Following the Renewing a Vision vote at Annual Sessions, John Powell suggested as the first step in living into our vision, taking three months to pray at the same time for 15 minutes. He suggested Sunday morning. “What can God do through our prayers?” John asked. Pastors and congregations are invited to consider this idea.
Probably few congregations have taken this up yet. It takes time to work at the complications. We have schedules. We have full agendas. We have questions about how we could possibly pray for 15 minutes. Still, few things worth doing come without effort. What will it take for your congregation to designate time to pray before we begin living into Renewing a Vision? I wonder what we might hear if part of our prayer was a request for the spirit to lead us.
