What if there was a place... or a city... or a church... or even a cross within a church... that was so drenched in the presence and power of God that people would come just to experience their chains being broken, bodies being cleansed, and lives being set free?
You are hereby invited to participate with The Sanctuary Church in seeking God for more. More of what we are already experiencing in our midst. The Celtic people called it a “thin space” between heaven and earth. Others call it a window from heaven being opened or a place where God’s Shekinah Glory settles. Whatever it is and however it is happening, the Cross in our sanctuary seems to be a place where those embers are turning into a fire. Freedom is calling and we are answering, “Here we are Lord, use us.”
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Lord, we ask that you would share with us your vision to see captives of addiction set free. Give us a divine imagination and a courage to chase radical and revolutionary recovery revival.
Open our eyes to what you want in the chemical revival placed on our hearts.
In the name of Jesus, please hear our prayer.
Now, in your own words, ask for vision as to what God is asking of us in this revival.
The Lord’s Prayer - For Recovery and Revival
Your sons and daughters...our brothers and sisters...are addicted
It feels hopeless at times
But we know you are above any obstacle because your name is hallowed and above every other name
This brings us hope
May your Kingdom of freedom come to those who have come to the
end of their rope
May your will be done for those who feel undone
For those who feel as though heaven is fleeting and far away
May it be as near as the soil is to the soul of their feet
Give us what we need to help our brothers and sisters on their journey
Give them what they need to take the next right step
As we all walk together...let forgiveness lead the way
Deliver us all from darkness
Drive us all towards the light
This is your story
Only your power can do this
You deserve the glory
God our Father,
We submit to you that there is only so much we can do in our humanity
And in our humanity, tonight we must rest
Please bring rest to those who are restless in addiction
Give them a peace as expansive as the starry sky we all sleep beneath
We pray that they can rest in you and that they may awake to a new day in recovery with you.
As we spend this time seeking The Lord for Recovery Revival, let's be reminded and encouraged by the testimonies of what He has already done in the lives of those in our midst.
Thank you for partnering with us in prayer as we contend for what God has called us to. We know that we cannot do this on our own, and your heart and investment are invaluable to us. We're excited to see lives transformed and a city set free as we learn to come alongside the heart and mission of The Father!
