Thirstday prayer-walk

11 days that will transform you life
A pilgrimage on dusty roads  through spectacular landscapes. The sun paints artistic shades on sandstone mountainsides. The wind carries a strange freshness in the air. The Maluti mountains boast their splendour. The African soil under your feet reminds of a journey deep within.
Let your heart and mind find its resting place in God. Read more

My cup runneth over (on a Sunday); but does it last until Thursday …

After setting out on a 10 km prayer-walk, I came to a very (very) steep uphill. Once I got to the summit, I felt a barrenness in my heart. I was praying over the area, but it felt as if there was Someone missing … it was just a small area, but the feeling was intense.

I believe the Holy Spirit was prompting me to sing over that area …


Holy Spi-rit,

You are wel-co-me i-i-in this p-l-a-c-e
Holy Spi-rit,

You are wel-co-me i-i-in this p-l-a-c-e
Holy Spi-rit,

You are wel-co-me i-i-in this p-l-a-c-e
Holy Spi-rit,

You are wel-co-me i-i-in this p-l-a-c-e

Omnipotent Father of mercy and grace

You are wel-co-me i-i-in this p-l-a-c-e

This continued for the next 6 km – almost an hour of singing that proclamation over the area as I walked through it. As I sang that song, I wondered what happens when people go to church on a Sunday, and they get an overflowing joy and indwelling presence of God. On Monday it’s less intense … Tuesday it’s even less and by Wednesday they are half empty.  At last Thursday becomes Thirstday

Shouldn’t we stay in His overflowing presence all week long.
May my lips overflow with praise (
Psalm 119:171a NIV)

Everyone doesn’t experience the fullness of this verse in their Monday to Friday life. BUT we can make a difference. Right where you are … at this moment pray for your neighbourhood. And then pick up the phone and encourage someone … ask the Holy Spirit to show you who …

Father God,

we just come before You on this day

We realise our brothers and sisters are getting weary in this long week and we pray for them now Lord.

Lord, I ask that You will bring to mind those things which You spoke through the pastors and preachers on Sunday.

Lord I pray that You will draw Your people close –

by Your Holy Spirit

And Lord

You are welcome in this area.

We just declare this over our neighbourhoods

… You are wel-co-me i-i-in this p-l-a-c-e …

and Father God please show me now who to encourage this day

I ask this in Jesus’ name

Amen


I feel in my heart it is now time to be still before God …
