Let me tell you about what the Lord did for me.A number of years ago a friend of mine was
volunteering at the United
international conference in Pittsburgh.She called me
and told me I needed to come down to the convention center and see the prayer
room they had set up there.With some
skepticism, I did.I was overwhelmed
almost immediately.The large room was
divided into several parts.One section
was set up for corporate prayer and worship, with a platform for speakers and
instruments and chairs for people to congregate.One section was a wall with prayer requests
tacked onto it.And one section was
filled with interactive prayer stations.This was unlike anything I had ever seen before.They were divided by curtain partitions and
each one had a specific prayer theme, like prayer for the nations or repentance
or the Presence of God.Each one was a
physical representation of the theme, with an action or activity you were
invited to do to enact your prayer.For
instance, there was a station to acknowledge broken areas in your life.It consisted of a display of a variety of
pottery, both beautiful and ordinary.The reminder that He is the Potter and we are the clay was unmistakable.To allow the Lord to release you from your brokenness,
the prayer involved writing that brokenness on a shard of a clay pot and
smashing it with a hammer.It was so
There were many other stations and the Lord used them for a dramatic
encounter with me.And in the midst of
that experience, I heard His call to go out and create these kinds of stations
for others.I now have several stations
prepared and He is always giving me ideas for more.These prayer stations can be used together
with “Created To Worship” or set up as a prayer experience on their own.
