“Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he SAWthe crowds, he had COMPASSION on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. ASK the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 10:1 Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and GAVE them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.” “GO I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.” Matthew 9:35-10:1 Luke 10:3
God wants us to SEE all people in our lives the way He sees them. He wants to fill us with such COMPASSION that we ASK for the power that only he can GIVE to love and serve them. He is sending us to GO out to offer His hope and healing that will lead people back to Him. Let’s commit to pray together for God’s glory in our community! Here are five ways that we can pursue this together from now through the end of summer.
EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT at the Waggoner’s (412 W. 3rd St. 6:30-7:30) We will be learning how to pray using a scripture passage each week to call out to God together. Bring your burdens and let’s take them to Him.
