Last month Mike Bollinger and Angela Kemm held a ‘prophetic masterclass’ for individuals identified by some of our church leaders as people who had an emerging prophetic gifting. They had a very encouraging day, which you can read about on the website
, and were particularly struck by the softness of the participants’ hearts, their willingness to learn and their openness to being shaped by God.
As a family of churches we are committed to listening carefully to what God is saying to us, in the big, bold words and in the quiet places. That is one reason we’re so excited about the COURAGE conference - God clearly spoke to Mike and others about the theme and the location, so we are expecting great things from him.
But prayer also shapes us, as we listen to God and learn more about him and his ways, he changes our hearts to become more like him, and enable us to pray the kinds of prayers he loves to answer.
