Greetings on this beautiful Sunday afternoon!
What a blessing to be able to meet for worship whether in person or on line. I trust that you were edified this morning. While we agree together in prayer, it is also important that we don’t forget to assemble together with believers as Hebrews 10:25 reminds us. It is important to be with other believers in worship and prayer. Our own involvement is a witness to others in the same way that others are an encouragement to us.
As the election draws near, I suggest that you focus on it. We are seeking the Lord’s will in every aspect of the election, from our local precincts to the congress and presidency. The Bible clearly teaches us to pray for our leaders.
“First, I tell you to pray for all people, asking God for what they need and being thankful to him. 2 Pray for rulers and for all who have authority so that we can have quiet and peaceful lives full of worship and respect for God.”—1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NCV)
“Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.”—Jeremiah 29:7 (NASB)
“The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes.”—Proverbs 21:1 (NASB)
We are living in absolutely incredible times and it is important for believers to speak into it by the way that we live and interact with the culture, but also to speak into it in prayer; by that I mean that we can assertively speak God’s Word into the world that we see and ask the Lord to accomplish His Word in our midst.
The Lord Jesus bless you abundantly this week,
On behalf of the leadership teams of
Advent Episcopal Church and The Praise Community
