Group 5 – Light

white space

This is a horrifying verse to me.  “If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”

There is dark land, dark time, dark people, and many other flavors of darkness, but the remedy for all of them is light from God.

We want the light of God to shine in our inner being, and to facilitate that, we are crafting prayers about the environmental light, to set the stage for an infinitely variegated light show at the event.

Greetings, Group 5.

I have assigned you to one of the most sophisticated, challenging strike forces.  God is light.  Our spirit is light.  God’s Word is light.  And the enemy has myriad light extinguishers to use.

It is important that you war from design, not duty.  And your design is best found by you, not me.  You can do that by allowing the Holy Spirit to draw you in to the right aspect of light.

Below are a couple of hundred verses about light.  Your job for this first round is to simply read through it and find what sparkles for you.  It may be two verses or it may be 20.  Just find out where the fire is at this time in your life.

Part of the power of a prayer team is the different design and the different journey of the participants.

It is my opinion that one of the most powerful tools for neutralizing the gifts of God to man is distrust.  The devil works in myriad ways to cause offenses between us and God so that we see Him as less than He really is.  Each of us has our own judgments, many of which are not consciously acknowledged, but they are judgments nonetheless and cause us to distrust the gifts of God.

Let’s spend a couple of weeks or so asking God to shine His light on each offense that someone in attendance has, whether they know about it or not, and to reconcile us at a deeper level to the true essence and heart of The Almighty.

Spend some time looking at your own journey, savoring the ways and times that God revealed to you an offense you did not know about, and resolved the judgment, so you could receive more from Him.

Turn each of these authority points from your journey into intercession for those coming.

Reconciliation is an ongoing process for all of us.  OBVIOUSLY, the event in Shelby is designed to produce a big lurch forward, reconciling us to time and to various fractals.

But there can be specific reconciliations that take place before that, which empower people to receive more that day, rather than less.

Strategy #3

The human spirit is made of the light of God.  And that light divides into the seven colors of the rainbow.

I am currently doing a tune-up with my spirit, with the help of a teammate, refining and enhancing each portion of the spirit, bringing their color to optimal intensity.

Pray into that tune-up process for me, please.  The last few years have been varied and challenging, and I am overdue for separating out from some junk and accessing new flavors of the light of God.

During the day, the carousel of my spirit will rotate during the different sessions so that different colors will be shining out, at different times.

By contrast, the colors of God’s wisdom are infinite – Ephesians 3:10.

And the needs of people are infinitely unique.  Pray that the light of God’s wisdom would shine uniquely into each person’s spirit and soul, so as to specifically address the pools of darkness that need light.
