A group of residents that Mayor Rhodes has consistently called Chicken Littles gathered at Nances Plaza tonight to pray for city-wide transformation.
Leaders in attendance made it clear this was not a political rally. The God being prayed to on this night rules all and is much larger than any city-wide politics.
The prayers from this group, however, did not sound like the prayers of frightened chicken littles. These were not Sunday school rote memory prayers. These were prayers that lifted up the authority of a God more powerful than any other. These were the very kind of prayers that either attract or highly offend non believers.
Local worshipers could be heard proclaiming that their God is greater than the power of money or colluded relationships. These prayers echoed across the streets into Flagg, Chester, and all down Yaupon. These were prayers of men and women who walk with a different kind of power inside themselves. These were the same prayers that transformed the ancient cities of Rome, Antioch, Ephesus, Phillipi, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, and Philadelphia.
These are the very same prayers that will transform the streets of Kings Highway, Oak Street, Carver, Ocean Boulevard, Pine Lakes Drive, Woodside Avenue, Pampas Drive, Wild Wood Dunes Trail, Porcher Drive, Ramsey Acres, and Springs Avenue.
These were the prayers of a people who have been invaded and are owned by the Spirit of the living God. The Spirit living inside these people called out and invited that same Spirit to invade and rule the entire city of Myrtle Beach.
While the crowd was no more than 25 people at best, with Judas dead, only 11 men prayed the town of Pentacost into a city that lead an entire Western Civilization Christian revolution.
Let’s see how God responds to this night of the weak and small calling out to the infinite.
