Here are my prayer requests and praises:
1. Praise! Laina and I are getting more and more comfortable with our new church home at Harvest Bible Chapel. We took a class on Saturday that answered our questions on doctrine, church practices and really what is the heart of Harvest. The answer: Jesus Christ and the word of God!
2. Praise God that I started making some progress on the financial support this week. I am at opproximately 5% of what I need to begin working on campus. Please continue to pray for the Lord's provision. If you are able would you consider supporting me?
3. Thank God for the many prayers of supporters of me and the ministry of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Prayers are being answered.
4. Praise God! The regional director for IVCF forwarded me an email from a former IV student from WMU who is now a professor at Washtenaw Community College. He wants to be involved in starting a chapter at WCC too! God is bringing people together to reach this campus!
5. Pray for the students and staff at WCC to have hearts open to the gospel and that God's favor would be with us as we seek to reach students and staff.
6. Pray for Laina's and my trip to Disney this week. Laina's parents have blessed us with this family get-a-way. It is much needed after these last 5 months of unemployment and support raising with IVCF.
7. Pray for my health. I have a sinus infection. I also had tests at the vestivular center last week. They are trying to figure out what causes my motion sickness when I travel. After travel I am usually laid out for 1 - 2 days. Not fun!
8. Pray that I would grow and mature in Christ and that God leads me into all truth through his word and his Spirit. As a teacher I want to be careful to teach exactly as the Word of God teaches. Teachers are held accountable by the Lord for what they teach (James 3).
9. Pray for Laina's job. Praise for God's provision through it and continued wisdom and strength as she works through stresses of each day.
10. For unity in my family and that all would come to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
By grace through faith in Jesus Christ our we saved and not by our works so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2)
Faith without works is dead. Show me your faith without works and I will show you my faith by what I do. (James)
Heavenly Father, I praise your for your grace and your truth. Teach your sheep to know your voice Lord. Help us to follow close behind you. Don't let us go our own way, but come and find each and every sheep that strays. Forgive us Lord, when we think we know what is best or alter your truth to suit our desires. We are sinners and have been guilty of much. Forgive us by the blood of the Lamb, your Son Jesus Christ. Thank you for the atonement that he granted us by his death on the cross and we look forward to following him in life and in his resurrection. Help us to hear your call to "Go" and make disciples of all nations! (Matthew 28). Lord I pray for all who read this and offer up prayers to you, on my behalf, as well as on behalf of all those who don't even know they need you. Comfort and provide for all of our needs Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
