Working for Revival in the Church and City Transformation
Since God instituted the family and established His divine order for marriage and family life, healthy family is meant by God to be one of the pillars of a strong and healthy society. Pray for God to establish strong families in San Antonio, according to the Biblical model.
The knowledge of God and His ways is the basis of all learning and God instituted the family as the first and primary place of education (Deut 6:6-9)
The Arts and Entertainment industry can appeal to a most impressionable part of our emotions and souls. If its source is not Biblical but devilish, it warps the soul, thinking, attitudes and behavior and in today's world can even influence and change the culture. But when this industry is motivated by the Spirit of God, it can positively feed oru spirit and will guide our attitudes and behavior into Godly ways.
"God says to me that your (San Antonio's) gift is missions in the nations. Hollywood is coming to San Antonio. Movie studios will be built here; God is going to raise up your finest young men and women from your churches to start making film, television programs, communication; that God is going to use San Antonio to take the airwaves. You're either gonna have the good or the bad; it just depends on how you pray. But God wants it to be a righteous root, the Lord showed me that God wants to use San Antonio. I see that there are going to be studios built here; they're going to come and buy large pieces of land and God wants our children to take the airwaves back. The Lord showed me this and that God wants to use you to be the head and not the tail; God is going to use your in a very unique way to establish His Word."
Pray that the Lord would raise up and establish "Apostles of Industry" for the Business sector of our city. Men and women of God with a Biblical wordview who:

The news media is the primary source for the distribution of city information, as a result, it impacts the thoughts, and by extension, the behavior of San Antonio residents.
As San Antonio continues to grow with people coming from around the nation and from many nations in the world, many other religions are being practiced in the city as well. As the salt and the light and God's servants on the earth, the Church must actively engage the culture of the city with the culture of the Kingdom to bring God's life, revival and transformation.
