Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas last week, and then set its sights on Florida and the OneHope office. The region of the Sunshine State I live in weathered moderate winds and rain, but Dorian caused considerable damage in other places along the East Coast. In the few days leading up to the impending storm, I was reminded to make prayer my first response instead of the last resort.
As leaders, storms of all kinds can come our way – physical, emotional, and spiritual. Ephesians 6:12 reminds us that we battle against powers and principalities of the unseen world. Prayer should be a habit deeply ingrained in our lives, no matter what season we are in.[Tweet “Prayer should be a first response instead of a last resort”]
My friend, Pastor Scott Wilson from Oaks Church, just released an amazing new book called P3: praying in the Spirit, with understanding, and in agreement. It’s all about the power of prayer to transform your life and leadership. Scott explains how everyone on your team can play a critical role in hearing from the Holy Spirit. This cultivates unity and helps us make better decisions all around.
Management guru Peter Drucker said, “Making good decisions is a crucial skill on every level.” Who better to seek guidance from than the Holy Spirit? We can welcome the Holy Spirit to speak into every part of our day, instead of Him serving as a convenient addition.
I love that Scott is providing this resource for free. He has a passion to build the Church and see lives radically changed when the Holy Spirit is allowed to rush into our lives and interrupt our agendas. This book will compel you to renew a commitment of intentional prayer. Visit p3book.org to download your free copy today.
