This week I am leading worship at the Midwest Prayer Conference sponsored by Harvest Prayer Ministries. The keynote speaker is Dr Henry Blackaby. Dr Blackaby is the author of “Experiencing God” as well as a host of other great resources. During the main sessions (we have had two so far), Henry speaks and then I come up and lead a worship time with open altars and people praying around the room (much like a typical exchange gathering).
It has been another reminder how the teaching effects the worship response. Following a guy like Dr Blackaby is a charge. He is a brilliant teacher and brings massive life experience (and a healthy dose of conviction).
I think I could have walked up and sang “Twinkle-twinkle Little Star” and the place would erupt with God. It’s a thin place for sure.
I would recount some of the content of what Dr Blackaby shared or our worship experience, but my head is still trying to get around everything!
