Thanks to those who helped with the Oasis Craft Party
This message was shared with me by our ‘Craft Queen; Krista Schito:
“Thank you everyone who helped cut, sort, count, assemble, measure, fold, and package the craft supplies in preparation for Oasis camp! And thank you to those who took things home to work on, helped with problem-solving and those who prayed for our preparations. It’s amazing to see the MONUMENTAL amount of work that got done in a few hours! What a great team! It was a huge success!! I’m hopeful that the crafts prepared will be lots of fun for the kids during camp week, and also help them remember the Bible lessons they learn each day. Thank you everyone for making it all possible!!”
Wonderful Wednesdays in Prayer @ 7:30 PM
Come join your fellow believers in praying biblical prayers for one another, for our neighbors, and for the City of Guelph. Patrick Thornton is hosting prayer at GBC every Wednesday at 7:30 PM and using Paul’s prayers as a guide for prayer.
Don’t miss out on the privilege of calling upon our Heavenly Father together!
Thought for the day: Steps Towards a Mature Prayer Life- Pray Believing
This has been quite the journey the past few weeks as we’ve looked at moving towards a more mature prayer life. I hope this has been as challenging for you as it has been for me! So, here’s the last thought- when you pray, pray BELIEVING. What do I mean?
To pray believing means to believe in God and that He will work all things out for good. Even if he didn’t answer your prayers, He knows what’s best and we don’t always understand God’s timing.
We can all learn from the man whose son was possessed with demons and when Jesus told him, “Everything is possible for one who believes.” He immediately responded with, ”I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief” (Mark 9:23-25). We too can ask Jesus to help us with our belief.
The man who asked for help with his unbelief is an example to us of how we need to be humble and ask Jesus to help our own unbelief. Ask Jesus to help your heart to believe in Him. When you pray, remember who you are praying to and say out loud, “I believe in you, Jesus.” I hope this will help you experience deeper, richer, prayer this summer and beyond.
In His grip,
