TODAY’S PRAYER TARGET
PRAYER TARGET: MAY 2019
A Letter from the FEBC President
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (1 Timothy 2:1-2).
In his letter to Timothy, the young pastor in Ephesus, Paul offers good counsel on how to lead the congregation well. Before anything else, Paul instructs Timothy to offer prayer and intercession with thanksgiving. Paul knows from experience the impact prayer and thanksgiving have on both the person praying and the person for whom they are praying. As the passage continues, he explains that these prayers are intended for everyone, including those in positions of authority.
Paul recognizes the gift we receive when we are able to live our lives peacefully and quietly, following God, and freely sharing with others the Good News of God’s love for them.
How grateful we are for you and for your partnership in the work of the Great Commission. Thank you for joining us through your petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving. It’s a joy to serve with you by sharing the Gospel around the world.”
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
