Next Prayer Meeting: January 19
7 pm, room 105
In Judges 7, to confront the Midianites, God distilled the number of Israelite fighting men from 32,000 to 300. That's right: God told Gideon to whittle down his army to less than 1% of its orginal fighting strength. It's one of the most amazing non-military victories in the Bible.
What can God do with 300 people? More than we can ask or imagine.
As Rick and Mary transition out of Grace, it is up to us to pray and ask the Lord deliver a person who will be the right person to lead us into the next phase of Grace.
We began Grace with prayer. Prayer will always be a part of our future.
We want YOU to join the Thundrous Three Hundred.
People dedicated to praying, learning to pray, and asking the Father to bring us a Shepherd who was born to lead us.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO? Simple. Agree to the following:
✔️ I will pray regularly, specifically, fervently, and humbly that God will provide the Successor for pastor Rick.
✔️ I will pray for the successful operation and guidence of the pastoral search team
✔️ I will gather with others as often as I can to pray for the Successor and Succession process. In particular at least one of the monthly prayer gatherings.
Ready? What are you waiting for?
What kind of pastor should you be asking the Father to provide?
