From Steve Hawthorne--
In these crazy days I want to urge you to continue praying with full-hearted confidence that God will act in the midst of our communities and families in ways that glorify His Son.
The only way I’ve seen people live and pray in such confidence is when their hope is shaped by God’s word and fixated on the life-giving power of the risen Son of God.
Without the word of God our prayers usually shrink to become what one pastor called, “fix-it” prayers. Too easily we are focused on our needs and we are defined by what we fear. Instead, that same pastor found that having his people pray through Seek God for the City helped them pray what he called, “fulfill-it” prayers, focused on what God has promised to do.
So let’s pray with the Scriptures. Let’s help each other stand and thrive in the truth of the Word of God. Let’s pray what God has promised with a sustained faith.
Seek God for the City 2013 is packed with newly written prayers designed to help ordinary people grow in hope. Look over a review copy and pray two or three of these prayers. Consider how these prayers can encourage people in your church or network of friends.
We still have some review copies for pastors and prayer leaders. Ordering is easy on our website (www.waymakers.org), or call us (800-264-5214) to learn about bulk discounts and how to help people from different congregations pray together in sustainable ways.
