There is something that happens when God’s people begin to simply “try”. Another word for try would be - Seek. When we seek together, we seem to get a clearer "signal" where we can communicate or commune with God.
God loves to inhabit the praises of his people.
It’s as if our prayers and worship weave a network, a “tent” he can dwell in.
We meet him in that "tent",
bringing with us our aches and pains...
Kavvanah Nights are Ekko’s tent gatherings.
Kavvanah simply means heartfelt focused prayers.
Prayers sometimes too deep for words, filled with intent and focus, and sometimes agony and always with honesty. It’s the prayer Hannah prayed when crying out silently to her God because of her barren state. God answered, God heard her silent anguish. His answer was Samuel. Probably the greatest prophet and definitely my favorite.
Have you ever prayed like that?
Loud prayers from heart but can barely make a sound?
It’s a groan. It’s a longing. It’s pain. It’s hope.
Something’s been happening at our Kavvanah Nights. People are opening up. People are encountering God. We’re learning to pray,
learning to worship.
we’re learning to how to seek him.
