PRAYER

Blessings to you all. I shared this message on the church’s answering machine this morning on “A Voice of Hope.” I have a request of all of you, I am asking that next week, “Holy Week” on Thursday, in commemoration of Jesus’ prayer to His Father at the garden of Gethsemane we will join together and “Bend a Knee” in prayer at 12:00 noon. Beginning next Thursday, April 9, and every Thursday following, until this corona virus is defeated I am asking that we “Bend a Knee” in prayer. If you are not able to physically do so, just pause at noon on Thursdays and pray. As I shared with you in an earlier email, pray for the brave men & women who are serving so valiantly on the front lines against the covid 19 virus. Prayer is powerful and God is able, so pray for our world and those who have been affected in any way by the corona-virus. Many people are scared and hurting in various ways. May we as God’s children rise up and storm God’s throne room of grace on their behalf. God often waits for His children to ask in earnestness & like any loving father He loves to respond to the requests of His children. 

I will be ringing the church bell at CVZ at noon next Thursday and every Thursday at noon thereafter until this virus is defeated. I will be reaching out to other churches to see if they are willing to participate along with us. If you are willing to participate, I am asking that no matter where you are, whether at work, at home, at the store or anywhere you are on Thursdays at noon, you will “Bend A Knee” in prayer. 

Hebrews 4:16 tells us to “…approach God’s throne of grace with confidence (“boldly” according to the NLT) so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” I am asking you to help pass the word that many others will join with us to seek God’s provision during this time of calamity.
 
God’s Peace 
Pastor Mike
