Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4:6).
As I write to invite you to pray for some specific requests related to the ministry of Heritage College and Seminary, I want to begin by expressing my thanksgiving to God.
I’m thankful for His faithful provision and protection over the years. I’m thankful for the privilege of serving Christ through training faithful servants for Christ, His Church and His mission in the world. I’m also thankful for you! It’s a great help to have friends who support this ministry in prayer!
Here are several requests to bring to the Lord this Thanksgiving weekend.
1 I’m currently preaching a series of messages in chapel related to God’s original intent for men and women. With all the confusion and commotion related to gender identity in our world (and in the church!), my desire is to help our students come to a biblically-based understanding of who they are as men and women. Pray for the impact of this series. By the way, we’ve uploaded the chapel sermons on our website here.
2 Heritage is currently interviewing for several key staff and faculty positions: a Director of Marketing and a Vice President of Academics. Would you ask the Lord to help us to select the right person for each of these important roles?
3 Pray for our students as they return home for this Thanksgiving weekend. For some of them, this will be their first time home since the semester began. Pray for safety of travel and a meaningful reconnection with family and church family.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
