You have heard the expression - "Mountain Top" experience. It usually is used when something awesome happens in our lives. Mountain top experiences usually allow us to see life from a fresh perspective and are connected to great accomplishments, people and events. Last night was one of those experiences for myself and nearly 130 others from our community. But instead of a mountain top experience, we had a "Roof top" experience!
Last night members of Broadman Baptist Church and others from the community gathered on the rooftop of one of the Parking Decks in Cuyahoga Falls to look over the city and pray for God to cast His vision over Cuyahoga Falls and the surrounding area. It was truly a moving experience as we sang songs about God's vision - "Be thou my vision" and about Christ being the God of our city - "God of this City". There were inspiring messages from Pastor Chris, Rev. Rick and Pastor Mike about living out God's vision in our lives, homes, community, schools, work places, church and beyond. It was humbling to pray for the people of this city to find the God of this city. I was truly a motivating experience that brought people together in unity to seek God.
All those who attended this outdoor worship service seeking God and proclaiming His ways over our city were truly blessed. It was visionary, inspiring, and moving. There was an overwhelming awareness of God's presence and peace. God's vision to take the Gospel to the city of Cuyahoga Falls was prayed over our city as a prayer chain, symbolizing a compass, allowed those present to pray to the North, East, South and West declaring and exalting Jesus as the God of this city!
We will continue to pray, knowing that when Christ is the God of our city greater things are yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this city! There is no one like God...He is the Lord!
