PRAYING THE BIBLE
When we engage in worship and prayer, we are not floundering and left to our own soulish thoughts and feelings. God has given us tools (the Word) and an expert (His Holy Spirit) in the use of those tools. In this session, you will experience greater conviction of the importance of engaging Holy Spirit and the Word in prayer. You will learn practical ways to hear and respond to the Lord, especially in the place of corporate prayer leading.
Psalms 45:8 says, “Out of ivory palaces, stringed instruments have made You
glad.” There is continuous music in the throne room of God. In heaven, there are “flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder.” Psalms 33:3 says” Play skillfully unto the Lord.” The Lord loves to be ministered to with music; it moves His heart. In this lesson, I will teach you the basics of musicianship: how to play from your head and your heart, what to do once the song is over, how to flow spontaneously/prophetically with your instrument, and how to support a worship leader as a musician.
JOEL FIGUEROA & TRAES HOWARD
Why do we get burned out? Why do we end up bored with what we first loved to do? When did ministry get complicated? In this breakout session we will discuss the importance of why our “why” is foundational to ot only ministry, worship leading and creating, but in life. Let’s learn to behold before we become anything.
THE LEVITICAL LIFESTYLE
Jesus said that His house would be a house of prayer for all nations. Brick by brick, He places each of us like living stones into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. As levitical priests we first and foremost fulfill the first and greatest commandment to love the LORD our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. In so doing, we learn how to come before His presence, how to minister to His heart, and how to go out full of His Spirit to be kings and priests in the earth.
LIFESTYLE OF PRAYER
BRETT BELL & COREY RUSSELL
When King David decided to establish his earthly kingdom around the presence of God, he said, “If it seems good to you, and if it is of the Lord our God...let us bring the ark of our God back to us, for we have not inquired at it since the days of Saul” (1 Chronicles 13:2-3). The word inquired in Hebrew is darash which means to seek God through prayer and worship. UPPERROOM defines prayer as relationship with God. Prayer, then, is the foundation of our life in God. Prayer reestablishes the Garden of Eden reality of walking with God in the cool of the day. This workshop will explore what a lifestyle of prayer looks like, starting from an eternal global movement perspective, working our way down to a personal lifestyle of prayer.
