The National Day of Prayer was yesterday and we had a great Concert of Prayer service at the Deer Run Church of Christ in South Bend, Indiana.
While I love special prayer times and days, it is practicing a life of prayer that really gets me excited. Next week, May 5-10, I will be in the Louisiana gulf coast region to pray. God has given me the opportunity to join with a friend of mine to spend a week praying in the greater New Orleans area of Louisiana.
Our goal is to listen to God and follow His lead in the conversation He has with us. Our desire is to encourage Christians in their efforts of physical and spiritual rebuilding taking place in the region. We will spend time praying in the communities of the region, on the campus of the University of New Orleans, and with the ministry of Operation Feed My Sheep.
If you are currently in the gulf coast area south of New Orleans and would like to join together sometime the week of May 5 – 10 for prayer, let me know.
If you would be willing to partner in prayer with my friend and I as we take this Prayer Journey, I have developed a prayer guide to help people know how to pray for us. You can download a .pdf file of it at this link: New Orleans area Prayer Journey Prayer Guide.
If this type of prayer involvement interests you, I am also planning a similiar Prayer Journey in the Salt Lake City area of Utah for June 23-28. Contact me for more information if you are interested.
