I can hardly wait...

With so many churches, including The Well, submitting video for the One Prayer effort in June, I've been asking myself what it is that motivated me to want to be a part of this, and indeed what I would like to see emanate from this incredible vision of a united global Church. Here are just a few of my thoughts on the subject:

  • I have always longed to see a church that reflects heaven in it's outlook and approach to loving and reaching people.

  • It is an amazing way to take advantage of technology in spreading the message.

  • It is an opportunity to hear great speakers who have remarkable insight into the Scriptures, that we might otherwise not have had access to.

  • It's an opportunity for me to share something that I believe will add value to the Church through a forum that I would otherwise not have had access to.

  • The global Church will actually be spiritually united in a way that has never happened before

  • I am really thankful to Craig Groeschel, Bobby Gruenewald and their team for putting this together.

  • I pray that God would visit the global Church in a powerful way during the month of June so that we are inspired to continue in our efforts to be One Church.

I'm so excited about this opportunity, I can hardly wait for June to arrive. What are some of your thoughts on the subject of One Prayer?

Joseph, our church "Lifecentre" is participating. I'm so proud of our pastor. Jesus was all about community - one voice, one heart, one body. We're so much more effective that way. But what really excites me is that if we're ALL praying One Prayer - we're a force to be reckoned with. Outsiders need to see us as one and not as a bunch of little satellites with different dogmas. I'm so excited!!!

Hope, I'm thrilled to hear that your church is participating in one prayer. It's such a God idea and I can't wait to see what God does with this offering.
