Overflow Mission Prayer Focus
Prayer Focus Overview > This week’s prayer focus is about overflowing in the Holy Spirit, practicing being filled with the Holy Spirit as a lifestyle and culture rather than an event, truly being satisfied alone in Jesus Christ, identifying any and all footholds our adversary has in our hearts or lives and bringing those strongholds to him for deliverance, healing, and spiritual renewal, becoming spiritual gift givers to the nations through our prayers, friendship, and disciple making. Maranatha!
Open Rivers > The poor and needy seek water, but there is none, their tongues fail for thirst. I, the LORD, will hear them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. I will open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree, the myrtle and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the cypress tree and the pine and the box tree together, that they may see and know, and consider and understand together, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it. (Isaiah 41:17-20 NKJV)
Prayer Focus > forsaken places, forgotten lands, miraculous streams, diverse trees, new life in the desert, breathing on dry bones, living water wellsprings
Counterfeit Glory > There was no water for the people, so they came together against Moses & Aaron. They argued saying, “We should have died in front of the LORD as our brothers did. Why did you bring the LORD’s people into this desert? Are we and our animals to die here? Why did you bring us from Egypt to this terrible place? It has no grain, figs, grapevines, or pomegranates, and there’s no water to drink!”
So Moses & Aaron left the people and went to the entrance of the Meeting Tent. There they bowed facedown, and the glory of the LORD appeared to them. The LORD said to Moses, “Take your walking stick, and you and your brother Aaron should gather the people. Speak to that rock in front of them so that its water will flow from it. When you bring the water out from that rock, give it to the people and their animals.”
So Moses took the stick from in front of the LORD, as he had said. Moses & Aaron gathered the people in front of the rock, and Moses said, “Now listen to me, you who turn against God! Do you want us to bring water out of this rock?” Then Moses lifted his hand and hit the rock twice with his stick. Water began pouring out, and the people and their animals drank it.
But the LORD said to Moses & Aaron, “Because you did not believe me, and because you did not honor me as holy before the people, you will not lead them into the land I will give them.” (Numbers 20:1-12 NCV)
Prayer Focus > temptation to impatience, not raising ourselves up, trusting and waiting on God’s provision, quick to listen and slow to become frustrated, unconditional love for everyone
Holy Spirit Fountain > Jesus replied, “If you only knew who I am and the gift that God wants to give you – you’d ask me for a drink, and I would give to you living water.” The woman replied, “But sir, you don’t even have a bucket and this well is very deep. So where do you find this ‘living water’? Do you really think that you are greater than our ancestor Jacob who dug this well and drank from it himself, along with his children and livestock?”
Jesus answered, “If you drink from Jacob’s well you’ll be thirsty again and again, but if anyone drinks the living water I give them, they will never thirst again and will be forever satisfied! For when you drink the water I give you it becomes a gushing fountain of the Holy Spirit, springing up and flooding you with endless life!”
The woman replied, “Let me drink that water so I’ll never be thirsty again and won’t have to come back here to draw water.” (John 4:10-15 TPT)
