An Encouraging read!
From Deborah Sharpes blog:
Yesterday morning I had the privilege of praying for my church’s Sunday service with several other members of my care group. A couple of the guys from my care group had started praying before the service a couple of weeks ago and encouraged the rest of us to join them. It was such an encouraging time. Not only were we able to lift up the church and the various people who would be serving us that day, but it also helped to prepare our hearts for the message we would hear. I left that time excited to encounter God in the service and anticipating His presence. What a great pleasure it is to join with other saints in prayer for the local church! I feel so honored to be walking along side these people as we strive to live our lives to the glory of God. Thank you all for your constant example of love for the local church!
