Greetings Church Family,
Wow! February already. I am so excited about this year as we prepare to become the church that becomes a "City Taking" church. As God taps each one of us on the shoulder to move away from the church inside the building to becoming the church outside the building, pray the following prayer with me: (
Taken from 40 days of Prayer - Breathing Healing and Hope into Your Church.
I lay down pride and logic today.
I lay down the need to be right.
I lay down the "knowing."
I lay down the familiar and safe.
I lay down "figuring it all out."
I give up my righto be offended.
I bask in the beauty and Glory of You.
I hold dear to the Cross.
I plead the Blood of the Lamb over every soul wound, hurt and pain.
I let go of pleasing man.
I surrender fairness.
I collapse at the foot of my Maker.
I cling to the Sword of the Spirit.
I hold fast to the meditation of His Word.
I stay centered in the Voice of Truth.
I lay down prominence, fame, position and notoriety and pick up death to self, suffering for His name, and selflessness.
I'll go where you ask and do what You say.
I've been called, equipped, crowned, graced, favored, anointed, and commissioned as His son/daughter with a call.
I will rest in His Love daily.
I won't back down, quit, complain, or cease the mission until He comes back for me!
With that prayed, I say to you my beloved FCN family...
Charge Ahead Soldier!
Blessings on all y'all,
