Get Involved: Pray
There are so many ways to be involved in the project. We will be outlining more needs over the next few weeks, but my first challenge is for you to partner with us in prayer. There is no greater task for the Jesus follower than building the Kingdom of God through the power of the Gospel! Please pray that (1) everything related to the mission will be protected from spiritual attack. Ephesians 6:12 says "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." (2) That we will rely on the power of the Holy Spirit and not our own power (Acts 1:8). And (3) that we will eagerly anticipate the great things God has in store for the community of Mountain Grove! I love the statement of the OT leader Joshua before the great miracles of the book. In Joshua 3:5 he says to the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.” I pray we have the faith to look forward to what God is going to do, and that we never forget that the same God who stopped a river and knocked down a wall in the book of Joshua is already going before us and taking down obstacles in Mountain Grove, Missouri.
