Colossians 1:11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy
When the power grid goes down we often feel helpless. Our dependence upon electric power is so strong that when it is gone, even for a short time, we feel anxious. God’s power can be like that. When it is not being felt, when it seems lost to a person, we look to have it restored.. Such is the power of the Lord.
Prayer of the Day. Dear Lord. We recognize the power that is with you. We recognize the strength that rests in your words. We recognize the empowering that comes from your words. Being in one mission brings us power on earth. Today we ask for your power to engage us, to fill us up with your holy word, so that we may become one in mission with you. AMEN ... See MoreSee Less
Romans 8:28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose

Prayer of the Day. Fear Father in Heaven. I know that at times I do not work well with others preferring my own voice. I know that at times my own agenda gets in the way of achieving your ministry here on earth. I know that at times my energies may be tied up in being right rather than what you are asking of me. Today I pledge myself to working toward achieving your ministry here on earth. AMEN ... See MoreSee Less
