Listening prayer, prophetic preaching, Biblical reflection, commissioning for leadership, and prayer for empowerment…these are just some of the significant snapshots from the 11th annual Fellowship Gathering for the Dunamis Fellowship of Britain & Ireland. It was a weekend of intensive work, spiritual nurture, and wonderful God-moments of encounter with the Holy Spirit.
Some 25 people gathered for a one-day mini-Exousia which provided further equipping for people in leadership, dealing especially with intercession, Track leadership, worship, and leading Listening Prayer.
Then numbers increased to 38 for the weekend’s Annual Fellowship Gathering which began with Communion and a prophetic challenge to ask ourselves if people see the glory of God in us as they did with Moses?
Over the weekend we dwelt on several scriptures which shaped the event.
Habakkuk 3:17-19 invited us to to say “Yet I will rejoice in the Lord”, choosing trust and joy even in the face of difficulty.
From Ezekiel 37 came the question “What are our dry bones?” and the promise that these (and we) can indeed be restored to become an army.
James 3:17 and Proverbs 9 highlighted the character of wisdom and the need for discernment since wisdom and folly sometimes appear very similar.
And John 7:37-39 turned our attention afresh to the living waters of the Holy Spirit promised to us by Jesus.
We shared an overview of the whole DFB&I ministry, asked the wider questions raised by PRMI’s prayer visit to Israel, and took time in prayer to seek revelation from the Lord.
We sent people on a prayer Walk of Encounter which focused especially on the DFB&I and on our personal calling and commitment to this ministry.
We worshipped the Lord and prayed for empowerment and fresh infilling from the Holy Spirit.
We shared testimonies of how lives have been impacted by the Spirit through Dunamis, and we commissioned Jacqui Clarke as Director for a new Dunamis Project track in North Wales.
Although we have much unfinished business, with further discernment needed and more developments likely, we are encouraged by the fact that God is clearly at work among us, has a future for us, and is calling us to be co-workers with Him in extending His Kingdom.
