Mayors all over the Metroplex have officially declared today a day of prayer for the DFW area.

Today from noon to 1pm, find a place to sit, kneel or stand in intercession for the DFW area. The favor of God is evident upon us as the local mayors have called for that time to be set aside for prayer. Let’s pray that the Lord will meet with our area leaders and give them wisdom and revelation. May He bring wise, godly advisors around them. May He miraculously bring an end to the politics, religion and division and bring a unified hunger for His will and for His presence. May COVID-19 dry up and die in the DFW area, and may the Almighty God receive all of the glory and credit. May every person in the Metroplex who has been infected by this sickness be restored 200%, much to the dismay of the specialists, experts, and unbelievers. May all eyes, ears, and hearts turn in awe towards our heavenly Father. Let’s pray and believe together for this impossible mission, in the name of Jesus!

“So on October 2 the wall was finished—just fifty-two days after we had begun. When our enemies and the surrounding nations heard about it, they were frightened and humiliated. They realized this work had been done with the help of our God.” — Nehemiah 6:15-16 NLT

Most people who say they believe in God also believe that God is invested in their endeavors. Rarely will you meet someone who is diligently and with full abandon devoted to seeking and participating in God’s endeavors. When we’re not surrendered to God, we think our will is His will. In His mercy and loving kindness towards us, He often blesses us and provides for us even in this selfish state. But nothing compares to the extreme miraculous grace available when instead of inviting Him, we joyfully embrace His invitation.

The number fifty-two means “testimony of extreme grace”. 5 (grace) x 10 (complete, full) + 2 (testimony). In the miraculous rebuilding of Jerusalem’s wall in just fifty-two days, God displayed what His grace can accomplish through a surrendered people. The wall was a giant billboard of God’s overflowing, excessive favor and power to accomplish the impossible; and all of the surrounding enemies were “frightened and humiliated” by the evident testimony of God’s extreme grace.

What is God building today? In what great endeavor has He invited us to participate? Have we received His vision for an impossible enterprise, an undertaking of such boldness and energy that it will require divine grace times ten? What glory remains unseen because such adventures are rarely pursued? The Spirit of God clearly wants to bring a Great Awakening to DFW. Who will partner with Him in the radical salvation of our cities?

His love is better than life!
