Steps to Unleashing the Warrior (Part 2)

My personal journey of becoming a warrior continues with more Steps to Unleashing the Warrior .On day two the Promise Keepers Unleashing the Warrior event began with a similar bang as had the night before. Only this time the men were even more ready to freely give themselves to the spirit and there was a different level of energy and comradery in the room. The first speaker of the day was Bruce Wilkinson,  who has written more than 60 books that have been translated into 30 languages, including several books that reached the number one spot on the bestseller lists of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

Open Heart? Open Mind? Great let’s go! Society is crumbling around us. Marriages are collapsing. Pornography is winning the battle for men’s minds. And our children are abandoning the Church. But there is hope. ~ Promise Keepers Let me set the stage a bit, picture a church, the Titus Harvest Dome in my home town having a line of men of all ages, races, backgrounds and locations chomping at the bit to get in to get their spirits and hearts filled and ultimately to unleash the warrior. Thousands of men from all over with Bibles in hand ready to spend two days opening up the word and breaking down barriers and becoming Promise Keepers and warriors. The doors opened shortly after 5 on Friday allowing the men inside to make their way to their seats for the event that was to start at 6 pm.  When the band took the stage at 6 it was obvious almost immediately that these men were here for a reason and were on a mission.  Imagine the area in front of the stage being filled by men dancing and singing at the top of their lungs to worship songs as […]
