40 Days of Prayer

Yesterday marked the beginning of a 40-day prayer commitment among the family of God at Woodward Park. Together, we have pledged to pray each day, lifting before the throne a united voice.

Families, I hope you are taking advantage of these 40 days to begin a new routine in your home. Turn the TV off, carve out some quiet time as a family, and share your hearts with each other and with God.

As for our church family, last week was about as good as it gets! In every, we witnessed a new birth into Jesus (5 total for the week). Watching God work in response to the pleas of his children is amazing! James wrote, "you do not have because you do not ask" (James 4.3). We are asking God to work, and to show us where and in whom he is working, for the sake of his kingdom in this world.


Today, the greatest answer to prayer God has ever given me celebrates her birthday!

Happy Birthday, Sweetheart. I hope today is a blessed day for you.
