What a day yesterday at church!
Great worship. Everything went so well! The singing, the preaching (God did it!) the specials.
At the invitation time, we had 20 something down at the altar praying for our church and our revival which starts tomorrow.
During prayer requests we had people naming lost people and asking us to pray for them, not just one, but several. This shows a genuine concern, which is the desire that every true pastor has for his people.
Sunday evening I shared a portion of the Word of God (a devotion) and then we viewed the movie, "Fireproof" and then we had another devotion after the movie and then an invitation and altar call for the strengthening of marriages in our church and for our continuing revival. We had another 20 something come to the altar who poured their hearts out to the Lord for the lost, the unconcerned and those marriages that are struggling.
Our church is overwhelmed with the burden for the lost and for those church members who are uncommitted and only come to Sunday morning worship!
The naming of names began last Monday evening at a Cottage Prayer Meeting that we had in preparation for our revival services. We had a bout 25 in attendance and we prayed for over an hour and a half. I was exhausted and there was not a dry eye in the house. What a "sweet exhaustion!"
Even if this revival just brings one person closer to the Lord, it will all be worth it!
Praise the Lord!
