It’s Prayer Time In America! September 17, 2020

12994-Southwide-2020-SLIDE_ST_v2_TITLE-768x380

Last night I preached in a tent meeting on “It’s Prayer Time In America.” Yes, these are turbulent times, political times, chaotic times, dark times – but, for the people of God, it is prayer time! If ever there was a nation and a generation that needed to seek the Lord it is ours…and it is now. 

I am especially excited about the 2020 Southwide Baptist Fellowship. This gathering is simply a time for preachers to hear preaching, encourage one another, and pray together. (View the full schedule of speakers now.) The theme this year is “And When They Had Prayed” from Acts 4:31. Like the early church, the situation today is critical but God is able. Throughout history when His people pray they see Him work.

Would you join us? On Monday – Wednesday, October 12 -14 we will meet at the Gospel Light Baptist Church in Walkertown, NC. Every day there will be special prayer meetings and in each session we will spend time praying together for the spiritual awakening that only God can send. 

  1. Please register at southwidebaptist.org. In addition to a special resource bag, everyone who registers in advance will receive a voucher when you arrive that will allow you to get a copy of my hardback book Revival Praying and the new Companion Bible Study Guide for $5. We hope this will be a tool that will encourage you and those you are leading in prayer.
  2. Join us in praying expectantly for the meeting next month. Ask the Lord to meet with us and set something in motion for His own glory in each of our lives and churches.
  3. Encourage others to come with you. Many pastors, evangelists, missionaries, and Christian workers attend each year, but the meetings are open to everyone and I believe it will be a refreshing three days for all who come.
  4. Plan to be there for the opening meeting on Monday night, October 12 at 7 pm and stay through the closing meeting on Wednesday night, October 14.

Pastor Frank Shumate, Co-Pastor Matt Morrison, and the kind folks at Gospel Light are working hard to prepare for the meeting and will be gracious hosts. Some meals will be provided and helpful resources will be available in the exhibit hall. This will be a refreshing time!

This year’s moderator, Pastor Kevan Bartlett, and I want to extend to you a personal invitation. We hope to see you in Walkertown next month!

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
