Let's pray!

Here is a portion of a note I sent some of our church leaders yesterday:

---

Acts 1:14 NLT
They all met together and were constantly united in prayer, along with Mary the mother of Jesus, several other women, and the brothers of Jesus.


That is a powerful verse. It is vital that we get on our knees in private and in public. You (our church) will be called on this Sunday during the invitation to pray and lead our people to pray. We must do this.

The future is so bright. The blessings of God are evident. Our vision is strong and will change lives by God's grace. Yet Satan is working overtime. Therefore we can't and must not move out from under the will and hand of God.

My prayer is that will get so desperate for God in the next four weeks that can't miss God and will never be the same. Then our community will be changed, broken lives will begin to be rebuilt, hundreds of people will find in Jesus and all of this because some God's people chose to pray.

Do you hear my heart? The Community Dream Center is on my heart like never before, yet I'm not willing to move away from God just to do something.

Let's seek God. We must. Lead others to do the same.

----
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.  But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.  Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

It is time to pray and believe that God can and will answer.  He is generous.  He wants to change lives, and God wants to use you and me to help others find God.  This is a time God will use.  Are we prepared to be used by God?  Are you spending time in prayer and allowing God to change you?

Let's time!  It's time to seek and trust God!
