The Revolution- Healing the Land- His blood cleanses all unrighteousness at the root of evil! The Lord gives us, His Beloved, the invitation to partner with Him in healing the land!
Healing the land is made possible as the people of God are healed. Believers who are healed and delivered become a catalyst to bring healing to their church. The heart of the city is the church, which then becomes a catalyst to heal the land. Preparation to serve as a minister of intercession and healing is likened to the preparation for flight take off. There is an order that scripture states we must follow. When we honor the Lord by coming through His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise, repentance, and forgiveness, it is then we can enter the Holy Place of worship and serve in intercession. When we partner with the Holy Spirit to pray what is on the heart of God, it is those prayers that are effective, powerful, and availing much for the kingdom.
I have written three books that lay out the process we go through to be a vessel of transformation. "Where is God on Tuesday" -teaching and testimony of the process of personal transformation through deliverance and healing. "He Cares for Me" - Teaching and training biblical principles to lay leaders to minister deliverance and healing to the body of Christ. "He is Looking for a Donkey...to ride into your city" - Teaching and testimony of how the Lord uses ordinary people who are on the journey of transformation to bring healing to the land!
The Tower of Prayer meets in CCF Ministries of Haverhill (Community Christian Fellowship) 358 Washington Street Haverhill, MA. Parking located the rear of the building and enter through the handicap ramp entrance on Shepherd Street. We gather from 6:30 to 8:00 pm every Sunday (with a few exceptions). There are three steps we take as we enter to serve as an intercessor partnering with the Father's heart.
1. As we enter the building we give thanks for the blood of the Lamb and the power of the cross. We dedicate ourselves as a living sacrifice to serve Him in intercession for the healing of the land.
2. The 2nd step is to take a few moments for the Holy Spirit to search our own heart. Cleansing us from anything that would hinder our time of worship and intercession. To serve in intercession requires clean hands and a pure heart.
3. The 3rd step as we enter the sanctuary, the Holy Place of worship and intercession. We are hidden in Christ and His Righteousness, we are cleansed and covered, ready to worship the Lord and serve in intercession.
As we worship, we wait patiently- those who wait upon the Lord will mount up on wings as eagles. He will take us to the place of intercession. As we rest in our position as sons and daughters, seated with Him in heavenly places, we trust the Holy Spirit will move us to pray His heart with His Word for cities, states, and nations. Petition is praying what we know, intersession is praying what God knows. Please note we are not here to pray our personal opinions about politics, the sins of our culture, or call out areas in the church. We do not talk to God about the sins of our culture; we address the culture by decreeing and declaring to the culture what God says. We don’t pray problems, we pray the promises of God in faith that moves mountains. We believe as scripture states we are the army of the Lord so we take a militant stand when praying with boldness, confidence and Holy Spirit power.
We are a gathering of believers from different churches who choose to walk in oneness and unity.
We agree with The Moravian Motto.
In essentials, unity: Christ is the one big essential. The reality of God’s love offered in Christ is what our life of faith is all about. We all don’t understand or experience Christ in precisely the same way, but it doesn’t matter. Our faith in Christ and our commitment to live as his followers is what matters. Christ is the ground and source of our unity.
In non-essentials, liberty: The list of non-essentials is as big and wide as the heart of liberty. Here we go beyond mere tolerance to acceptance of diversity. We need to be able to say that it is not only okay to have variety of worship forms, musical selections, clergy styles, program offerings and service opportunities; it is good and healthy for the life of the church. Tolerance is too easy; acceptance is our real challenge.
In all things, love:Love affirms our unity rather than our divisions. Love has the power to make of our differences no difference. We all know we have plenty of differences. We could spend a lot of time identifying and fighting with one another. But “In all things love” means the love that has the power to overcome our differences by refocusing our concern on all that we have in common. We believe we all have much more in common than we will ever have in difference. Love not only brings us together in God’s family but keeps us together as a community of faith.
In this corporate prayer gathering, we are here to lift up our voice like a trumpet. The trumpet-like voice in the Book of Revelation is a voice that commands our attention, the voice of authority, It’s the voice of our teacher, Christ the Lord, the “first and the last, the one who ever lives to make intercession.” It is time to stand up, take notice, “Yes Sir!” speak Lord through Your servant, and I will lift up my voice like a trumpet. Isaiah 40:9 O Zion, you who bring good tidings, Get up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, You who bring good tidings, Lift up your voice with strength, Lift it up, be not afraid; Say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”
Isaiah 52:8 Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, with their voices they shall sing together; For they shall see eye to eye when the Lord brings back Zion.
Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet,
Revelation 4:1 After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things."
We are praying for the Lord the send His anointed intercessors to serve in the Tower of Prayer. Numbers 11:16-17 16 The Lord said to Moses: “Bring me seventy of Israel’s elders who are known to you as leaders and officials among the people. Have them come to the tent of meeting, that they may stand there with you. 17 I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take some of the power of the Spirit that is on you and put it on them. They will share the burden of the people with you so that you will not have to carry it alone.
The following resources will help to better understand the transformation prayer model
Informed intercession: We are here to pray the promises of God with the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit. We are not speaking to God about the culture we are speaking to the culture about God. We rule over the defilement of man and of the land by coming in faith decreeing and declaring the will of God over man and the land.
A City Full of Churches-by Samuel Stevens
A city full of churches, Great preachers, lettered men, Grand music, choirs and organs; If these all fail, what then? Good workers, eager, earnest, Who labour hour by hour: But where, oh where, my brothers! Is God's Almighty power?
Refinement: Education! They want the very best. Their plans and schemes are perfect, They give themselves no rest; They get the best of talent, They try their uttermost, But what they need, my brother, Is God the Holy Ghost! We may spend time and money And preach from wisdom's lore,
But education only Will keep God's people poor. God wants not worldly wisdom. He seeks no smiles to win; But what is needed, brother, Is that we deal with sin! It is the Holy Spirit, That quickeneth the soul. God will not take man-worship, Nor bow to man's control. No human innovation, No skill, or worldly art, Can give a true repentance, Or break the sinner's heart!
We may have human wisdom, Grand singing, great success; There may be fine equipment, But these things do not bless. God wants a pure, clean vessel, Anointed lips and true, A man filled with the Spirit, To speak His message through. Great God, revive us truly! And keep us every day; That men may all acknowledge We live just as we pray. The Lord's hand is not shortened, He still delights to bless; If we depart from evil And all our sins confess.
