We are asleep and in danger of dying in our sleep.
God is calling us to wake up!

Our hearts are cold –
God is wanting to bring the warmth of His love into our being.

We are half lovers –
God is wanting us to be consumed with passion for His Kingdom.

We are half givers –
God has given all for us and is wanting us to withhold nothing from Him.

We are half believers –
God is wanting to hear our ‘Yes’.

We are blind to the reality of dying churches and a dying culture
God is wanting to open our eyes.

We are deaf to His words and to the cry of the needy –
God is wanting to unstop our ears.

We are dumb in the face of injustice, idolatry and denial of life –
God is wanting to anoint our lips and end our deafening silence.

We are soiled with the ways of the world –
God is wanting to pour His cleansing waters over us.

We are in darkness –
God is wanting His light to shine on us, in us and through us.

We look inward, consumed with self –
God is calling us to look out, meeting Him in others.

We look down in depression and despair –
God is calling us to look up and be overwhelmed with His Glory.

We look back, captives of the past –
God is calling us to look forward with hope and expectation.

We are embracing a culture of death, decay and hopelessness –
God is calling us to newness and life.

We are separated from each other in our selfish individualism –
God is calling us to come together as one

We are tired and often despondent –
God is coming to make all things new.

We are cast down and defeated –
God is coming to raise us up.

We are surrounded by lies and deceit –
God is wanting us to embrace His Truth.

Our roots are dry and there is little life within us –
God is wanting to water our roots to bring blossom and fruit.

We consume poison, damaging us in body, mind and spirit –
God is inviting us to receive the Bread of Life.

GOD IS CALLING HIS PEOPLE TO RISE UP NOW AS THE LIVING BODY OF CHRIST.
WE ARE CALLED TO PROCLAIM AND LIVE THE RADICAL GOSPEL.
TOGETHER OUR PRAYER MUST BE FOR THE FIRE OF GOD’S SPIRIT TO BLAZE ACROSS THE LAND.
