A Rest to Encourage.

I hope this email finds you rested and encouraged and that your week is off to a great start as we gather today for our prayer call at 12 pm via Zoom.

In our time today, we will be inspired and guided by Sunday’s final message from our series, “One Another: Living at the Heart of Christian Community,” out of Hebrews 3:7-14, titled “Encourage One Another.” 

We all could use more daily encouragement in all areas of our lives as well as encourage all the many people we encounter daily where we live, work, and play.

And in the spirit of embodying Jesus and how he encouraged us to encourage one another in serving and loving one another, we’ll pray for the following:

🙏 Thanking and praising God for His revealing truth through the Holy Spirit.
🙏 Asking for our hearts to be refined from the hardening influence of sin’s deceitfulness.
🙏 The renewal of our minds from sinful unbelief.
🙏 Seeking reconnection to the rest in Jesus that we all long for.
🙏 Reminding ourselves that we’ve come too far to quit in our Christian journey towards eternal rest with God.

As we lift these requests in prayer, I pray for Ephesians 5:15-20 over each one of our lives, which encourages us to be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. 

May our lives be the song and music of the Lord that puts a new song in the hearts of others to sing thanks and praises unto the Lord.  Whether full of certainty or battling doubts, may we be a people always of great faith, quick to give thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I believe that as we come together in prayerful worship, God will continue moving mightily in our lives and in the lives of those around us to give us the encouragement our hearts most long for, an encouraging rest in Jesus. 

See you at 12 pm on Zoom. Be encouraged!

God bless,
Pastor Alvin & Mallary Brown
