An Invitation to Pray

October 6, 2015

by Pastor David J. Jebaratnam

The Elders and Pastors at Midland Free made a commitment to pray for 30 people/families during the 30 days of September. You may have received an email or phone call asking for specific prayer requests or just a note letting you know that one of your leaders had prayed for you.

God desires to hear our prayers. Philippians 1: 4 says, Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. As God so often does, He blesses the one who is praying as well as the person for whom the prayers are being lifted in intercession.

The individuals for whom I prayed during these 30 days played a key role in revitalizing my prayer life and I want to thank you for that. There were times when I went to sleep with not having anyone to pray for on the next day. But when I woke up the next day to pray, I had one of your emails. In this way, the Lord stretched my faith a few times. Praise be to the Lord, He has provided a person or family to pray for on each day. And you have been an important part of that process as the Lord taught me new lessons.

Now, as I mentioned at church a few weeks ago, I invite you to generate your own list of 30 people/families and pray during the month of October. The people/families you pray for can be members of your family or friends, colleagues at work, neighbors, people at church, etc. They can be Christians or non-Christians. It doesn’t matter who you pray for; rather our desire is that you pray. Would you join the Elders and Pastors and others at church who would be taking up this challenge to pray for 30 people/families during the month of October? Would you join and be instrumental in creating a Movement of Prayer at our church?

Thank you in advance for your favorable consideration of this invitation! With much appreciation for you,

Pastor David

  1. Thank you Pastors and Elders for leading us so well! Father, let it go deep into our hearts that all you are – you are to us! Would you hear and answer each and every prayer according to your Covenant, written on our hearts. May we know and believe that if you were willing to shed your blood for this New Covenant, how much more will you fulfill its promises having been raised from the dead and now seated at the right hand of the Father! Amazing grace! We can now share in the inheritance of Christ and enjoy a permanent, unbroken relationship with You! May we never take that for granted. In Jesus name, Amen.
