Dear 3RG Church Family,
I spent time praying for you this morning. I thank God that I’m part of this body of believers, and I care for each of you as my brothers and sisters in Christ.
The church directory is a great resource! I have been using it as a prayer guide, along with our membership list. As I turned through the pages, I thought of each one of you and prayed for God’s hand to be upon your life. I thought of specific trials you’ve experienced and prayed for God to bring comfort. I thought of specific joys and blessings you’ve experienced and prayed that those blessings would overflow for the benefit of others.
Most of all, I prayed for you to have a passion for God. I hope that in every dark and difficult season as well as in every joyous season, you will rest in the arms of our Almighty God.
In Ephesians 3 we find a good model of how to pray for ourselves and others. I resonate with Paul’s words here and want to ask God to do these very things among us. Will you join me in praying this way?
“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:14–19, ESV)
Praying for you and with you . . .
Your pastor, friend, brother in Christ,
