Prayer Update October 7, 2016

“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever.” (Psalm 107:1).

Thanksgiving weekend is a fitting time to express our gratitude to the Lord for His great goodness.  Linda and I have experienced His grace personally and also in the ministry at Heritage College and Seminary.

Last weekend, Linda had a wonderful time speaking at a women’s retreat.  I also sensed the Lord’s enablement as I spoke in chapel on “Praying Jesus’ Way” (Matthew 6:9-15). Heritage students are excited about the upcoming Thanksgiving break; many will be headed home to be with their families.

Here are some prayer requests for this coming week:

  1. Pray for students as they head home to be with family and friends for Thanksgiving.  Pray for meaningful connections and sharing of what they are learning at Heritage this year.
  1. gccheThis past week we’ve had leaders from seven churches on campus as part of our Graduate Certificate in Church Health and Evangelism initiative.  This is a two-year program designed for established churches that long to see greater spiritual vitality in the congregation and greater gospel impact in the community.  Please pray for these leaders as they seek to implement the things they are learning.
  1. carsonNext Thursday, October 13th, we are hosting our annual Preaching Lectures.  This year Dr. Don Carson will be speaking on Preaching Apocalyptic Passages of Scripture (like Revelation).  Over 450 folks have signed up so far.  Pray for Dr. Carson to be physically and spiritually strengthened for this important day of teaching.  Also pray for Linda as she leads special sessions for Ministry Wives on this day.  Registration is still open for the Preaching Lectures, but sign up soon if you are interested.

Thank you for being part of our prayer team.  It means a great deal to us!
