About three in the morning as we were continuing instant in prayer, the power of God came mightily upon us, insomuch that many cried out for exceeding joy and many fell to the ground. As soon as we were recovered a little from that awe and amazement at the presence of his majesty we broke out with one voice, “We praise thee O God; we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.” (JOHN WESLEY)
Why do we not now experience such occurrences regularly or even at all? Just asking…
I have been in prayer for months about these matters. To say we live in uncertain and turbulent times would be as blatantly obvious as Jeremiah saying there are Babylonians at the doorsteps. My purpose is, therefore, not to restate the obvious and further frighten the faithful. Instead, at this moment, I want to whisper a reminder of something I believe most of us in Charlotte Awake heard years ago as we were praying.
Charlotte Awake was born in the early 2000s from a prayer burden given to its founders— people like Mary Lance and Bob Sisk—and many of you reading this letter. Forgive me for not mentioning you all by name, but permit me to acknowledge a heartfelt debt of gratitude for your years of faithful intercession for God’s kingdom and our city. I do not have everyone’s addresses or emails, so please forward this letter to anyone you feel needs to read it.
Some of you will recognize that the Charlotte Awake website has undergone a complete overhaul designed to simplify our message and to point you quickly in the right direction. The role of websites has changed over the years because people rely more on their smartphones for information.
