A prayer for Christians from Ukraine, Russia, & around the world

This is my prayer and hope for Christians from Ukraine, Russia, and around the world:

May the body of Christ around the world begin to boldly and brightly be “the light of the world,” “a city set on a hill” that “cannot be hidden.” May we gather in open town meetings led by God’s Inner Light, the heart-igniting “Flame of God’s Love” called the Holy Spirit, who releases the presence and power of the living, resurrected Jesus Christ. May God’s city councils come out of the darkness of “having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof” and become golden lampstands with the risen Jesus standing among them, like the ones in the book of Revelation.

(The Greek word translated as church in most English Bibles {ekklesia} is the name of the city council/town meeting in ancient Greek city-states. By losing that ancient truth contemporary Christianity has missed out on much of who we are and what is supposed to happen when we gather in Jesus’ name. May God bless, guide, and manifest His Living Word in world-wide ekklesias as Christ-follower learn to gather in Jesus’ name, and be empowered by entering into full obedience to His, direction, and presence.)

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
