I know a lot of you pray. It is a big part of your life to pray. When you see the darkness we live in, you don’t panic, you pray. You have learned that the most powerful form of warfare is prayer. You have become Prayer Warriors. I have a burden to build a Prayer Chapel on the internet. It will be a special place for the saints to go to pray, be inspired and to learn. It will be a place where young believers can go to learn to be Prayer Warriors. What a prospect! A School of Prayer Warriors!
In Elisha’s days the school of the prophets got too small. Elisha led them in building a new structure(2 Kings 6:1-7). Allow me to take just a few words for our purpose: “Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell.”
How would you envision such a Chapel? In Europe and even here in Hot Springs, I have visited some beautiful Chapels, built at great expense to express confidence in prayer and encouragement to the burdened heart to come alone in the Presence of Jesus Christ. I have fond and blessed memories of those chapels. But I have a greater vision. It is a place where daily many thousands are gathering around the Throne of Grace in worshipful prayer, carrying out the business of King Jesus in His Kingdom.
Now back to “every man a beam”. What is your beam? What could you provide? What kind of building materials do you have? Let me probe your spirit. What are your favorite passages of Scripture? I mean the ones where you have often found the supernatural answers you needed, or the courage to keep on praying. I would like to know the twelve passages which have encouraged you most. You might be amazed how they could help others prevail in prayer! Again,what about great quotes from the powerful prayer warriors of the past like George Mueller, Charles Spurgeon, E.M. Bounds or Edward Payson, just to name a few. They had a way of moving heaven, and moving men’s hearts to trust heaven! Again, what is the greatest sermon you ever heard on prayer? It still inspires you today, and that is why you remember it. It would probably inspire other. Also there is so much written material which can inspire us to pray. Personal testimonies can also be a great motivation to pray! Well, I hope you get the message. That is what I mean by your beam.
How do we do it? First, the Holy Spirit is the only One who has the architectural skill and wisdo to do it. This is the great part. He lives in each of us, and He can show us our beam and show us where to put it. In a practical way, you simply send to me your material and I will by His grace build an internet Prayer Room or Chapel where people can go 24/7 to be blessed, inspired and become a blessing to many.
What do you think? I will need help as the material grows. Pray over this little appeal and contact me with a PM on Facebook, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are building a new site on the internet for the Chapel!
