From the Pastor’s Desk
Maybe you have seen the advertisements for Awakening Prayer coming in July. Well, I wanted to encourage and challenge us to be a part of this ministry movement. As we consider coming together in prayer, there will be multiple facets in which each of us can participate. You will see invitations and explanations from different members of Kingswood over the next few weeks and months. Here are some foundational Scriptures for us, as we respond to God’s call to pray.
6 “I will also bless the foreigners who commit
themselves to the Lord,
who serve him and love his name, who worship him and do not desecrate the
Sabbath day of rest, and who hold fast to my covenant. 7 I will bring them to my holy mountain of
Jerusalem and will fill them with joy in my house of
prayer. I will accept their burnt offerings and
sacrifices, because my Temple will be called a house
of prayer for all nations.
4 Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! 5 Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 2:1-4
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.
I am convinced, and convicted, that our first and most important action to accomplish the vision we believe God has given us, “Every young per-son in Kingswood’s neighborhood secure, con-nected, and thriving!”, is to PRAY. So, my invita-tion is that you consider joining together at King-swood, and we may possibly have a Zoom group, one of three possible times on Wednesdays start-ing Wednesday July 8th. Please look at the Awak-ening Prayer item elsewhere in this newsletter for more information. I look forward to praying with you all!
In Christ’s Grace,
Pastor Bill Case
