119 Hours of Prayer

a Biblical thought...
Then Joseph woke up. He did exactly what God's angel commanded in the dream: He married Mary. But he did not consummate the marriage until she had the baby. He named the baby Jesus. (Matthew 1:24-25)

a Book thought...
It is important that churches acknowledge suffering and engage it - never, ever presenting the picture that if you follow Jesus, your problems will go away. Following Jesus may bring on problems you never imagined. (p170 Bell)
a Dave thought...
Last night at Box Hill 119 Hours of Prayer was launched. This great initiative from the prayer team involved gathering a cross section of people of all ages from the whole corps for a one hour service that had the band, songsters and contemporary group all present to begin the next 119 hours of prayer. The next 5 days of continuous prayer lead up to the start of ACC on Tuesday 30th September at 7.30pm.

As part of the gathering Jay Lomer shared from the word from 2 Chronicles 7:14-16 and encouraged us with the following insights: 1. We are called as God's people 2.We must be willing to move 3. God chose us and His house is consecrated. He challenged us all to look ahead rather than behind and suggested when your memories are greater that your dreams you are already beginning to die. Thanks Jay & Jode for your passion for prayer it has certainly taught me a lot, I am certainly with you both and pray that this time once again too will bring Glory to God.

Just a thought.
