Down the Silk Road 2000

19 July 2000

The Silk Road 2000 conference is just 2 days away! Of course, we are aware that a mere conference will change nothing. What we are believing God for is the birthing of something new in Central Asia. This will only take place as we birth in prayer the full plan and will of God for this area. In prayer we have felt that what God wants to do here goes very far beyond this conference. This is only a first step.

We need to see the breaking down of dividing walls between pastors and churches. We need to see the Kingdom of God become uppermost in the minds of believers. We need to experience unity in the Spirit of God. We need the birthing of a prayer movement in Kazkastan and Central Asia. We need the multiplication of churches throughout Central Asia. We must seize the moment in prayer and then put it into action in the wisdom and grace of God. Please lift up these needs in prayer!

There are several key times of ministry during the conference that should be covered in prayer (all times are local Almaty time - 12 hours difference from Central Standard Time in the US):

Friday, July 21st - from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, there will be a foot-washing among the pastors to promote unity, reconciliation and repentance. Please pray for a deep work of repentance and genuine forgiveness, that no one will just "go through the motions", that there will be a deep and lasting unity and bond of love in the Holy Spirit formed among the pastors of the churches of Central Asia.

Friday, July 21st - at the Stadium from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm, there will be a message from the main speaker (Luis Bush) and then 8 pastors representing a broad range of Christian leaders will stand and confess the sins of the churches (such as unbelief, intercultural intolerance, indifference, apathy, pride etc.). The pastors have already met and chosen the topics of repentance, and each sin will be mentioned and repented of in a prayer of repentance by a selected pastor. Please pray for deep repentance, for spiritual breakthrough, for strongholds to be broken, and for release from these sins for all pastors and believers.

Saturday, July 22nd - from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm, there will be a message from the main speaker (Roger Forster) then the same pastors who repented of sin the night before will now stand and proclaim blessings over Central Asia and in particular over Kazakstan. Please pray for these faith declarations to change the spiritual atmosphere of this area, for God's blessings and grace to be released over this region, and for believers to have faith to receive these blessings.

We are expecting the beginning of a move of God. Please believe with us, and pray for the birthing of this vision.
