This series, the Isaiah 55 series of blog posts was written as an ongoing prayer for my church; but it's a prayer for all churches, for all people.

Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David.

People say that the model used to establish our "Shore House of Prayer" is based on David’s tabernacle. And I think that’s a very good thing!
But God didn’t love David because of the tabernacle, the tabernacle was a demonstration of David’s profound love for God. And that love created a party; a 24/7/365 celebration of mutual affection.
That’s something Shore Vineyard seems to be be very good at, living a life of mutual affection. Loving God should be a party!
God is faithful! His love, for me, for us, is everlasting! It never runs out and it’s never withheld.
The culture of Shore Vineyard focuses on developing, fostering and practicing communication with our loving Father.
Lord, it seems as if everything should rest on this foundation of the understanding of mutual love and communication. That’s my prayer prayer for Shore Vineyard; that they would continue to grow in loving you, understanding your insane love for us and how you communicate that to us. You tell us, over and over, in so many ways, how you cherish us, approve of us, revel in us! Help us to always hear you and respond well.
Thank you for being crazy about us!
