the first time in years. I have seen an expansion of the vision still more, marveling as leaders from three different Houses of Prayer from around Oregon, part of the We Cry out team in advance of National Day of Prayer May 7th, sat together in our classroom praying and sharing their hearts!
I remember the struggles of those former seasons I rejoice in how God is still working to establish this 24/7 prayer vision so long ago. I know it is still incomplete for we are not 24/7 but if God himself can spark this old vision, He who began a good work will bring it to the completed work at the appropriate time!
