Prayer is vital to the people of God fulfilling the ministry of God whether the ministry is in New Albany or North Africa. Intimacy with God guides us to the people He wants us to serve and the places He wants us to go – individually and corporately. Prayer connects us to the heart of God and increases our awareness of the physical and spiritual needs in the world. Prayer also helps us determine the ways we can be used to meet those needs for the purpose of making Him known. Ministry partners depend on us to pray for them as well as the needs of their ministries. Each ministry and each mission trip has unique needs and goals and we should be diligent in our support and prayer. Which ministry partners will you commit to pray for on a regular basis?
Not only should we give and pray, we should also serve. Our willingness to give of our time allows God to use us to be His hands and His feet to those who are lost and hurting. He wants us to serve others and to share the hope that is found in Jesus Christ. Our ministry partnerships need people who are willing to serve and engage those God has entrusted to them. Each ministry has unique needs and God has gifted and equipped His people in unique ways so that we can help meet those needs. How has He gifted and equipped you and are you willing to use those gifts to serve Him and to serve others?
As believers we are commanded to GO into our community, our city, our nation, and our world with the Good News of Jesus Christ. The possibilities and ways we can do this are unlimited. We are prayerfully and continuously seeking out opportunities for all ages to engage and to go into the world whether it is near or far. Is it possible for Graceland Baptist to have ministry partnerships in every continent of the world? Anything is possible with God and when we give, pray, serve, and go.” Where will we go to make Him known? Indiana? South Dakota? The ends of the earth?
