Happy Birthday St Louis

February 2007

0715 February 2007

For St Louis’ 243rd birthday, the Lord sent us out to pray for the city. We knew we were starting at the high point of the city and the (approx) location where they originally crossed over the Mississippi River that resulted in the building of the city. In addition, with Mardi Gras only a few days away, we knew we were to pray over Soulard – in particular the location where the formalized St Louis Mardi Gras was conceived.

We felt the Lord calling us to sing over the city a song written by one of the prayer warriors called Awaken this Land – based on 1 Thessalonians 5:4-11

But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

We were calling things into alignment with His will. He gave us words to pray – awaken (arouse, stir; the elicitation of latent faculties, emotions, etc), agitate (to move violently, stir up, shake up), establish. Praying that everyone would take their place – align with His plan. Intercessors, leaders, people who don’t even know they’re leaders yet… everybody!

We prayed for the words of Deborah to be heard – stop putting up with your enemies – take your place! (Judges 4-5)
