Week 1: Personal Revival
To Listen: CYHM 1: CUL8R
Doesn’t it seem like there should be more to prayer than just our typical “Help me, bless me, protect me, give to me” prayers? Prayer has to be more than just talking to God—because He knows our thoughts, right? It has to be more than just us making our requests known to God—because doesn’t He already know everything that’s going on in our lives? It’s like there’s some secret, some mystery we hope to unlock so we can “get through” to God. If we could just say the right words, maybe we can break the code and get a “yes” to all our requests. But what if prayer was something much bigger than that? What if prayer went beyond us getting what we wanted, and became about how to grow closer to God’s heart instead? What if prayer wasn’t just about changing our present situation, what if it was about changing us?
This year, once again the WVMA (Wabash Valley Ministerial Association )will have the privilege of sponsoring a public prayer event on the National Day of Prayer, Thursday May 2nd from Noon til 1 PM, on the steps of the courthouse in Terre Haute. Marvin Adams and the IHOP (international house of Prayer) team will lead the event with worship based prayer. Mayor Duke Bennett will honor us with a greeting and kicking off the event. We will have several segments of prayer, each lead by scripture and a representative from the highlighted organization lifted up.

We’ve all used words while being a little uncertain of the actual meaning. But when it comes to words like “belief,” “righteousness” and “salvation,” our understanding makes a huge difference in how we live our Christian faith and how we view God. So, we’re going to take a look at these commonly used words and figure out not only what they mean today but what they meant to the writers of the Bible thousands of years ago. And, in doing so, our aim is to let these new definitions teach us more about all God has for us and wants for us. In other words, over the next three weeks we are going to take what may have been lost in translation and recapture and rethink it in a way that could transform us in ways we never imagined.
Jesus is not asking to be an addition to our life; He is asking to be our life.
Sometimes we have to trade what we think we know—about Jesus, about what is best for us, about what we think about others—in order to fully participate with God in what we don’t know.
Join us for this 3 part series leading up to Easter, as we tackle what the Gospel of Mark has to say about the beginning of Jesus’ story, about the message He brought for all people and for all times, and where we fit in the story.
We have have Life Journals available at Connection Point in the Foyer. The Life Journals can be purchased in a variety of colors for $7.00.
We want to encourage you to begin the spiritual discipline of journaling your thoughts on a daily reading of God’s Truth and track your prayers to see how God answers.
Following is a video and a web link that can help you get started. There are also instructions and helps posted in the front of each journal with a daily reading plan taken from Wayne Cordeiro’s personal study.
Is life change really possible? If we’re honest most of us would answer, ‘No.’ That’s because most of us have tried numerous things that promise big changes, but in reality, they often deliver little results. We long for transformation…We desire to MORPH into the one God created us to be, but often we don’t know where to begin.
MORPH can be heard at Morph 5.
Know, there’s good news for us and there is hope! Life change is possible! We were made to grow, to change, and to experience intimacy and adventure… to Morph Spiritually!
