What’s up Gold Gold community! I am excited to be able to share with you all what has been on my heart lately in hopes that it will encourage and challenge you! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Dillon and good ol’ Joe Dean asked me to fill in for him this week while he spends some special time with his new wife, Sarah.
As I was thinking about what to share with you all, I thought it would only be fitting for us to really pray for Jordan and Sarah’s marriage as they begin this new season of their life together.
“Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; The Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
Prayer is for all seasons of life. In times of happiness, we are to sing praises to the Father. In times of trial, we are told to lift one another up in prayer. How amazing is it that we can live in community with others who intercede to the Father for us.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 calls all believers to be in constant prayer. “Be joyful always, pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Today, I challenge you, along with myself, to put others needs before your own . Through out Jesus’s life we see many examples of him sacrificially serving, loving, and praying for others. I also challenge you to specifically pray for Jordan and Sarah’s marriage. That they would feel a blanket of prayer from the God Gold community!
Pray for their hearts to be woven together, continually encouraging and challenging each other to live on mission wherever they are.
Pray that their marriage would reflect Jesus love for the church. That others would see a picture of the gospel when they see their marriage.
There are so many prayer needs in our community. We know there is much hurt and pain all around us and I encourage you to reach out and ask for prayer from this community. We are all growing and going through this life together. Let’s share our needs and the needs of others so that we can all encourage on another on the mountain top and in the valleys.
