September 14, 2017
This week I’d like to get you thinking about one thing – prayer. This is something that has really been on my mind for a long time. It’s something that I want to see our church grow into. I want to see prayer become not just an add on in church, but part of our regular church rhythm, and a vital part of each believers personal life.
So starting this weekend we’re going to focus in on prayer for four Sundays in a row (taking a break on Thanksgiving Sunday) taking ideas from Ephesians 6:10-20. So here’s what the next 5 Sundays look like:
- September 17th: The Power of God; Ephesians 6:10-11
- September 24th: The Reality of Evil; Ephesians 6:12-13
- October 1st: The Armor of God; Ephesians 6:14-17
- October 8th: Thanksgiving Sunday
- October 15th: The need to Yomp it; Ephesians 6:18-20 (and yes you will need to look up that word)
My hope is that you will begin to see the need for prayer in your personal life, your life in community with friends and with family, and as a corporate body. Pastor Lindsay and I have some other things up our sleeves to help us all be thinking about prayer and making prayer a regular part of our lives.
I’d like to remind all the youth parents out there that this Friday is the Youth Kickoff for the new school year. They area meeting at the church at 6:30pm to head out to Circle Square Ranch. It sounds like they are going to have a lot of fun!
Speaking of prayer would you please uphold me in prayer for this Sunday. It really does make a difference. Would you also pray for Rachel Drinnan as she and her team lead worship this week. We are so privileged to have so many talented worship leaders who give of their time. Please pray.
