#365Watch 2022

Welcome to #365Watch2022! We enter and celebrate our 10th year of continuous prayer at ESCC.  From a movement of prayer to a prayer movement!

‘It’s not the size of your fire. It’s the number of fires you help start.’

Our key scripture for 2022 is Isaiah 61 :1 – 11 (Msg)
1 The Spirit of God, the Master, is on me because God anointed me. He sent me to preach good news to the poor, heal the heartbroken, Announce freedom to all captives, pardon all prisoners. 2 God sent me to announce the year of his grace – a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies – and to comfort all who mourn, 3 To care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion, give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes, Messages of joy instead of news of doom, a praising heart instead of a languid spirit. Rename them “Oaks of Righteousness” planted by God to display his glory.  4 They’ll rebuild the old ruins, raise a new city out of the wreckage. They’ll start over on the ruined cities, take the rubble left behind and make it new. 5 You’ll hire outsiders to herd your flocks and foreigners to work your fields, 6 But you’ll have the title “Priests of God,” honored as ministers of our God. You’ll feast on the bounty of nations, you’ll bask in their glory. 7 Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, Your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever. 8 “Because I, God, love fair dealing and hate thievery and crime, I’ll pay your wages on time and in full, and establish my eternal covenant with you. 9 Your descendants will become well-known all over. Your children in foreign countries Will be recognized at once as the people I have blessed.”  10 I will sing for joy in God, explode in praise from deep in my soul! He dressed me up in a suit of salvation, he outfitted me in a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom who puts on a tuxedo and a bride a jeweled tiara. 11 For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, So the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations.

Beautiful & inspirational prayer guidelines will be available each quarter, with a monthly focus  – as we use specific verses from Isaiah 61. Prayer movements always precede people movements – this is  a move of God!

While our specific focus may change, our vision remains the same with the mandate of Matthew 28:19-20  weaving its way through everything we do:
‘Therefore, GO & make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father & the Son & the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you…’
ESCC – our vision is clear: Being disciples who are making disciples that make disciples!

At least… 20 minutes connecting with God &  20 minutes connecting with someone each day.

There is a large 3D prophetic visual in the entrance foyer of ESCC. (Streams entrance) This will capture what it looks like to participate in a ‘movement of prayer.’ You will be able to collect your prayer guidelines here as well as be part of this call of God to Disciple the nations.

History belongs to the intercessors – those who believe & pray the future into being.’ Walter Wink

Come along anytime during Streams hours ( Mon – Fri 7:30pm to 3:30pm or Sunday mornings) to add your prayers to the prophetic mountain of prayer as we flood our city and beyond.

’ The Spirit of God , the Master, is on me because God anointed me. He sent me’ (Isaiah 61)

It’s never by chance that we live in a particular city or community. Love God, love people and transform our community. Our city is one of the most beautiful in the world, with thousands of churches, and yet ranked within the top 10 most dangerous cities. The Lord gives us clear direction in Isaiah 61. It takes a prayer movement to  activate &  action to do this!
