Strategic Exposure to the Light
Some congregations are not called to be big. They are called to be a strategic Ekklesia, governing in prayer. They are more like special forces than the broader army. You have to have the broad – the army. You also have to have the special forces. So, some are not going for size, but strength. The intensity of these groups of believers will be such that they will never be a mega-church. They will, however, find the points of spiritual conflict within the nation and show them how to pray to pave the way for others to come in to reap the harvest there.
“Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.” (Ephesians 5:11-13; NASB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Thank the Lord for churches that know their assignment and stay small and tight to preserve the unity God has given them as an Ekklesia for the nation.
Intercede for these groups that they would call the lost to God’s precious throne of grace.
Declare that they shall cry “Mercy” over situations requiring God to intervene.
Say they shall pull the curtains back on personal and national darkness and introduce the light!
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, we thank you for these small, strategic groups of Believers You are raising up across the nation. They are like special forces prayer strike teams. We pray that these strategic groups come to the throne of grace. You did not call it the throne of judgement. You called it the throne of grace and mercy and You said there was grace to help in time of need. We say that these groups would bring to the throne of grace those in their realms of influence who desperately need You. They will cry before You, “Mercy!” Over situations that require Your intervention, they will come to that throne and cry, “Mercy!” You are going to show, through the praying Church, Jesus, Your manifold wisdom and the lost will be saved and the nation will be saved! Amen.
We decree that strategic groups of the Ekklesia will expose works of darkness. They will bring all into the light, and bring many to the throne of grace that God may extend His mercy and salvation to them!
