From the President
May 2015 Prayer Target
Martin Luther once said, “Pray, and let God worry.” This is exactly the point Jesus made when he told his followers,
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom (Luke 12:22-24; 29-32).
Prayer is the best antidote for worry! As we pray, all of the burdens and cares of this life are subsumed by the greatness of the power of God. What have we need of that God cannot supply? What cares do we have that God does not understand? The Christian life is the life lived without fear and worry.
When you pray, then, pray with abandonment, understanding that God will supply everything we need as we seek first His Kingdom. Thank you for praying!
Until all have heard,
