God is calling the body of Christ in Greater Cincinnati to pray and repent in the following areas:

  

  

This year, God has given us two important areas on which we should focus this time of prayer and repentance. 

  • One is the history of the Cincinnati Board of Education’s battle in 1869 that became the launching pad for our nation’s current laws separating church and state. Reading the Bible in schools was a part of the Protestant roots and practices of American schools prior to the rise of free, public schooling. When a Cincinnati Roman Catholic Bishop raised an objection about Catholic children being required to read from the King James version of the Bible. From this objection, a battle erupted between the Catholic and Protestant churches. Their division and self – seeking bargaining with the board of education, led to the following proposed amendment to pass: “Resolved, that religious instruction and the reading of religious books, including the Holy Bible, are prohibited in the Common Schools (public) of Cincinnati it being the true object and intent of this rule to allow the children of the parents of all sects and opinions, in matters of faith and worship, to enjoy alike the benefit of the Common School Fund.” When the case was heard by the Ohio Supreme Court, after much debate, in 1873 they unanimously ruled to allow the Cincinnati Board of Education to suspend Bible reading in Cincinnati’s public schools. God said that many of the issues we are dealing with in our children and our schools today are a direct result of this monumental decision made by the Cincinnati Board of Education, the Ohio Supreme Court and ultimately the nation. He is calling His people in Cincinnati to repent for allowing division in the church to open a door for the enemy that would impact our nation for generations.
  • The second is the call for believers to operate in the power and authority that we have been given by God through Christ Jesus in Mark 16:15-21. Jesus tells us that these signs SHALL accompany those who believe, cast out demons, speak with new tongues, pick up snakes or drink anything deadly and it won’t harm us, lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. God is calling His body to lay aside every weight and sin that so easily besets us (Hebrews 12:1), to live in total submission to Him in every area of our lives (James 4:7-10) and to walk in the authority (2 Timothy 1:7, Luke 10:19, Matthew 18:18-20)that He has given us as the body of Christ in order for healing to take place in our city (2 Chronicles 7:14). If the body is going to be effective ambassadors in dealing with the issues in our families, communities, cities and even our nation, we MUST be whole and FREE (Through Christ, we are the answer to changing the hearts of the people and ultimately the condition of our communities.

This is an URGENT CALL to EVERY Christian Congregation and Believer

  

RECLAIM

Our place in God and get back in alignment with His will. To humble ourselves, pray, seek and turn according to 2 Chronicles 7:14. To refocus on the things of God according to Matt. 16:23-25

RECOVER

All the enemy has stolen (we lost) while out of alignment (out of His will). When we do this, God will hear from Heaven and forgive our sin according to 2 Chronicles 7:14. God will recover the soul of man (Matt. 16:26)

RESTORE

God will restore the city, the communities and the families to wholeness. God will heal the land (2 Chronicles 7:14) There is no access to the Kingdom of Heaven (eternal life) without restoration. (Matt. 16:27-28)

REFRESH

When the body has repented and turned back to God, our sins will be wiped out and we will experience times of refreshing from the Lord in our city, our communities, our homes and our congregations. (Acts 3:19-21)
