Praying for Our One and the Nation

Posted by Jake Thornhill, Jr. on

Jesus said “As the Father has sent Me so send I you.” We’ve been sent with the glorious gospel, the good news of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ! We’ve been called and commissioned to go into all the world and it begins at home, in the Triad.

As we have launched our “Who’s Your One” emphasis, it is essential that we pray, invite and invest in the lives of others. Many are confused, hurting and don’t understand how much God loves them and the forgiveness that’s available through Him if they’ll turn to Him and trust Him. “Who’s Your One” is not a program but a divine mandate, an eternal reminder to step out by faith and obey God because He loves people more than anything.

If you did not receive a special prayer guide and bookmark on April 28th, please pick one up in the foyer and begin praying daily for at least one person you’ll share the gospel with. Let’s be intentional in turning our everyday conversations into gospel conversations.

May 2nd is National Day of Prayer, a time set aside to pray for our country. Let me ask a few questions. Do you think America is gripped by God or godlessness? Is it united or divided? Is the answer in the White House or the church house? America is a nation that was chosen by God, blessed by God and has prospered because of God. But I’m fearful that we have turned our back on God and we’re reaping the consequences.

On Thursday May 2nd, our prayer room will be available from 11:00am to 1:00pm for everyone who will join us to lift up our leaders, our nation and God’s church in prayer. You are invited to come when you can and leave when you need to. Our pastors will rotate in 30-minute intervals in the prayer room and I would encourage you to join us as we pray for our nation. 

On Friday May 3rd we are hosting a high school prom for exceptional students called the “Rainforest Excursion.” It’s going to be an exciting, unforgettable night and we can still use a few volunteers. If you’re available contact Scott and Barb Greene at .

Thank you for your faithfulness to our Lord and His Kingdom. Let’s be intentional while it’s still day because night is coming. I look forward to seeing you Sunday with a Bible in your hand and a friend by your side.

For the King and His Kingdom,

Pastor Jake
