The Holy Spirit is bringing the Church to a new place of prayer that we haven't seen in this generation. This kind of praying is prayer on the other side of words and is wrought in a people who have been delivered from their own strength, wisdom, and resource. This kind of praying is ugly, desperate, and vulnerable as God delivers us from our programs, personalities, and strategies, and gifts us the greatest gift He could give: The Gift of Tears.
In this course we will see how God leads us to this kind of prayer, how He uses the brokenness of our circumstances, and the greatest pains of our life to turn into the kind of intercession that ministers to His heart the most and redeems the worst of situations. One of the primary things exposed in the church in 2020 was how hard our hearts have become. We are in need of great tenderizing to sweep across the global church so we can reconnect with His heart and see His kingdom released in the earth. The gift of tears is God’s gift to us to make us tender again so that our words and lives can actually cut through the toxic, polarized culture we find ourselves in.
