Day 6 – June 4
People in attendance will receive a deeper relationship with the Trinity through teachings, encounters, prayer, and worship. An awakening of the gifts of the Holy Spirit will be recognized along with miracles, signs, and wonders to proclaim throughout the Annual Conference. The 5K Race will usher in the anointing of the Holy Spirit and break chains of bondage over Indiana.
Psalm 105:1-6 The Message
“Hallelujah! Thank God! Pray to him by name! Tell everyone you meet what he has done! Sing him songs, belt out hymns, translate his wonders into music! Honor his holy name with Hallelujahs, you who seek God. Live a happy life! Keep your eyes open for God, watch for his works; be alert for signs of his presence. Remember the world of wonders he has made, his miracles, and the verdicts he’s rendered— O seed of Abraham, his servant, O child of Jacob, his chosen.”
1 Corinthians 12:4-11 The Message
4-11 “God’s various gifts are handed out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people! The variety is wonderful:
wise counsel; clear understanding; simple trust; healing the sick; miraculous acts;
proclamation; distinguishing between spirits; tongues; and interpretation of tongues.
All these gifts have a common origin, but are handed out one by one by the one Spirit of God. He decides who gets what, and when.”
As the runners and walkers begin, they pass the torch of faith so future generations will run stronger to prepare for the return of Jesus, spreading the glory of God throughout Indiana. God has ordained for all of us to focus on Jesus in order to complete the race with exuberance.
When the saints of God are gathered under one roof, a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit brews, and the fragrance is breath-taking to behold. Inhale the anointed messages of the speakers, musicians, and teachers. Capture the prayers of the righteous proclaiming the realization of miracles, signs, and wonders. We are pregnant with anticipation as your people unite their gifts and talents to be “World Changers.” Religious curses are broken over Indiana.
Prayer: Oh God, Forgiving Jesus, and Empowering Holy Spirit, we come before you seeking your divine intervention and inspiration to come upon the Indiana United Methodist Annual Conference. We decree and declare your holy presence be felt throughout the Convention Center, hotels, businesses, and wherever the anointed people travel. In the name of Jesus Christ, we proclaim God’s purposes will be fulfilled at the Indiana United Methodist Annual Conference. Protect the participants from injury and sickness as they figuratively run the race God has ordained for them. Train with endurance through the power of the Trinity to complete the contest. Thank you for hearing our prayers as we race to become “World Changers.” Amen.
