Looking to the New Year....
Has the thought of making a few New Year's resolutions flickered across your mind these last few days? I would like to suggest one that promises to satisfy both body and spirit, as well as a meeting with the Master of the Universe, who is in the business of "moving mountains". How would that change your perspective?
The Intercessory Prayer Team gathers each Thursday morning at 9:30 AM in the Prayer Room to pray for our church, our pastors, staff and teachers, and for those whose requests have been voiced. It has been said that "...prayer is the mighty instrument that does the work". Our time together not only allows us to lay our praise and requests before our Father, but we leave that room bonded in a fellowship that strengthens the resolve in our own lives. Matthew 6:6 says, "And when you pray, go into your room, and pray to your Father." I love that the Greek translation for "room" is "treasure room" - a place where one would keep valuables. As we gather together to store up and thank God for His gifts of immeasurable value, our fellowship through prayer and seeking His wisdom permeates our time together.
I would like to invite you to join us. If Jesus considered prayer a priority, something essential for His work, and more importantly His relationship with His Father, we should honor and respect that as well.
Please pray about your involvement as the new year begins. "All continued with one accord in prayer." Acts 1:14
Remember: Thursday mornings at 9:30 AM, upstairs in the Prayer Room in the Christian Life Building. If you have any questions, or if you have a request that we can pray about, please let me know.
