Something divine happens when we release power, surrender our efforts to God, and ask him to do what only he can do.
We know about the power of prayer. We live it every time we hear prayer requests, and more, when we celebrate praise reports.
What better occasion to ask God to do the extraordinary than VOUS Conference? As Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. said during Team Night, we have been preparing for not days, weeks, but months for Conference. Every detail that goes into Conference has gone through the eyes, hands, and care of so many. Now, just days before the Fillmore opens its doors for all of our attendees, we gathered one last time to expect, believe, and ask for this weekend to be a life-changing experience for everyone who enters. As Pastor Rich also mentioned, preparation builds expectation, and where expectation is, faith is as well.
See, VOUS Conference, at its core, is an “annual gathering dedicated to encountering God, equipping the church, and empowering the next generation of leaders”. That’s a big undertaking, one we know we cannot do alone. That’s why we gather to pray, because prayer takes our possible and activates the impossible that only God can do. Prayer is our eager petition to see God at work. It is our greatest tool in any endeavor we pursue.
We have prepared the place, made the call for those who will speak and the ones who will attend, and crafted some amazing surprises for everyone who comes through those doors. But we also know that without God’s presence, all will be in vain.
We’re hoping and believing in the change God’s presence will bring to people’s lives during VOUS Conference. Will you believe with us?
