“Prayer isn’t about requesting what you need to build your kingdom, but about seeking the grace you need to live for God’s kingdom.” – Paul David Tripp
Admit it, you will not be sad to see 2020 in your rearview mirror! It’s been a year to remember. The 366 days of this year (we got an extra day because of a leap year) have revealed much about ourselves, our systems, our government, our church, and most importantly, our God. While everything else has been turned upside down and changed, God is consistent and constant. He never changes. He stays the same. Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.
As we are on the doorstep of a new year with new opportunities, empowered with new mercies, how does God want to use you for his kingdom? Maybe you will host and lead that small group you’ve been thinking about. Maybe your heart is drawn to helping preschoolers see the big picture of the Bible. Perhaps God has been impressing on you to volunteer at one of our campuses. You live in Lakeville and God is whispering for you to join the Lakeville Campus. You’ve always wanted to serve on a short-term mission team - could this be your year? This could be the year you start and complete a Bible reading plan. The possibilities are endless because God is always working and on the move.
As we end this prayer journey together, let’s continue to pray for God to position us individually and collectively for what he has in store for us in 2021. We are one day closer to having a new lead pastor. We are one day closer to worshipping eternally at the feet of King Jesus. So let’s embrace the changing of the calendar to the calling God has for us.
- Pray for God to position you specifically to do his will in 2021.
- Pray for Berean and ask God to use his church mightily for his purposes in 2021.
"Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it" (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 ESV).
