God dropped an idea in our midst.
An idea tied to something He wanted to do. Something a bit unusual. Something good.
"An unexpected great good
through an unlikely people."
He took us to the book of Ezekiel, landed in chapter one & spoke of creating am army from a bunch of dry bones. From a bunch of long-time battle no-shows. The last place anyone would expect anything phenomenal from.
"So I prophesied as he commanded, & breath entered them; they came to life & stood up -a vast army."
God has always had a thing for doing the unexpected
through the unlikely.
God was giving us an invitation to call out those of us who are regularly no-shows when it comes to praying into the big, hard, hairy issues that fill news headlines, & it came with a promise to endow them with power to affect real change in those places they once barely gave a nod to.
Our response was,
"We dare you".
And JUST PRAYER was launched.
