We’re asking God to let a Wildfire Process begin in us!
A Wildfire Process produces a “Frest Start”
1. It removes dead & decaying roots that will act as future fuel future fires that would be more deadly, intense, and disastrous
2. It eliminates dense (hard to penetrate) foliage. It enable a NEW generation of seedlings (vision) to grow.
3. Intense Fire and Heat strips nutrients & minerals out of the burning plants, which creates MORE fertile ground for NEW species of plants (Vision)
