Call to Prayer for December 18, 2017

As we prepare for Christmas 2017, I wanted to share again the posts related to the weeks of Advent that were shared last year as a reminder of why we celebrate Christmas (the following was originally posted as our Call to Prayer for 12_19_2016) ‘Preparing for Christmas’ (thoughts shared by Daphne Youngblood, support staff for Georgia WMU/WEM) – The fourth week of Advent is about “Peace.” First, let me ask you what you think about when you hear the word peace? Define peace in your own words. Do you think about the lack of peace in your own life or heart? What does the world say peace is? Is the peace from heaven different from the peace in this world? Where does peace...

Call to Prayer for May 29, 2017

‘Fruit of the Spirit is …Peace’ (thoughts and picture to remind us of the peace we have in Christ and gratitude to men and women fighting for our freedoms shared by Karen Pace, Consultant for Georgia WMU/WEM) Today, we remember the brave and courageous men and women who have died while serving this country through the armed forces.  These men and women have sworn by oath that they will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies . . . and bear true faith and allegiance to the same and do so without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion . . . so help them God.  The very fact that we need them in place makes evident the lack of...

‘Fruit of the Spirit is … Peace’ (thoughts shared by Patsy Pirkle, past president of Georgia WMU) – The common belief is that peace is the absence of conflict, either internal or external.  We long for peace in our world, in our families, in our very soul.  I recently read that 1 in 9 Americans, an estimated 36 million, have begun practicing yoga.  That is an 80% increase in the past 5 years!  With chaos all around us, we look for tranquility and serenity because we don’t have the power to control people or circumstances.  Good news!  Jesus said in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give you.  Let not...

‘Fruit of the Spirit is …Peace’ (thoughts shared by Marni Laughman, daughter-in-love of Mary Laughman and wife of Steve Laughman, Associational Missionary of Centennial Baptist Association) – Peace… What comes to mind? A white sandy beach… foamy waves tickling your fresh pedicure… the salty breeze giving your hair just the right texture for dinner with your loves… Or maybe… sitting cozy in a wooden rocker wrapped in an oversized blanket… the cabin porch overlooking a rolling river… and the smoking chimney is your only footprint for miles… Serenity. Calm. Intentional Shabbat. Peace. Let me give you a perfect example of peace… sore knees from hours of petitioning Abba...

‘Fruit of the Spirit is …Peace’ (thoughts and picture of The Garden of Gethsemane located on the Mount of Olives on a hill overlooking the walls of Old Jerusalem shared by Daphne Youngblood, Support Staff for Georgia WMU/WEM) – Everyone has a deep yearning to find meaning, value and peace in life.  We were created in the image of God and were designed to be in harmony with all of creation and have an intimate relationship with our Father. When sin entered the picture with Adam and Eve, our relationship with God was severed.  Some say that there are many ways to the creator, but the truth is that God would not have sent His son to be our perfect sacrifice and die an...
