Missions Revival 2014 – 1 Thessalonians 1:4-5 “For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.” Pray once again for our Missions Revival. Pray that it will be well attended and that we’ll have guests at church Saturday and Sunday. Pray for our Faith Promise Offering and that God will give you the heart to give as well. Pray that we will raise the money necessary, not only to continue to support our current missionaries but to have the opportunity to partner with other. (Invite someone to come to church with you either Saturday, March 15 or Sunday, March 16.)
“I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature that I could think of; for to have been born in God’s thought, and then made by God is the dearest, grandest, and most precious thing in all thinking.”
This is a prayer of contentment”
― C.S. Lewis

Our Ministry – 2 Corinthians 5:20 “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us.

Our Heart – Psalm 139:23 “Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!” Pray and give God permission today to search you in deep places. Open your heart completely to Him and trust that He will do what is right in you and He conforms you to the image of His Son. Pray that God will give you His heart and prepare you for revival.

Our Desire – Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Pray that God will fill you with His desires.
