2024 Prayer Walks

This year our monthly focus is prayer for the Ecclesia, defined as God’s “called out ones”.  We ask God to remember His promises to the Ekklesia for His names’ sake. Knowing that people are called to live here that they might seek God and find Him (Acts 17:26-28). We corporately ask for forgiveness of sin and extend forgiveness to those who have sinned against us, believing our prayers will dismiss and displace the enemy of the Ecclesia. We release angelic assignments with the word of the Lord and our faith.

Our decree: “Grace & peace from He who is, and was, and is to come; who has gathered us into His Kingdom and made us the Ekklesia, His called-out ones” (Revelation 1:4,6).

 

More on Ekklesia from scripture

EKKLESIA – Excerpts taken from Dr. Patti Amsden’s book, Ekklesia, Kingdom Government In Operation, Camden House Books.
The English word church is translated from the Greek word Ekklesia. Ekklesia is a compound word from ek, meaning “out,” and kaleo, meaning “to call.” Simply defined, Ekklesia means “those who are called out.”
Ekklesia is commonly translated as “church” in the New Testament:
 Acts 11:26 says that “Barnabas and Saul met with the church [ekklesia]” in Antioch.
1 Corinthians 15:9 Paul says that he had persecuted the church [ekklesia] of God.”
(1 Peter 2:9). The Greek ekklesia is the basis for our English words ecclesiastical (“pertaining to the church”) and ecclesiology (“the study of doctrine concerning the church”).
The “called-out ones,” are believers whom God has called out of the world and into His wonderful light.
It is important that the church today understand the definition of ekklesia. The church needs to see itself as being “called out” by God. If the church wants to make a difference in the world, it must be different from the world. Salt is different from the food it flavors. God has called the church to be separate from sin (1 Peter 1:16), to embrace fellowship with other believers (Acts 2:42), and to be a light to the world (Matthew 5:14). God has graciously called us unto Himself: “‘Come out from them and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you’” (2 Corinthians 6:17).

February Prayer Assignments:

We are asking God to remember His promises to the Ekklesia for His names’ sake, as we open our hearts and listen carefully to what the Spirit is saying to all the churches; circling our territory with songs and shouts of deliverance (Revelation 3, Psalm 32:7 TPT).

Wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you eternal  doors! Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in. You ask, “Who is this King of   Glory.” He is Yahweh, armed and ready for battle! The Holy One, the true one, who has David’s key. Who opens doors that none can shut and who closes doors that none can open (Psalm 24 TPT).

National Prayer Assignment for Waterways:

January 6, 2024 at Grace Fellowship Church 123 W. 10th St. Erie

PrayErie will continue to prayer walk the land, following Jesus’ example recorded in Luke 8:1; “They began to tour the cities and villages of Galilee.” After a time of prayer, we will walk the neighborhood, leaving “Rock Solid” blessings behind! You are invited and welcome to continue touring the cities and villages of Erie with us as we circle the county (counter-clockwise) the first Saturday of each month. May I encourage us to keep prayers up for our territory, where ever we are, whenever we can!

Over the past eight years we’ve walked the city square praying for the 7 Mountains of cultural influence. We’ve been around the county praying for education and municipalities; for people to have, “safe dwellings, quiet habitations and peaceful resting places” (Isaiah 32:18). We’ve prayed at Erie ports of entry and at county, state and international borders. As we’ve gathered at different locations, God’s prayer warriors have been faithful to come out and pray. For me, one of the best parts of these city/county tours has been meeting the prayer warriors who have been praying for their communities for years!

Prayers Up!
