The last several years, I’ve proclaimed a "prophetic word" concerning the upcoming year in regards to the local congreation where I serve.
Mostly, it’s been a theme, an idea, a focus that I have believed God wanted to emphasize during that year.
Generally, it’s consisted of a single word.
2007 – Reclamation
2006 – Infiltration
2005 – Awakening
2004 – Proclamation
2003 – Devotion
2002 – Breakthrough.
Each year, I ask God to help us embrace these words throughout our local body. Most of the time, I find that these words come to represent areas of testing, both in my own life and in the church.
