What are you fighting for?

People will often fight for a cause that they think is greater than them.

Christian, there is a cause bigger than you, its not only bigger than you, it is also about you.

It is time to come up higher, it's time for our prayer points to be bigger than our individual needs.

Jesus is asking you today, do you care about My bride?

This is a follow on to my last post. I ask you the question that Jesus would like to ask you today, what will your contribution be in this battle to get The Lord's bride ready for Him?

That getting ready is also individual and corporate.

Guys, it's time to clean up our act. It is time to be your brother's keeper - fight for a cause that is greater than you and a cause that includes you.

Have you come to Jesus to be a spectator or have you come to be counted?

God has hidden His treasure in us earthen vessels - in His children. Every Christian has a great treasure within them, every Christian is a superstar, none is a celebrity. We may have leaders but we do not have mega stars among us. Each of us is carrying something of tremendous value on the inside of us as long as the Holy Spirit is within us.

Jesus has sent me to ask you today, if you will fight for His bride, His church.

We do not fight as men fight for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty to the pulling down of strongholds. I pray that you will catch the fire of God and the rain of revival will fall on you. And that as people cross your path you will set them on fire for Jesus.

The good news in this battle is we already know the outcome - the war has been won but the battle will be fought, and each warrior will determine for themselves if they choose to be swept away in the battle or if they will stand with the winning side.

Arise, shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the people, but the Lord arises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to the light and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

It is at the time of great darkness that the light shines brighter and brighter. The Bible says that the light shines out of the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not.

Where can you start from you might ask, start from prayer and start from a place of repentance. Start making intercession for the body of Christ. Start interceding for yourself.

This is the call.

We meet on our prayer line at 8.30PM GMT on Thursdays. We have UK, US, Norway, Canada dial in numbers as well as other countries (Nigeria we do not have a dial in for at the moment). If you would like to join us as we make intercession for the body of Christ on Thursdays and as the Spirit of God leads us to pray The Father's will, send me a message with your email address, country and time zone; so that we can add your email to our invite list & include dial in details for your location. We would like to invite those of you that have decided to answer His call to say yes, I will stand up and be counted. I am going to place my needs on the shelf for a while and sow this time into the Lord's burden and as I behold Him - I will be transformed.

Some of you may feel led to get your own group of friends - believers together to start the same thing, I encourage you to do so. Some will feel led to gather together in a place to do the same thing - I encourage you to do so.

When you start to make intercession, you can start from praying in the Holy Spirit - in tongues if you don't know what particular point to start from and He will lead you as you should pray in English or your local dialect.

We also try to commit our meetings and our worship in advance to the Lord that we may do all of the Father's will. Whoever will be facilitating the line and worship, we come together in advance before we start to commit to God.

I pray that as you heed the call, the lesser things will no longer consume you and hold you ransom and that your love for each other - the body of Christ will cover a multitude of sins that we may dwell in unity and harmony as the Father intended & go on to fulfill the call of God as each one becomes a champion for the Father & Son's heart.

Thank you and God Bless.
