PRAYER: THE KEY TO THE MISSION
Prayer is the key to the success of all our mission endeavors, for unless the Lord goes before us to prepare the way, our way will be very difficult. And, indeed, unless the Lord is within each of us, controlling us, our way is the wrong way.
The Urbancrest Global Impact Celebration is fast approaching, (March 16 – 20, 2011) Our Prayer Vigil this weekend is the essential element not only to the days of the event, but also to the days of preparation before the GIC and the days that follow as we take the Good News of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth.
Our GIC Prayer Leader, Todd Tolliver writes;
“We pray that our Lord would grant travel mercies to the many missionaries who come, some from great distances to meet here at Urbancrest. In the past, Many specific requests for prayer were made and God moved his hand each time. I would ask that you prayerfully consider joining with our Church Body in praying for the GIC once again this year. The 24 Hour Prayer Vigil will take place from 6:00 pm Friday, February 18th to 6:00 pm Saturday, February 19th. Thank you for your continued support of the GIC and praying for great things to be accomplished during this time that will bring our Lord Glory.”
Please come to the church and spend as much time as you want praying for each missionary that is participating in GIC this year. Each has sent us their specific prayer request for their ministries. We also ask that you pray for those UBC servants who work to organize and work to carry out this great event. Consider this Prayer:
Holy Father, bless this Global Impact Celebration. Let every promise of Your Word be abundant in our lives as we prepare to fulfill your call to our Jerusalem, (Lebanon), our Judea, (Ohio,) our Samaria, (the USA) and to “go to the ends of the earth.”
“Continue to seek God, but go beyond seeking him, expect
and when He comes in power, yield to Him. Martin Lloyd Jones
