At the start of this year a dear friend of ours shared a clear word that she felt God wanted to encourage us with… ‘onwards and upwards’!
There were several applications to this word but she suggested we go to a high place in Munich and pray for the city and seek God for his heart for the communities spread out below us. There is something amazing about gaining a little bit of a higher perspective for the place where you spend most of your daily routine. I guess you get out away from the distractions and see that you are part of something bigger, and begin to feel God’s heart for your community. And so with our wonderful friends Andi & Annika we climbed to the top of Olympia Berg in the Bavarian spring sunshine, and sought God for Munich.
Following our first high altitude prayer we have selected several other highspots in the city and will continue to pray from these places over the coming months. Please do join us in praying for this great city. There are so many people here who are spiritually hungry, yet seem lost and without direction or purpose. We know that it is only through prayer that people truly turn to God, and that prayer is a critical ingredient in the transformation of cities, nations and continents.
I recently read that the wave of prayer that preceded the Indonesian revival of 1999 was mainly conducted on top of office blocks because they were forbidden from constructing church buildings. Thousands of Christians changing their nation by praying on their knees (high above the people below them!) How amazing it would be to see the hand of God moving all over Munich and beyond, changing lives and communities, because there are people joining together in prayer!
The rusty hinge of human history turns out to be the bended knee.pete greig, dirty glory
