“What is this Prayer~Fast~Worship?” she asked blocking my way out of the row of chairs. A stack of children’s coats in my arms sliding out of my grasp.
How to describe it…this ever changing thing we call PFW.
The bare minimum is to pray, fast and worship while you are there with us….with Him. But there is just so much more …
We just wanted a place to go..
Where we could play music and worship. So we needed an other place to go.
A place where we could pray.
We could gather on Saturday…so the overflow of filling this spiritual warehouse will be felt the following morning.
I remember the first one… someone came up to me while the guitars were tuning behind me…and advised me to tell everyone what to do and what to expect…I smiled, politely.
I knew it wasn’t about telling them what to do… but just to show them…to let His Presence fill this place and they would have to respond.
It’s funny because it is my nature to teach…to explain things…to sell them to people. But I heard clearly “to lead…just lead. Let it all be Mine.”
So how do I explain this other place….this Prayer~Fast~Worship.
How do I explain how we got here…let alone how it changes… (click on bolded links to read more on each)
Well the first week He told us “it was the first note of a song…and to Fill His house with carols”
The second week He explained the concept of Intimacy…how we receive from Him upon asking …and in return we worship and praise Him…and ask “more”..and the cycle is intimacy.
We have learned why the fasting…. your flesh is weaker…less struggling against your spirit which wants relationship and intimacy with Him.
I have watched as He has led me to understand the difference between a worship leader and a worship usher.
I saw weeks where we felt Him strong…and weeks where it was like pushing mud to get through.
When I am walking with a Royal mindset I start to see that nothing is a coincidence but all part of a Divine Itinerary.
And now…when they called me to see if I would continue this PFW thing…. there was no hesitation from me.
One major thing…and I haven’t really gone into it here…because I hate to give any credit to anyone but Him… but I have watched curiously how He exposes the other sides plans at our PFW. Everyone has seen or felt the opposition. We have seen it in human form twice…and well….umm…we just know it exists. Every single time it is exposed. Either way it’s a curious thing. I don’t want to freak you out…so that is all I can say, for now.
So what is PFW?
It’s a place where it doesn’t matter if the mics work or anyone “amen’s” your prayers…
It’s a place where you can sing like a bean in a tin can…as long as it is for Him.
It is a place where the music and prayers are geared towards Him…not towards each other.
It is about Who is there…and not about the numbers of who are not there.
~But to sum it up… it is about being in a Throne room…and there:
What would you say?
What would you sing?
What would you feel?
What would you do?
It’s about Receiving all that He has for you…Thanking Him for all He has done for you….and asking for more….(rinse and repeat).
Now saturated in His Presence...smelling of Him…enter into your Divine Itinerary.
(lol…and now you understand why I said it is my personality to sell things~T)
