The Worldwide Waves Of Praise is one of the many projects of The Miracles Of Jesus Ministry. This is a real and tangible way to put Christ back in Christmas!
During the Christmas season of 2010, Patty Thomas, Founder, watched dozens of youtube videos of flash mobs in the malls and other places. As she listened she joined in with the singing and praising of God along with them. Before long, she was lifted into the Spirit, and filled with His Joy.
“Lord! This is a move of God!”
“Yes, Patty. I want you to start a new movement.”
Patty was flabbergasted, as she was already working on a huge list of books and projects for the ministry.
“If people can stop what they are doing at midnight on New Year’s Eve to say ‘happy new year,’ they can stop at 3pm on Christmas Day to give ME the Glory, Honor and Praise. Santa claus has gotten all the credit. “
With Christmas only a few days away, Patty started searching for email addresses of churches, missions organizations, evangelists, radio and tv stations across the world.
We are now in the 6th year of the worldwide “Waves Of Praise” movement. In 2013, people in over 120 countries participated. In 2014, people from 193 countries formed the “waves.” For all five years from 2010 to 2014, a total of $300 had been spent. That’s God! In 2015, we have reached people in 205 countries so far while still getting the word out to others.
This is the RIGHT thing to do! He Deserves our time, attention, praise and worship every day. Christmas is not the day Yeshua (Jesus) Was Born. He Was Born in the Spring, around the time of the Passover. The Spring is the only time that lambs are birthed. Where were the shepherds? In their fields watching over their sheep. Why were they watching? The sheep were giving birth. Who Is The Lord? He Is The Lamb of God!
For all 6 of these years, Patty has been without a formal home, but has worked on this movement from coffee shops to libraries, motels and more. Having dedicated her life to the service of God, Patty is deeply committed to doing whatever The Lord Requires. During this time, 12 books have been published, 6 years of the Waves of Praise movement, 2 prayer movements for the human trafficking surrounding the Super Bowl and across the world, and a book and prayer movement for the Sochi Olympics were held. Patty has many other books and projects underway for The Lord. She says,
“We must learn to press in towards the mark of the high calling of Christ Jesus, no matter what our circumstances. I am so humbled about this movement, and take it very seriously. The things I’ve had to learn about walking with Christ, I now teach to countless others across the globe.”
A former Controller and Management Consultant, Patty has been utilizing her training and experience in various facets of the ministry. She has tried to remain as invisible as possible.
This movement is all about Him. It’s a tangible way of putting Christ back in Christmas. Most people are unaware of the meanings of the pagan customs so routinely celebrated even today. The Lord Is our Light and our Salvation. We’re taking back the night, and teaching our families and friends to honor Him and worship Him. What better day than Christmas?
It’s a new and annual tradition, but even more. Patty believes it is a forerunner of the whole earth praising The Lord in His Second Coming. Most people are participating in their own homes. They’re inviting friends and families, gathering musical instruments and lyrics. In some countries, small churches are opening their doors and inviting people to come and praise The Lord. However you choose to participate, there’s only one thing we ask: please, no santa claus songs!
This movement isn’t just a “good idea.” It’s a “God Idea!” O, come, let us adore Him!
