Prayer For Elevate 2012

    Elevate 2012 is fast approaching--Saturday night, July 7.  We think it may be the best concert yet even though they've all been wonderful!  Kutless, For King & Country, and Josh Wilson are the headline bands, with Terrace Lake Worship from Columbus, Indiana, kicking off the event at 5:00.  All the headline bands have had songs on Billboard's top 10 list of Contemporary Christian songs and/or albums.  I am always amazed when I think of little ole Martinsville hosting such amazing bands that play all over the world!
     Because we know it is the Lord's presence that changes lives and that "when two or more are gathered in His Name He is there" we will begin community prayer for Elevate 2012 tonight at the Martinsville Fairgrounds at 7:00 p.m., and will continue each Thursday night until the concert on July 7.  If you live in the area we invite you to come join us.  If you can't be there we would love for you to join us in Spirit and  pray with us wherever you are.
     We know prayer is the most important thing we can do for this concert and those attending.  Before Elevate 2010--our first concert--we felt the Lord gave us this scripture from Isaiah 45:2,3, as a promise:
       "I will go before you and will level the mountains;
        I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. 
        I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, 
        so that you may know that I am the Lord
the God of Israel, 
        who summons you by name."  
     We are asking for those hidden treasures and riches stored in secret places.  We pray that all who do not know how great and marvelous the Lord is and how much he loves each of us, will have a revelation of this during their time at Elevate.  We also pray it will be a fun, safe, memory-making time for all who come and all will sense God's Presence in everything that is said and done.
     Let the prayer, preparations, weather, locale, and all who participate bring glory to the One who is worthy of all our praise!
