Reporting for Prayer Duty!

pray-1469735
Dear Precious Saints of MBC,

 

I trust you are doing well and looking forward to the New Year.  
 
We are less than two weeks into the New Year and I want to remind us all again that your prayers serve as the backbone of this ministry. Many have shared how you regularly pray for the Lord's work through this local church.  Nothing warms my heart more than to hear that.   We are thankful for your ministry of intercession.  
 
While we enjoy many blessings from the Lord, we must not forget that we are in a battle. The call to duty has been sent out and reinforcements are needed on the front line.  
 
If you have retired from active prayer duty, I urge you to reenlist. Put on your spiritual armor and report to the all-mighty, all powerful God. Prayer warriors are needed to lift-up the ministry, your pastor, Sunday school teachers, AWANA leaders, the brethren, etc.  
 
As God's soldiers, each of us must dedicate ourselves to ceaseless intercession. The Holy Spirit will remind us of prayer items and guide us as we commune with the Father.  
 
Prayer is hindered when we haven't been faithful, but God is quick to forgive His children, and when we come to Him with a penitent heart, intimacy is restored.  
 
May our heavenly Father guide each of us in our commitment to pray without ceasing. We will all be amazed at the peace we experience, and humbled to see God's hand at work, in and through us as we pray for one another.
 
See you this Sunday,
 
In the light of His glory and grace,
 
Pastor Doug
