Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper. – Jer 29:7

Scriptures and context

I’ve been exploring these concepts for many years but the people in the group haven’t been. So how do you bring them up to speed in a few hours a week?

Initially I was handing out printed paper but that seemed wasteful and it won’t scale up when many more people come. More people means more printing and paper gets grubby when used, so we would have to print new ones every two weeks again.

Three weeks ago I felt led by the Holy Spirit to collect the key scriptures together and laminate the double sided pages. This worked well. I encouraged people to take them home to pray them during the week. 3 of them disappeared that night.

Then two weeks ago I felt led by the Holy Spirit to print out A1 size paper and put the key verses on the walls so that we can read them as we are praying for one another. This has worked EXTREMELY well. One person said “it makes a vast difference” as he gazed at the scriptiures… presumably it was sinking in. And it scales up… no matter how many people are in the room the same 4 A1 pages of scripture is sufficient.

Those A1 pages will some day be video projector images of things or places to pray for and suggested scriptures to declare.

Amen!
