Encounter Evening with Peter Robertson

Intimate prophetic worship on the theme of Grace & Hope

Encounter Evening Report

The Encounter Evening with Peter Robertson on October 20th 2013 was a precious time in God’s presence. Peter Robertson from Australia joined Ray Watson and the Encounter Team for an evening of intimate prophetic worship. The theme of grace and hope formed the focus for the evening as people experienced deep soaking worship.

Peter Robertson started the evening with one of his songs titled “Let me know your grace”. This song opened the meeting and expressed our desire to the Lord to know Him more and His extravagant grace we are called to walk in. This song then provided the springboard from which free praise and other spontaneous songs developed.

Throughout the evening people were encouraged to wander and look at the prophetic art displayed. Much of the prophetic art was around the theme of grace and hope and provided a form of ministry for people. People were free to express themselves in worship through any creative form, including prophetic art, dance, soaking and meditation. There was also an area for communion that allowed people to reflect and take communion either personally or as a group throughout the night.

An aid for personal devotion and meditation was provided through a hand-out of scriptures based around the theme of hope and grace. These verses were also often used as the framework from which prophetic songs of the Lord were sung. The scriptures provided both Ray and Peter an outlet to explore creatively and prophetically the theme of grace and hope.

A wide variety of prophetic songs on grace and hope were sung throughout the evening. Some were strong prophetic declarations, and others were more gentle and intimate soaking music. Interludes of instrumental music were sprinkled throughout. These instrumental sections provided people the opportunity for soaking and reflecting on the prophetic atmosphere created through the music.

Near the end of the evening, Ray started the prophetic phrase “let’s hold on to our confession. Let’s hold on to our faith. He is faithful. He has promised.” This phrase was developed creatively by the musicians and built to a strong declaration of our faith and trust being placed securely in Him.

The evening ended with a moment of stillness in His Presence as Peter gently played on his guitar providing an intimate place of encounter for people. The meeting then closed with both Peter and Ray giving a brief exhortation and providing an opportunity for people to receive ministry.
