Julia is at Disney World for Fall Break.
When is my Fall Break? How can I go to Florida for a week for FREE?
Tennis updates: Jennifer has decided to be a beast at the net. Jessie can now hit a one-handed forehand. I have a huge bruise on my thigh from getting tagged with an overhead on Saturday morning…weekend warrior.
LSU Tigers are #1 in the nation.
Jennifer’s dad, Gramps the Great, is #1 is the nation (out of 80,000+ contestants) on ESPN College Football Challenge. I am ranked 25,422. He is ranked #1.
I don’t even want to talk about the Mississippi Mullets. Fantasy Football is stupid and a waste of time. Our time is better spent in fasting and prayer.
My message yesterday was A Call to Pray. Simple but challenging.
I like what Leonard Ravenhill says about prayer,
Preaching affects men; prayer affects God.
Preaching affects time; prayer affects eternity.
I am personally trying to pray more and pray better. I pray that our church will be a praying church. I need to be a praying pastor.
Here are a few (Is 4 more than a few?) prayer initiatives:
1. Day of Prayer and Fasting on Wednesday, October 12. Here are 3 previous posts on fasting: Tuesday- Day of Prayer and Fasting, The Purpose of Fasting, and Only By Prayer and Fasting.
2. Join the Prayer Team: firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Prayer Service, Wednesday, October 12 at 7:00PM
4. Graystone Prayer Wall: (
24 hours a day on the Graystone Prayer Wall, you can post prayer requests and pray for up to the minute prayer requests. Also, every day at 1:14 PM (Joel 1:14), everyone is encouraged to stop what you are doing, and say a short prayer for the specific POTD (Pray of the Day). You can find the POTD on the Prayer Wall.
“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:19-20
BTW, KATB did a great job leading worship yesterday, and I could sense God’s spirit moving. It seemed like more people were really singing out and “getting lost” in worship. I really think Graystone is growing spiritually…ON FIRE…AWAKENING!
I loved seeing so many people in both services kneeling at the altar and crying out to God in prayer. Cast all our anxieties on Him bc He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7).
I cannot wait to see what God does through PKS (Project Kids Space). Let’s pray that He does “immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine (Eph. 3:20).” The goals are Bronze ($40k), Silver ($75k), and Gold ($100k).
I wonder what “immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine” is? The Platinum goal? Or the Diamond?
PS…What is up with the Braves?
