So what is ENOUGH?
Mike Betts explains ...
I believe there is an urgent need for us to put a stake in the ground and say, That’s it! We've had ENOUGH of the poverty, the dysfunction and the pain in our broken world.
But, importantly, we also need to realise and grasp that God is ENOUGH, that he is sufficient and we do not need to go further than him to bring order and restoration to our broken world. His sufficiency is our confidence. We can come to him with big requests; requests that will see thousands of people come to know Christ.
Rather than trying to solve things ourselves, we simply need to invest in prayer and make prayer our number one priority. I am particularly stirred to revive corporate prayer and intercession in the local churches and bring us to a whole new level of intimacy with our living God. I am stirred to change the definition of heroes to include those who are diligently interceding and continually circling people and situations in prayer until there is breakthrough!
ENOUGH therefore is an initiative that will inspire and resource local churches and individuals to increase their desire for God through worship and prayer, and to engage in prayer with vibrant emerging apostolic vision before them, in order to see lives and situations transformed and a broken world healed.
It is time we said ENOUGH. Are you ready?
How will ENOUGH work?
We've been joined by thousands for three ENOUGH half nights of prayer during 2016. Now we'd like to invite you to join us during 2017.
These are not just part of your church's prayer routine, but are extraordinary prayer meetings. This is a radical and urgent call to us to gather everyone in our family of churches to pray and intercede together at the same time. Often we can see hundreds praying together corporately for different church family issues. How great it would be to see thousands praying together in many locations for many situations in many nations, all at the same time!
The events will happen in a number of church hubs, facilitated by a hub leader, with churches joining their local hub for the night. The evenings will include a family meal, worship and plenty of prayer. We'll provide training for hub leaders and an exciting menu of ideas and approaches to choose from to structure the evening and provoke new ways of praying, and to energise us about prayer and release us from some of the barriers we sometimes feel when we come to pray.
ENOUGH will take place on three Friday nights in 2017:
- Friday 17 March 2017 (Completed)
- Friday 7 July 2017
- Friday 10 November 2017
The next half night of prayer (following the live streamed event) is on Friday 7 July 2017 and will take place at these locations.
ENOUGH is an opportunity to invite God to change history through our prayers. You have a part to play!
