Now that you've decided to take part in our book study this year, we are praying for YOU.
"May God guard your heart and mind as you purpose to pray more fervently than ever. May you sense His nearness--that He hears those who cry out to Him. May you be vulnerable in prayer letting God hear not only your praises, but your laments as well. May you discover a new depth in your walk with Christ. May His Word be easy to memorize and carry close in heart. May you above all grow in your affection of Christ. He is the reason we are invited to come without guilt into the presence of God. We are WELCOME! We ask these things at the outset of our study, help us be faithful. Help us to be studious. Help us to be alert. Help us to grow as only You can. In Jesus precious name we pray. Amen."
You will receive a newsletter the first and third Thursday of each month through November. For those of you attending the 2nd Thursday classes at Metro, I will include a recap of Emily's sessions in the second monthly issue.
Notice the Strategic Memory Verse at the top. Each month we will work on memorizing a specific verse to help us pray more effectively. These are optional, but highly encouraged to do so for your benefit and the benefit of those for whom you're praying.
We have set up a private Facebook page to give us a place to connect by sharing what God is showing us. I have already added you to the group, unless you are not on Facebook. Feel free to share what God is showing you as well as prayer requests as we move through this book. It will be beneficial to all of us to hear from each other on a regular basis. We will only get as much out of this book, as we are willing to invest our time and attention to it.
For now, read the first two sections of the book titled, This Means War and Opening In Prayer. This will gear you up for the first strategy beginning February 1st.
*We invite you to share your prayer from Proverbs on our Facebook page, so we can agree with you the prayer you prayed.
