I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. 1 Timothy 1:12
Communicate with God . . . a privilege
This year our pastor focuses messages on the Biblical emphasis about Prayer.
When I consider prayer, the first verse that comes to mind is James 5:16 b. All of the verses that I memorized as a boy were from the King James translation of the Bible. "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." Or as stated in The Message translation, this verse reads, "The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with."
So, it sounds like a good idea to live right with God. I certainly think so.
"Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:16
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." Matthew 7:7
Prayer is not only about us but how we interact with others. We are encouraged to pray for others.
"First of all, then, I urge that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made in behalf of all people," 1 Timothy 2:1
Then of course a song sung in bygone days, SWEET HOUR of PRAYER
Two ministries in Nepal are blessed with your gifts. Fresh water systems, disaster relief, radio program development and distribution for local FM and international short-wave broadcasting, training programs and much more.
I am asking you to pray with me about the invitation to travel this Fall of 2021 as the coronavirus slowly winds down and the staff is gathering in Burtibang, Nepal to expand their ministry. Property is obtained and the request is for some design planning for a conference center and training facility. Following is some information about the request. As I shared this opportunity with a friend she said it sounds like a legacy thing. I guess I must in all humbleness agree. Thanks ahead for prayers as we seek the LORD's will in this. Financing our involvement is a big part of our trusting God as we seek to follow His leading these days.
1 Timothy 1:12 is a life verse that led to our creating Reaching People far from God
