Today's plan is:
One worship service at 10:00 a.m. (Help in the preschool??)
Dinner (lunch) on the grounds immediately afterwards.
How to pray:
First and foremost.... that lives will be changed forever because of Him.
That real worship will take place in each of our lives.
For John as he preaches his last sermon as our senior pastor.... As he walks in and out the doors.. 20 years is a long time. Allow him to be sad and yet excited for tomorrow for our local church body and for the one he is going to...
For Judy and the girls...... as a wife, daughters, friends, and ......... 20 years is a long time.
For our body.... that we will show John, Judy and the girls the love that they deserve and also be willing to listen to what God has laid upon John's heart to share. That we will embrace this time of change to grow as a body of believers.... and as individuals.
For those who are coming today because the pastor of the largest church in our town is leaving after 20 years. John is known on the streets.... in Wal-Mart... and in the highly secure gated communities. May they come away with wanting to know Him.
That God will truly be worshipped... given the glory..... and that lives will never be the same.
