Father in Heaven,
We love You Jesus! We give You all praise! Thank You for thinking of everything! You place unique gifts within each of us. You then prepare us and teach us how to coordinate our gifts in unison!
Praise You Lord! You don’t merely provide fish for us to eat! You give us the ability and creative freedom to catch fish for ourselves! In our work for You, we discover a fulfilling joy in striving for excellence in Your name. All so that we can (do) for others, and bind ourselves in love and harmony to You!
When we grow, we glorify God. By taking the spiritual gifts You have blessed us with, and strive for excellence in them, we validate the care You put into selecting the “gifts of serving” You chose specific to each of us. Lord, in our earthly definition of care, we see this point:
“serious attention or consideration applied to doing something correctly or to avoid damage or risk.”
If we don’t strive to do something correctly we are ignoring the care You put into building us for a purpose. May our talents unify us, connect the unconnected to You, all to glorify You!
So let us do our best! Let us not be just proud enough to put our name on it, let us be so proud of our work in You, we want Your name it! So let us strive for excellence! Let us strive because we want You to be glorified!
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Now all glory to God our Father forever and ever! Amen.” Philippians 4:19-20 NLT
We pray for the 29,893 people who have yet to connect into a gospel church in this county. We pray for all who are connected with New Life Church and First Assembly in Gillette, May this community feel the presence of the Lord through their actions. May God continue to expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
The time to seek His care has come. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
