TIDINGS OF GRACE
"Whom have I in heaven but thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the Strength of my heart, and my Portion forever."
Dear Church Family,
Last month I encouraged all of us to
be willing and available prayer warriors, and I would hope that we would
endeavor by God’s grace to pursue prayer as a practice and a disposition of our
lives. And I do want to form a specific
intercessory prayer group within our church to be available to pray for special
requests and situations. When the
applications are ready, we will distribute them to you.
As school is starting back next week,
please pray for teachers, students, staff, and for our community. Lori Cargile publishes a specific prayer list
every year that gives us a number of specific requests. When that is ready, please take one and use
it in your daily prayer times.
And God has mercifully answered
prayers for Pastor Andrew Brunson, held as a political prisoner in Turkey for
two years. He has been released from the
horrible prison where he was being held, and he is under house arrest at his
home in Turkey until his trial in October.
His family will be able to visit him. Please continue to pray for his
Charles A. Whitney
