Don't do one single thing that would quench the mighty Holy Spirit

A Record of God's Mercies

Last night, hundreds gathered again for almost four hours at The Summit Church. God laid Isaiah 12 in our hearts as to His direction for the evening:

Isaiah 12
1 Then you will say on that day, "I will give thanks to You, O Lord; For although You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, And You comfort me.
2 "Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the Lord God is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation."
3 Therefore you will joyously draw water from the springs of salvation.
4 And in that day you will say, "Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name. Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that His name is exalted."
5 Praise the Lord in song, for He has done excellent things; Let this be known throughout the earth.
6 Cry aloud and shout for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, For great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

The Lord wonderfully came and allowed those attending to "joyously draw water from the springs of salvation.

· 14 people spontaneously baptized. Many had never been baptized, just been saved and some had their baptism on the wrong side of their conversion.

· A father who has struggled for years with an addiction confessing his need for prayer, the room erupting in "travail" over this brother for his full deliverance. Later, he has the privilege of baptizing both his son and daughter-it seemed that his obedience and humility opened the door for his children to obey the Lord.

· A young lady came weeping, whose husband had committed suicide in front of her 30 days ago. "I am so angry at God and I can't get over it." The church prayed heaven's grace down upon her and God's joy came to her heart. In God's providence, the pastor who did her husband's funeral was in attendance and took us to God's throne on her behalf. Her friend said, "Could I ask the church to give...my friend needs a car." An offering basket was placed on the altar and streams of people began to give. A while later a young man comes in late and finds out about the need and comes to the mic, "My dad called me yesterday and said he had a Ford Explorer that he needed to give away if there was anyone who needed it...(he turned to the young lady)...do you want the car?" She got the car and the $2856 that was in the offering basket!

· A businessman from NW Arkansas stood to encourage us by saying that a friend in Oklahoma had told him that God was doing something wonderful in Little Rock and he was here Thursday on business and came. They have been praying for the same in their area.

· A businessman from Russelville, Ark. came and said the same. He didn't want to miss what God was doing, was in town on business, showed up 2 hours early and went to prayer and by the time the service started was already in brokenness and tears.

· A staff member's daughter stands to confess that several years ago she had a child out of wedlock and was encouraged to share that with the church at that time but resisted that. The child miscarried, but now she comes to ask the church's forgiveness for what happened. The church shouts out their forgiveness and embraces her as does her husband and father (and Father!)

· A man comes to the meeting, leaves, gets 10 minutes away and is so grieved for his dying neighbor that he returns to ask for prayer which leads to intense prayer for his neighbor and OURS.

· Many, many other moments of people joyously drawing from the springs of salvation.

We record these for you because Isaiah 12 said we should "Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that His name is exalted" (vs. 4). We are hearing reports of people around the country praying for God's visitation in their churches and cities.

Would you pray with us that, if God so desires, He would visit all the churches in Central Arkansas so that this would quickly be something that is not located in one church.

We understand that Fellowship Bible/LR church students are having a student led prayer meeting at 9 pm praying for God to move. Mosaic church in LR has invited all their people to come tonight to the Summit and had a similar season of great prayer and spiritual activity on Wednesday night.

"Lord, rend the heavens and come down!"
