Here are some of the comments:
We did corporate confession in a different mode than Wednesday, and the pastors there came up and individually laid hands on, and blessed, and assured each person of God's complete forgiveness. Everyone, I think, went home blessed. Thank you for the chance to do this. - Father Peter Hansen, St. Augustine
The prayer meeting was a big success! We had about 70 people from churches around Chico. The format consisted of worship to get our hearts ready for prayer, breaking into small groups to pray, and taking communion together. The first segment of prayer centered around focusing on the issues that bring division amongst the churches, the second was about blessing specific groups around Chico that are ministering to and meeting the needs of hurting people, and the third was praying for our nation and the world around us. And, at the very end, a woman spontaneously felt that the group should come forward and lay hands on me. Some gave me words from the Lord and others prayed blessing. It was a very encouraging (and surprising) way to end the service. Thank you for putting together this event and asking the Vineyard to be a part of it! - Pastor Chris Reyes, Vineyard Christian Fellowship
It was wonderful to be called to intentional worship, repentance and unity as the body of Christ in Chico! It was beautiful to see a fuller picture of the manifestation of Jesus in our city through various churches and their ministry. Blessings to all as we seek to be transformed into the image of Christ and pray that same transformation for our city and region! - Barb Volstad, La Iglesia Cristo Salva
Participating in this prayer event brought the declaration of unity over GOD'S Church in a powerful way. Each night was flavored with the wonderful diversity of our LORD as expressed by the people of GOD. As we come together to praise HIM, adore HIM, confess our sins to HIM, thank HIM and pray to HIM to bring heaven to earth we became 2 Chronicles 7:14 people. Mercy LORD, heal our land. - Jim and Kathleen Mathys, Neighborhood Church
What great a blessing to witness brothers and sisters in the city of Chico worship and prayer together with brother and sisters at Chico State and Youth With A Mission! It was an answered to my prayer for the 3 in 1: Chico congregations, campus ministries, and YWAM TOGETHER. May we go deep in walking out Jesus' prayer in John 17:20-23. - Dai Sup Han, Youth With A Mission
