A week ago in our Team Bethany Chapel I laid out the basics of our Bethany Prayer Room vision. The Prayer Room is a place where we can corporately grow in a lifestyle of intimacy with and love for God. It is out of this that all other service flows; seeing God’s purposes established on the earth, “living with eternity’s values in view,” preparing God’s people for Jesus return, and sending workers into God’s harvest field.
On Monday I met with the team serving the Bethany Prayer Room ministry. They put together first steps for raising up “watchmen” who join together for 24/7 worship and prayer.
Dave Horsman and the team presented six different opportunities for students to get involved-worship set leader, audio helper, prayer leader, video tech, etc. You, too, can join in. This is open to anyone who desires to volunteer and engage in prayer, worship, and intercession. We have really wanted to keep it easy for you to get involved.
What does this mean to post watchmen on our walls? This is an invitation for you to join The Bethany Prayer Room on campus and wherever you are in the world to provide a 24/7 base of watches – committing to take a 1-2 hour watch (or as many as you’d like) anytime day or night, every week.
Here is how you can get involved in establishing the “Watchmen on the Wall” framework:
1. Commit to specific times when you will come before the Lord (primarily within the Bethany Prayer Room, but not exclusively).
2. Establish and/or join a gathering of believers for prayer and intercession throughout the Bethany world, on campus, and/or in the Bethany Prayer Room.
To get involved in a Prayer Watch, please email our prayer team at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will post your Prayer Watch. – Dan Brokke
“I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.” – Isaiah 62:6-7
