30 Days of Prayer
by Monty Watson on April 12th, 2011

The Great Commission of Jesus Christ is the clear mandate for every Christian church. What Jesus said more than 2,000 years ago echoes into our day as well. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20). Just before He ascended to His Father, Jesus said, “You shall be My witnesses” (Acts 1:8). Later in the New Testament, the Apostle Paul called all Christians “ambassadors for Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:20). We are the voice of Jesus to our world. That’s a daunting responsibility. And we want to take this responsibility seriously at The Church at Canyon Creek.

Therefore, we are calling the entire church body to join together for 30 days of prayer for the evangelistic initiative of our church. It begins today, April 11, and goes through May 10. During this season of prayer, ask the Lord to show you His will, to give you a burden for the lost, and to anoint our church with His Spirit as share His gospel in our community.

In the prayer guide on our website, there is a Scripture passage for you to consider each day. As you pray through each passage and as the Lord speaks to you, write down your thoughts, impressions, and ideas. At the end of the 30 days, summarize what the Lord has impressed upon you and to forward your thoughts and ideas to Keith Tooley, Missions and Evangelism Pastor, at keith@churchatcanyoncreek.com. At the Council’s May 20-21 retreat, we will consider your thoughts and ideas as we discuss the church’s evangelism initiative for the coming year.

Your involvement is very important. We believe there is power in the entire church praying together and seeking God together. And we believe that the Lord will speak to us, because evangelism is so tender to His heart.

Inviting you to join us in praying for the evangelistic initiative of our church,

Monty
