Crazy about God and the life He has given me!

Praying for Walls to come Down!

I have to be honest. One of my favorite stories in the bible is the story of Joshua and the battle of Jericho.  Joshua is now the new leader of the Hebrew nation and he is not to excited about the job.  But he has an amazing encounter with God and he is given the understanding that God is with him where ever he goes. Joshua 1:9.  This is one of my favorite verses and has encouraged me in how I sign my letters, “Be Bold.” Which because people are funny like to think that it says, “Be Bald.” But I love it when the people of Isreal are told to walk around the town of Jericho sing and shout until the walls come down.

Joshua 6:3–5 (NLT)

You and your fighting men should march around the town once a day for six days. Seven priests will walk ahead of the Ark, each carrying a ram’s horn. On the seventh day you are to march around the town seven times, with the priests blowing the horns. When you hear the priests give one long blast on the rams’ horns, have all the people shout as loud as they can. Then the walls of the town will collapse, and the people can charge straight into the town.”

 Well this week after I had positioned the trailer at the school where we meet I really felt God leading me to walk around the school and pray.  So that is what I did.  I walked around Aurora Frontier seven times. The whole time I prayed for “Walls to come Down.”  Walls that are keeping families from being a part of a church.  Walls that are keeping people in addiction. Walls that are keeping men from leading their homes.  Wall that are keeping men and boys locked into porn.  Walls that are keeping women believing that they are not the masterpieces that God created them to be, and Walls that are keeping people from saying Yes to Jesus in their life.  It was one of the most awesome things that I have been able to do since we launched Elevation.  I beleive that come Easter we are going to see God do some amazing things and that we are going to see some walls come tumbling down.
Who are you praying for today?
