Prayerwalk Colorado- Broomfield County

County Seat: Broomfield.

It’s a good day to pray for Broomfield! As you can see, the mountains in the distance make a beautiful backdrop for this smallest county in Colorado, and fifth smallest county in America. Being the smallest, however, it holds its own as the second most densely popoulated county in Colorado, second only to Denver. We had a sunny, clear day in Broomfield.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

We had the privledge of praying over several churches in town and the High School, then made our way to the Broomfield County Commons Park (above).

BROOMFIELD COUNTY COMMONS PARK

In Broomfield today, while we did pray over several local churches, we did not have contact people here to meet with. Instead, we travelled through the town, following the Lord’s leading on where to go and how to pray. When we arrived at the park, we prepared the ground to worship the Lord with a prophetic act we do in each county, where we put symbols of our prayers into the ground to claim the land for the Lord. I’d like to take a moment to explain the pictures you will see below, of just what the Lord has led us to do.

Tony digs a small hole, or “well” in the ground. This will represent our altar.

The first item he places in this well is a flat stone, or the “foundation” of our altar. (See I Kings 18, the story of Elijah’s confrontation with the prophets of Baal.)

As Tony arranges a set of small sticks over the stone, we also pray for the fire of God to come down, but not on the altar. We pray God sends His fire on the altar of our hearts first, then on the church, the county, our state and on His people across America.

The next items we place on this altar are these. We put in a chain link, and ask God to bind together the church as one, linking us closely as we worship one Lord as ONE BODY. We add a small container that holds a tiny scroll with the theme verse of this journey, Jeremiah 10:6-7:

There is NONE LIKE YOU Oh Lord. You are great, and great is Your Name in might! Who would not fear You, Oh King of the nations; indeed it is Your due; for among all the wise men of all the nations, and in all their kingdoms… THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU! Jeremiah 10:6-7.

We sprinkle mustard seed over the altar, asking God to grow faith in us and across the land, and we take some of that seed and throw it into the air. We ask that God will take that seed and “wherever it lands”, will grow faith across this land, like strong trees with deep healthy roots. We place a “Colorado Prays” card in the ground, crying out for more intercessors to rise up for our country and state.

Then, we pour water and oil over our offerings, signifying Jesus being the living water, and asking for more anointing of Holy Spirit. Finally, we take communion together and put the elements into the ground. This is a sacred time at His feet as we remember the price He paid for us, His bride. We call this “taking communion with the land”.

We consecrate all of this to the Lord and close with prayer. In His presence is Holy ground.

Our final offering is singing and praising God with music. I bring my guitar and we share this sealing of our time together by honoring Him with shofars and songs!

What a beautiful day we have had in Broomfield. As we headed to our next county we would travel over mountaintops again, and are reminded of Isaiah 52:7: “How beautiful and delightful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace, who brings good news of good things. Who announces salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Please accept our offerings, Oh Lord our God. We love You!
