I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.-Philippians 1:3-11
Tonight my church gathered together to pray, as we’ve been doing for every Wednesday this month. One of the primary principles of church is our belief in prayer. There is so much going on right now in our body we are really taking time to pray. There are 3 of us preparing for a short time mission trip, and a family getting ready to pack up and move to Africa. Prayer is crucial in every aspect of our lives. We are still looking for a building, and praying for the town of Angier. We are seeking the discernment that Paul prayed that the church at Philippi might grown in. I can say with all my being that my prayer is that of Paul’s in Philippians 1. If we continue to pray and stand firm on the word of God, then we shall continue to be in partnership of the gospel. We send our petitions on behalf of a little area between Wake, Johnson, and Harrnet counties, and the nations. I pray that God uses GraceWay to go out into the harvest, and that we keep our heart of prayer. Always giving thanks to God for one another and his everlasting grace and mercy.
