The Hour Has Come.
Or, at least, the day has. It’s July 20, 2012, the day so long envisioned, so eagerly anticipated, so intricately planned, and so earnestly prayed over by people spanning the Atlantic. Our hope is high.
One can sense the excitement of the young people who have dedicated countless hours to making GYC Europe a reality. One can’t help but be inspired by their diligence, passion, and enthusiasm down to even the smallest detail of preparation. Everything is ready—the stage is decorated, the outreach bags are packed (GYC pens included), and exactly one thousand five hundred and two chairs are set up in the main meeting hall. All that’s left to do now is to wait, wait for the hour itself coming in 0 minutes (watch now).
And, of course, to pray. O, how we must pray! We—here on site—and you—reading this around the world—must pray. “We are at the cusp of changing earth’s history.” Hearing Justin say that at volunteer worship this morning gave us goosebumps. Let that sink in for a minute. Do you hear? We are at the cusp of changing earth’s history! This is why we must pray. Dare you miss out?
