We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.” ~ Oswald Chambers
I want to encourage you to sign up for the prayer vigil that is less than two weeks away. CLICK HERE to sign up for a prayer shift or two. At this transition in the life of our church body it is essential that we lift our eyes to the author and perfecter of our faith and be in prayer together.
The search committee has been working diligently over these past four months, but they have a deep rooted conviction that they need the Holy Spirit’s direction and work in this process. One scripture that they have been holding onto thrughout this whole process comes from Psalm 127: Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.
We desire this prayer vigil to be a time that is set apart where we seek the Lord’s direction, protection, provision, and covering for our church family.
Will you participate in this essential gathering of prayer?
Here are the prayer vigil details again:
From 8:30 a.m. on October 20 through 8:30 a.m. on October 21, please join our church family in praying for the unity and mission of our church, our rector search process, the individual that the Spirit is leading to be our rector, and other needs of our church family. Sign up for one or more half-hour shifts. You can pray wherever you are, but the sanctuary will be open and available from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on October 20 for those who wish to pray there. Please sign up at the information table or online here. Contact Liz Harbaugh with questions
Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication to you; and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will be in the midst of them: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting. Amen.
May the peace of Jesus be with you,
