May 27 - 29, 2021 ...... Vineyard Prayer Summit.
This year the Prayer Summit online will be hosted online via Zoom. More people from across Vineyard Canada will now have the ability to gather together and participate in this time of corporate prayer and worship.
At the heart of the Prayer Summit is desire to respond to the invitation of the Lord to enter into His presence, to be with Him, to cultivate a deep life with Him, and to respond together to the further invitations of His leading.
This year, each of our 4 sessions will be led by prayer and worship teams from different regions across the nation allowing us an increased experience of corporately seeking and responding to the Lord. We will also be harnessing the advantages of technology, using Zoom breakout rooms to facilitate interactive times of Spirit-led prayer with one another.
We invite you to join us as we set aside this sacred space to gather together to devote ourselves to prayer, worship, seeking the Lord and responding to His leading. Colossians 4:2 (NRSV) "Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving." The Prayer Summit is free this year as we are fully online. All Zoom links will be emailed the morning of the events, so please register using the link below.
ENCOUNTERING GOD in the Moment
This week, as we seek to encounter God in the here and now …… LOOK for GOD in CREATION.
God is all around us. As we intentionally look for God, we will begin to see Him in all of creation! The beauty and vastness of the skies, a smile, a precocious child, a beautiful sunset or tumultuous sky. Ravens playing, growing plants, the coming of spring. An inspired piece of art, a beautiful dance, moving music, mouth-watering food, artistic food presentation. A complex work of engineering genius.
All can point us to Creator God!! He is without boundaries or limitations. And God speaks profoundly through His creation. But again, we must open our eyes to notice, and pause in the moment to say “Thank-you God! You are so amazing! I worship You!” As we practice noticing and praising God in the moment, we will see God more and more. Our eyes will open to notice God, and to experience His felt Presence. And with every word of praise we offer, there is an encounter. Do this with your children, and encounter God together in nature.
This week, intentionally look for God in all of creation. And if you fall into bed at the end of the day and realize that you forgot….. get up, and take a moment to gaze at the night sky, to stand over your sleeping child in awe, or to examine the miracle of your hand with its fine movements, many sensors, strength and flexibility. Then WORSHIP the mighty Creator. You WILL encounter Him as You delight in His creation and offer your gratitude and praise.
