Call to Prayer for April 2, 2018

‘Alive in Christ – Living for Jesus ‘–  Our voices were raised in praise yesterday as we sang the songs of celebration that our Savior lives and because He lives, we are alive in Christ.  We not only have the hope of living forever in His presence, but we have the privilege and joy of His presence in us today – to know Him and to serve Him.  As the song says – ‘I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today.  I know that He is living, whatever man may say; I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer; and just the time I need Him, He’s always near.  He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today! He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.  He...

‘Alive in Christ – His Breath in Us ‘–  As we continue to prepare our hearts through prayer for the 2018 Georgia Baptist Women Spring Event at Stone Mountain on April 13-14, let’s focus this week on the One who gave us life as He breathed the breath of live into His creation beginning with Adam – ‘then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature’ (Genesis 2:7).  It is impossible for us to live without air in our lungs.  When there is a lack of air, we know how important it is to provide oxygen through a number of medical procedures – we all want to live, and we welcome the...

‘Alive in Christ ‘–  In less than a month, many women from all over Georgia will gather for an exciting weekend of worship, inspiration, and fellowship as we participate in the 2018 Georgia Baptist Women Spring Event at Stone Mountain on April 13-14 (www.gabaptistwomenspringevent.com).  Many hours of planning and preparation have already taken place to ensure that those attending will be encouraged and blessed by the music, missionary speakers, conference leaders, and so much more.  As we approach these last weeks of preparation, we ask you to partner with us in praying each day that all who attend will be prepared to hear God speak clearly and that lives will be...

Call to Prayer for February 19, 2018

‘Love looks like . . . ‘–  We are in the middle of the ‘Love’ month, but to look around us and to watch the news, there seems to be a shortage on love – real, unconditional love – the kind of love explained by Paul in 1 Corinthians 13 – which we often call the love chapter of the Bible. Yes, we do the cards, the flowers, the candy, and even say ‘I love You!’ – but love isn’t something that is expressed one day out of the year – it isn’t something that we put on the calendar – real love can only be expressed and demonstrated out of a heart that loves God and overflows with His Spirit living within us.   When Paul begins to share what real love looks like in 1 Corinthians...

Call to Prayer for January 29, 2018

As we complete this first month of 2018, I’m sure many of us have set goals for the New Year that we might have already decided it’s just not worth our effort or time to continue to pursue – but God doesn’t want us to quit especially if it’s something He’s asked us to do.  We also sometimes give us on our prayers – the following was originally posted on 1/27/2014 and I wanted to share it with you again as we think about continuing what we have started:   ‘Practice makes perfect . . . ‘–  As a young girl taking piano lessons, my teacher would always remind me of the importance of practicing each week between lessons and not to give up even when I became frustrated...
