Prayer For REVIVAL in America

SCRIPTURE

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

Philippians 2:13, NLT

QUOTE

Grace will not suffer a vacuum, any more than nature.

COMMENTARY

Paul prayed for the Thessalonians asking God to enable them to live a life worthy of His calling, giving them the power to accomplish all the good things their faith prompted them to do. “If you do this,” Paul said,  “the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.” The process of sanctification demands our obedience. God doesn’t do it without us and we can’t do it without Him. He demands our obedience but we cannot obey a part from the working of His grace. It is God who gives us the desire and the power to please Him. Amazing grace, who can explain it? I certainly cannot but one thing I know, Tis grace has brought me safe thus far and His grace will lead home.

EXTRA

  • A heartfelt THANKS to all. The visitation for James Kyle’s family was overwhelming and then the meal yesterday was out of this world. It was a table fit for a king. Thank you one and all. You make me proud. Wayne Penn had the time of his life. I have never met anyone who loves to eat as much as Wayne. Mandy and team get an A+. I know that Christine and Gerry helped, along with TLC, Alias Betty R, Floyd, Sandy Dandy and Jennifer. I am sure I left someone out, I always do.
  • Service went good: Tyler Jolly was superb on sound and video. Doug was outstanding as always. The Josh Grogan Video was moving. Wayne did very good on the opening and Joe David connected big time. It was a really good service. Unique, but that is the way it should have been.  
  • Our MISSION OFFERING Sunday provided us with enough money to do the 12 houses. Mandy has already mailed the money to GRACE MINISTRIES. Our mission team will be leaving Huntsville International Sunday morning September 15 at 6:30 am. and we return late the following Saturday.
  • The Summer is flying by and I should care but I don’t. It wouldn’t hurt my feelings to see a light frost, anything to slow this grass down. Our garden is literally run a way, it is a jungle.
  • I need to meet with nominating committee tonight after church.
