We are beginning this post to record the great things the Lord is doing in our midst. The Lord is great and GREATLY TO BE PRAISED! Ask Him to open the eyes of your heart and to reveal Himself to you. If you have a “God sighting” to report in the form of a “glory story”, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Even just a few sentences of testimony can encourage someone else.
“Glory Story” #1: During the preparation for our recent Day of Prayer for Emmaus and the World on November 13, 2021, I knew that the Lord was asking me to seek Him and to write a prayer “guide” to mobilize others in prayer. I wrote a draft and then shared it with our intercessory team for additions and corrections. But when I went to write the final edition, something precious and supernatural happened. I could feel the manifest presence of the Lord in a very tangible way. He just showed up and I found myself with hands raised at my computer in pure worship of my Abba. I could feel His pleasure and even His anticipation of meeting with His people on that day. At the end of the day, when we gathered in prayer with the Elders, I again could feel His pleasure in our sanctuary. All I can say is “WOW! Lord, You are so good!” ~Gina
“Glory Story” #2: When Emmaus Road Community Church was launched back in 2003, we used to sing a particular song…”Did you feel the mountains tremble…?” I felt them tremble a few Sundays ago when the children led the congregation in the singing of Joy to the World. The congregation was in full voice. I felt the Spirit of God in our presence. I felt His pleasure—there was a true joy coming from our hearts. We were exalting our Lord together and it was powerful. I love having the children participate up front, although it’s not something we can do every Sunday. When we do though, the purity of their worship is palpable. Did you feel the mountains tremble? I did. ~Carol
