September has been exciting and challenging. We have seen God at work and want to thank you for your partnership in prayer.
We take your prayer partnership seriously. Paul told the Romans that they were his co-laborers as he called them to “strive together” (together-agonize) with him in their prayers.
“….strive together with me in your prayer…” (Rom 15.30)
Last Sunday, at FBC Roanoke, the hand of God was on the service. My heart was over-flowing as people responded to the message and knelt at the front to pray. It was clear that God was at work—I know you prayed.
This has been a special week meeting with friends and co-workers in Tennessee. Most of the week has been in Nashville but yesterday I visited the campus of Union University (Jackson, TN) and talked about how God is moving in Memphis, Jackson and Nashville, TN. Pray for my colleague (Shane Critzer) who will be speaking on campus today and tomorrow.
Today I will be with the National SBC African-American Fellowship and then hurry back to ATL to meet Katy as she arrives from the Middle East tonight.
Please pray for this weekend. I am going to FBC North Spartanburg to spend Friday night and Saturday morning with their church leaders. Their pastor (Mike Hamlet) has asked me to spend a few hours helping church leaders seek God together and pray for personal revival. We will be looking at what the Scripture says about Hungering and Thirsting for God.
Preparing for this time has been weighty! Will you pray for us?
” …you help us by your prayers. …
many will give thanks on our behalf
for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.”
