Introduction Chapters

The Introduction chapters provide important context for why we created Seraphim River as a practical prayer handbook: a dedication to our teammate Rob Harvey who ascended to heaven in March 2020, a foreward by Don Buege about Jesus Christ’s precious freedom, an explanation as to why prayer is the most important pursuit for any disciple, a strategy for praying together with other disciples, and an anointing prayer that our Heavenly Father will bring himself great glory among the nations through the distribution, training, and enjoyment of these prayer resources.

Resources to Read, Study, & Discuss

Seraphim River Vision

An explanation of the name Seraphim River: the vision James saw, how the vision relates to a lifestyle of prayer, and what happens when more people pray more often, especially together. Read and reflect through the vision scenes and discuss the vision with someone. Pray for our generation to enter into and abide in Jesus’ Holy Spirit Freedom River. Explore the Spiritual Gifts & Fruit guide to learn more about yourself. Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you about the way God has uniquely designed and called you to spend time with him. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you discernment about the spiritual gifts and fruit of others around you, so that you can encourage them in their walk with God and pray for their unfolding destinies.

Seraphim River Story Set

These stories will help you see how different disciples praised and prayed. One of the best ways for learning how to pray is praying together. Worship and prayer work together. We remember God’s promises, count our blessings, confess our struggles, share our needs, rest in his presence, and listen to his voice.

Hear Jesus’ Holy Spirit Lessons

Explore this set of 24 prayer skills to help you learn how to hear Jesus’ Holy Spirit speaking to you. Hearing Jesus is not complicated: he speaks, and we listen and hear. Still, many disciples struggle perpetually to hear him clearly and often. Breakthrough will come as we keep trying. Just remember that our Heavenly Father rescued us through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross in order to restore us to himself as eternal family and friends. What God wants from his creation is relationship. He wants to reveal his heart to us daily as we spend time with him. He is our Teacher, Shepherd, Helper, Counselor, and Companion.

Watches & Streams (8 Prayer Watches)

Follow us through a 24-hour cycle of eight prayer watches: four night watches and four day watches. Discover various ways to pray and what to pray for, with creative ideas for getting practical with prayer, discipleship, and Jesus’ Great Commission. Remember God’s promises, enjoy simple prayer prompts to get you started in your conversations with Jesus’ Holy Spirit, and dive deeply in the worldview and passions of a prayer warrior. You can pray for any of these focuses and kingdom streams at any time. You don’t have to pray for specific things at specific times. Jesus told us to pray at all times in the Holy Spirit as he teaches us how to pray one day at a time.

Projects, Training, & Generosity

We often receive requests for more information about how to support our Blazing Trees team as we continue to pray, encourage and consult with leaders, and innovate disciplemaking resources for Jesus’ Great Commission.

Here’s three next steps for you to pray about taking:

  • Pray (intercede)
  • Give (invest)
  • Advocate (make personal connections)

We need more people praying often for our team as we face immense and persistent spiritual warfare. We need more monthly donors investing in our operations and travel. We need more advocates making personal connections in trustworthy business circles, spreading the news about what God is up to @ Blazing Trees. Ready for a conversation?

Farewell Commission Prayer

In the end, it really does matter.

It matters what we believe. It matters what we treasure. It matters what we say and what we do. It matters what we think and how we make others feel.

But most importantly, it matters to whom we belong.

By God’s grace and through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, we will find that we belong to you in the End.

So, Father in Heaven, we worship and praise you. Thank you for the magnificent gift of prayer. After everything you’ve been through with humanity, you still welcome us into your arms, ready to listen to our troubles and reveal your wisdom to our hearts.

Father, we all ache deeply in our souls for Jesus’ Return. We are ready, and we can’t wait to be with you face to face and hear your voice with our ears.

Father, thank you for your abiding love for the nations, and for your courageous covenant to adopt new family members into your eternal heavenly kingdom from every tribe, tongue, nation, and people. The waiting is worth it, so that one day, there’s no tribe left behind. 

Until then, we rest expectantly in your Seraphim River. It’s in Jesus’ mighty, matchless name we pray, Amen.
