Keep praying for your family members!
Pray for the people who live in the community that you live and work in.
Idea: Pray that you would live out Ephesians 5:1-2 as you engage with others in your community:
Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Tonight about 80 youth group leaders will be at Woodlands for a volunteer training. Will you pray for their time tonight? It is an important night of planning, equipping, and brainstorming for the ministry year ahead. Pray for the Holy Spirit to be working in their hearts and minds as they dream and get excited about the ministry year ahead!
This comes directly from the 7th edition of Operation World.
"Answers to Prayer: The increase in the number of Muslim Background Believers (MBBs). The hatred and violence of the Islamist extremists most likely contribute to many Muslims' disillusion and greater openness to the gospel. While there are pockets of particularly momentous change, the inflow of Muslims into the kingdom of God is indeed happening through much of the Muslim world, albeit under the radar and on a modest level in many areas. Dreams and visions from the Lord, combined with encounters with Scripture and demonstrations of God's love, play a large role in many of these testimonies. Other major factors include specific and sustained intercession for the Muslim world, increased efforts to reach them, more sensitive cultural approaches and the widespread use of media - satellite television programmes, radio and film/video. The impact of the Internet in communicating the gospel, leading Muslims to faith in Jesus and discipling new believers cannot be overstated."
Praise God for the way He works in and through us! Continue to pray for those missionaries working and witnessing to the truth about Jesus in Muslim countries.
As a new school year kicks off, we're also kicking off GroupLife season here at Woodlands. Would you be praying for those people who attend Woodlands and yet are still unconnected to the community here - pray that they would seek to connect into this body of believers and that we, as a church, would have eyes to see those unconnected and reach out?
In practical terms, GroupLife Connect is kicking off this Sunday. This event is where the classes and groups for the fall semester will be available and congregants can sign up. Pray that this would be a great starting step into connection for those seeking it.
