Teshuvah Sacred Assembly
Attached is an outline of a Teshuvah Sacred Assembly for August 21, 2017.
The first portion is a teaching which connects the symbolism of the Teshuvah Eclipse with the traditional Jewish Teshuvah scriptures of Psalm 27, inviting a return to God’s presence, and Ezekiel 33, warning of judgment.
Next comes a prayer for personal repentance and return to God based Jesus’ 40 Day temptation and the scripture segments He quoted to confound Satan. Then comes a prayer for the Church to be united in Christ, keying off of Jesus’s prayer in John 17. Following this is the prayer to heal our land from 2nd Chronicles 7:14. Lastly, there is a summary prayer for revival.
In an actual meeting there would also be worship and spirit led prayer.
You might also note that the last chapter of the Teshuvah Eclipse book carries these prayer points through the 40 days of Teshuvah.
