Awakening Weekend:
4 Events … 2 Days … 1 Pursuit

 

     There is something bigger going on.  God is breaking into all of the arenas of life, stirring hearts and drawing young and old to Himself.  At this point, the Lord is “whispering” to the hungry and thirsty ones who have ears to hear, “Wake Up … AWAKEN your heart, your mind, your soul and your spirit to what I am doing!”   

     God is shaking everything that can be shaken, which hinders love.  The first Commandment, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart soul and strength,” is becoming a reality in more and more believers' lives.   Jesus is helping us all to focus on “first things first” because our God loves us so much, He will do whatever it takes to help us get our priorities and our hearts in alignment with His plans and purposes on the earth.  

     In this season, the Lord is orchestrating a vast army of lovesick worshipers who are pursuing Jesus and changing the spiritual atmosphere wherever they go.  From all backgrounds and denominations, the Prayer Movement, the Missions Movement and the Church Planting Movement are coming together like never before in history.  There is a convergence of Kingdom Builders agreeing with God and saying “yes” to serving one another and unifying together as the Body of Christ. 

     As a result, cities, states and nations are being changed because the presence of God will not only come “in a meeting” but the Holy Spirit dwells among us and goes with us in all of our life.  We will experience not only visitation, but habitation in every sphere of our lives. 

     At Awakening Weekend (July 16-17, Charlottesville, VA) we are asking Jesus to WAKE US UP!  We need help from the Holy Spirit to see what our heavenly Father is doing so we can join in with His plans and purposes for our region of the earth.  

     Join us locally in the Charlottesville area and from around the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The Business of Prayer is hosting a 2 Day Event with 4 Meetings and YOU are invited!  Pass the word to a friend and make plans to gather for at least one meeting, but we hope you can make all four sessions!

Awakening Weekend: 
4 Events … 2 Days … 1 Pursuit

For the 97% of us NOT called to be in full time “vocational” ministry, we get the honor and privilege of loving God wherever we go.  Our God is “the God of all of life” and we are to be “presence bringers” in every arena of life.  [Arts / Entertainment, Business, Education, Government, Media and Family]   As forerunners, we are called to build anointed organizations, redeem our industry sectors and reclaim our inheritance in the marketplace!  Learn more about Nehemiah, Joseph and Daniel and how their biblical success models give us a clear roadmap for practical application in our lives today.

A Call to All Lovers of Jesus in the Central Virginia Area 

FRIDAY July 16th 7-10pm

During this time we will worship Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and enter into His rest and enjoy His presence as we love Him because He is worthy to be praised!  As lovers of Jesus, we will encounter our living God who brings us Hope for our lives, builds our Faith (even in troubled times) and most of all, strengthens us by the power of His life-changing Love!

Topics to be touched on will include:  Praying for the harvest, prophetic worship, intimacy, prophetic revelation, fullness of God’s purposes, God’s glory, justice in mercy, generous openhandedness, divine protection and God’s purpose for Israel to exalt Jesus to the nations.

VA HOP Net is a relational network which exists to strengthen the houses of prayer of Virginia in their unique mandate to build day and night prayer. This is accomplished through relational gatherings, resourcing, encouragement, and prayer.   

We are inviting everyone - with a heart to pray - to come and join in four state-wide prayer gatherings ( next prayer gathering in Charlottesville, VA July 17th -- see details below).

We are asking praying churches, houses of prayer, prayer furnaces, praying ministries and home prayer groups to come on out.  With the increase move of the Spirit across this nation we feel it is imperative that we link arms, fast, pray and fellowship with each other. We hope you will come.  FEEL FREE TO INVITE EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

The first two and a half hours we will pray together, and the last two hours or so we will eat together. We will pray for the current needs that are pressing in around us, and we also want to take time to celebrate and pray for the groups represented. 

When are the dates?
Right now we are on our 3rd statewide prayer gathering meeting -- Charlottesville, VA July 17th. (Future dates and locations in other Virginia cities TBA in the coming months.)

Awakening Worship & Healing Service
Spiritual Awakening Impartation for Students & Young Adults (of all ages ) Fanning Revival Flames Across Virginia  
 
SATURDAY July 17th 7 – 10pm

Awake! Arise!
Encountering Jesus in a way which awakens the soul!

Throughout history, college and university campuses in our nation have been an epicenter and a catalyst for spiritual awakening. Since the 1700s, our nation has witnessed multiple moves of the Holy Spirit that have touched and awakened students on college campuses, including Princeton University, Yale University, Asbury College, Wheaton College, and more than a dozen other college campuses. These spiritual awakenings often progressed beyond the campuses and resulted in a great number of souls being added to the kingdom of God. History also attests to a strong correlation between spiritual awakening and missionary movements.

On November 11, 2009 a spiritual awakening began touching the International House of Prayer University students in Kansas City, MO.  They began meeting for hours each day and many people have been set free from addictions, shame, depression, demonic activity, and every sort of emotional pain.  Plus, there has been an increase of physical healings as God is touching and restoring bodies as well. (Read the full story www.IHOP.org or watch (and participate) in the meetings LIVE Wed – Sat evenings online.)

The Holy Spirit is awakening men and women of all ages all across our nation and the nations of the earth at this time.  During these meetings, lost souls are being added to the kingdom of God and many backslidden believers are experiencing God breakthroughs and a renewal in their relationship with Jesus.    . 

VIRGINIA Awakening
Testimonies, Healing Reports and God Sized Miracles

Stories of the Spirit of God moving in powerful ways are spreading to other churches, houses of prayer and prayer ministries in Virginia.  One of these places the Lord has been moving in a mighty way is The Prayer Furnace in Fredericksburg, VA.   www.theprayerfurnace.org 

The Prayer Furnace Awakening Worship & Healing Team from Fredericksburg, VA will be leading us on Saturday night, July 17th beginning at 7:00pm.  This is a HUGE opportunity to come for healing AND to receive impartation to bless others in your church, your workplace, your school or university and your family!
