It’s a new season – The First Prayer Meeting at C-View Street

Rev. Phil consecrates worship space with burning White Sage

It's a new season, it's a new day.
A fresh anointing is flowing my way.
It's a season of power and prosperity.
It's a new season coming to me.

Praying As We Crossover

Jordan River

“Joshua told the people, ‘Consecrate yourselves,
for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.’” Joshua 3:5 (NIV)

“[We] can do all things through Christ who strengthens [us].” Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)

As a metaphor for our own ministry facility, the image of “promised land” is one given by Rev. Wanda Floyd, and this vision is now fulfilled in our eyes. As Imani prepares to enter a new chapter in its story, as we prepare to “cross the Jordan into the promised land” we enter a season of preparation, of consecration and rededication to our faith in God’s irresistible love. As this “promised land” at 3602 C-View Street is being prepared for occupancy in early 2011 we prepare (consecrate) ourselves during this season of prayer.

When You Get A Chance ...

Take a look at these words, and listen to Brian McKnight's prayerful rendition of this amazing verse:

The Prayers on the Wall …

Prayers about Imani's vision taped to the Sanctuary walls at the new Worship Center.Julie Weathers and Jim Manchester got together for the weekly Saturday morning Prayer Service at 10:00 am on November 20th. You’ll remember that at the people who attended the first Prayer Service in the new Worship Center on C-View Street, wrote their prayers and dreams for Imani on cards and taped them to the interior walls of the Sanctuary. Julie and Jim read those dreams and prayers aloud as a part of Saturday’s service.

Mary’s Song: a 2010 Advent Journey

“Mary’s Song: a 2010 Advent Journey”

Marys Song
Luke 1:46-56

In response to the angel Gabriel’s prophetic word to her, Mary breaks forth in jubilant song which echoes the words of earlier songs in the Hebrew scriptures. With power from some unseen place within her being this young peasant girl declares her devotion to God by surrendering her life to a dream, and a life, she had never planned for herself. Her song has come to be known as the “Magnificat,” which means “to magnify.” As we journey together into the holy seasons of Advent and Christmas, let us take notes from Mary on just what it may mean to “magnify” God through our daily living.
