Sunday, October 5th

We started out our Heritage Revival last night and Rev. Dr. Ed Donnell (pictured above) from Roxboro Presbyterian Church preached the opening sermon. He preached from Deuteronomy 26.1-11. In this sermon he made the case that we must know who we are ---- and who we are is wrapped up in who God is. Many of us come to God with "baggage" and he urged us to leave that sin filled baggage and live into the call God has for us. A call that involves being a child of God. It was a wonderful time of revival and I felt a burden lifted off of me as I went to the altar and left my baggage. I wanted to say thank you to Rev. Donnell and the Roxboro Presbyterian choir for coming and sharing the gifts that the great giver of all gifts has trusted them with. Below you will see a list of ways you can pray during the rest of the revival and I would encourage you to pray these daily.

Prayers for Revival

1)Pray for the Holy Spirit to come and renew your heart to seek after God in all that you say and all that you do.
2)Pray to God that during this time you will grow deeper in your commitment to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
3)Pray for your neighbors. Pray that they will come to the saving knowledge that Jesus is their Lord and Savior.
4)Pray for the ministers that are coming to preach. Pray that God will put a word in their mouth that will help us grow in our faith.
5)Pray for unity at Warren's Grove as we strive to live into the vision that God has for us. Also, pray for God to open doors for us to build the building that God has called us to build, as we expand our ministries so we can share the good news of Jesus Christ with all people.
