Pray for Our Church Day 21

June 21

Read Ps. 68:5, 6; 25:16; Matt. 25:35-40; 2 Cor. 12:9; Phil. 4:19

Today I lift up our Agape ministry. Let us be a real family to all new arrivals, to those who long for a spiritual home. Show us ways to include everyone and to minister with grace. Stir up practical ideas in us that show Your love and care. Watch over Jeannie as she ministers, as she shepherds as she pastors. Give her personally and her family strength, courage and rest.

“We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all. Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results. We don’t want to wait for God to resolve matters in his good time because his idea of ‘good time’ is seldom in sync with our.”  Oswald Chambers
