This morning was in-service at SAGU during Fall break. I was reluctant to go because of Sharon’s recovery needs after our car accident, but she insisted… She said, “You need to go! I’ll be OK!” And I’m really glad I attended! It was uplifting to be with old friends and colleagues!
Dr. Paul Brooks, vice president for academics, led a wonderful prayer time and focused on Prayer Station #8 of the Road to Emmaus Prayer Walk at SAGU! This prayer station focuses upon “Open Doors and Effective Ministries.” I commend its prayer focus to you today and urge you to embrace it and make its various aspects your own as you pray today…
“Just pray for us” – The cry of Christ’s ministers everywhere! (In this case an apostle requesting the prayer of God’s people). 1 Thessalonians 5:25, Romans 15:30-31
“That a door for effective ministry of the Word would open wide!” Colossians 4:3, 1 Corinthians 16:9
“That the word of the Lord would spread rapidly and be glorified!” 2 Thessalonians 3:2
“That Christ’s ministries would be delivered from people of ill will!!” 2 Thessalonians 3:2
“That the faith of God’s leaders would not fail!” Luke 22:32
My response? Oh Lord, do it! So many worthy Christ-centered, Gospel focused ministries! So many faithful servants of the Lord seeking to fulfill “The Great Commission” (Matthew 28:18-20)! So many wonderful servants of the Lord depending on our prayers! I made these ministries and ministers my prayer focus today and commend it to you for your fervent, faith-filled prayer!
