James and Abigail Baskett are the Liverpool Catalyst Prayer Champions and they are helping us all to pray for the work across our region. Each month they are meeting with one of our amazing Community Champions to pray with them and to identify how we can best pray for them and their ministry.
The Big PUSH is a dynamic gathering of Christians who know that prayer changes lives and transforms communities. We love spending time worshipping God and seeking Him for revival across our region and nation.
Instead of just seeing what our communities look like now…we dream for a moment and imagine what our community can look like in a perfect world. What needs to change for that to happen? When God spoke the heavens and the earth were created. We need to remember that when we have given our lives to God and we are filled with Holy Spirit, there is power when we speak, prophesy and pray in Jesus’ name.
The Bible says in 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV) “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
It is very helpful to pray in a strategic way and we do this by having particular prayer targets. They can be geographical hot spots for trouble, people eg. gang leaders or community leaders, or other issues the Lord lays on your heart for your area. Praying FOR people and areas of geography is very powerful. When you are walking or driving around your community why not pray releasing God's love and grace over that area.
