As we prepare on the first day of Week 3 the focus this week is Intercession. Our goal is extraordinary prayer. In our reading today we see the words of Jonathan Edwards when he says, “When God wants to accomplish something special in a church, extraordinary prayer usually precedes it.” (59)
We are asked to choose five of the different prayer challenges found on pages 61–62 and consider reading a book on prayer as well. Can I challenge you as a brother in Christ, and as your pastor, let us make this a week of prayer like no other in the life of East Leesville Baptist Church. May we determine this evening how we are going to pray tomorrow. We are challenged in the devotional to spend an hour in prayer each day. I want to add an additional challenge some of you may wish to use one of the days this week. Take an hour and pray through our online Member Directory. You need a login to view the directory. If you need help contact us in the office. The directory can be found here http://www.elbchurch.org/directory/
May God grant us greater urgency and burden to pray for one another. Please feel free to share any prayer requests you have with me and with one another. I look forward to what God is going to show us in our time with Him this week.
