The Watch for Awakening is an ongoing 24-7 Prayer movement, comprised of seven prayer watches (of roughly 50 days each) over a year period. We have felt a deep resonance with a particular word from the prophet Isaiah. If a single text could focus our labor, it is this one:
This is our watch word. In the spirit of Isaiah 62 we are posting watchers on the walls of this world who will never be silent day or night. We will give ourselves no rest, and give the Lord no rest, till he brings a great awakening and establishes his Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
We will watch and pray. We will listen and speak. Word and Spirit. Heart and home. Church and city. Until heaven breaks in on earth with great awakening.
It’s not exactly a Bible study, though the Bible is both the source and subject. Though you will learn something about the Bible along the way—its history, context, original languages, and authors—the goal is not educational in nature. Rather, it's transformational.
Seedbed is more interested in folks knowing Jesus than knowing about Jesus. To that end, each reading begins with the definitive inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the ongoing, unfolding text of Scripture. Following that is a short and, hopefully, substantive insight from the text and some aspect of its meaning. For insight to lead to deeper influence, we turn the text into prayer. Finally, influence must run its course toward impact. This is why we ask each other questions. These questions are not designed to elicit information but to crystallize intention.
Discipleship always leads from inspiration to intention and from attention to action.
