We were out of town and were unable to schedule Room 24 at our home New Year’s Eve. We missed the occasion as it is always special to start the New Year with prayer. Instead, we were blessed with the arrival of our 8th grandchild, “Lily Joy Fogg” on January 4th and were especially blessed to spend the New Year waiting for her arrival. Funny, but in retrospect, much of this COVID year has been spent waiting. For the church in particular, we all have a sense that God is doing a new thing in our midst. Almost like waiting for the birth of a baby. We have slowed down and a lot of what God is doing has been happening underneath the surface events we typically give our attention to. February 19/20, 2021 was our first “Room 24” for the year. Our expectations were high as we sensed that God had finally said “go”. We gathered to blow the shofar for prayer in 2021. As we followed our pattern for “tabernacle prayer” on Friday night we were directed to focus in and choose to put our focus on the fear of the Lord. God moved powerfully in that time. Most of us mentioned that theme as key during the rest of the hours. The Holy Spirit is like that. We receive a revelation that changes everything even as we continue with our agenda. So many of those who are part of the “Room 24” team shared particular areas of prayer during the 24 hours and we were all freshly blessed by their words. In the coming year, we sense that greater participation. God has given us a remnant in Room 24. Individuals who make up His greater plan. When we come together, we are refreshed by His intercessors and are grateful to have found each other. Our March event will be at Living Word Church in Tucson on March 19/20. Please plan on joining us. Isaiah 43:19 NASB Behold, I am going to do something new, now it will spring up. Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.
