"Come to me, all you that labour, and are burdened, and I will refresh you. Take up my yoke upon you, and learn of me, because I am meek, and humble of heart: and you shall find rest to your souls. For my yoke is sweet and my burden light." (Matt. 11:28-30)
A ministry of love. (1 Cor. 13:4-5)
Final Day of Prayer for Families
We wish to thank all of those who participated in the 9 Days of Prayer for Families to kick off the New Year. Many families, of course, are suffering at this time.
But most of all, we honour and thank Jesus our Lord, for hearing our prayers. As Scripture declares,
"In my distress I called upon the LORD;
I cried to my God for help.
From His temple He heard my voice,
and my cry for His help
reached His ears." (Psalm 18:6)
He doesn't just hear our prayers, however: He answers those who have faith:
"Then the earth shook and quaked..." (v. 7) God does something when we cry out to Him from the heart.
So, we want to invite anyone who has received answers to their prayers, witnessed miracles, signs or wonders already to please let us know, so that we can share with the rest of those that prayed and give glory to His Name! Sharing what He does for us builds others' faith.
For those who have not yet seen the manifestation of their prayers: we continue to stand in agreement with you (Matt. 18:19) for your breakthrough, especially on God's promise in Acts 16:31:
"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house."
We believe! We wait in expectation for the salvation and healing of our loved ones. Let us not lose hope, but in faith continually pray, as Padre Pio said:
God made us family,
We need one another,
We love one another,
We forgive another,
We play together,
We worship together,
Together we use God's Word,
Together we grow in Christ,
Together we love all men,
Together we serve our God,
Together we hope for Heaven.
These are our hopes and ideals
Help us to attain them, O God,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
And in this New Year and beyond, for you and your families we pray:
"The Lord bless thee, and keep thee.
The Lord shew his face to thee, and have mercy on thee.
