TODAY’S PRAYER TARGET
PRAYER TARGET: OCTOBER 2018
A Letter from the FEBC President
“My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek.” Psalm 27:8
In Psalm 27, David states that his one request of the Lord is to spend his life in God’s presence, gazing upon the beauty of the Lord. Amazingly, with all of the challenges and losses David faced at different points in his life, and with everything he could be asking of the Lord, David says his first priority is to dwell in God’s presence…to have face-to-face interaction with Him.
As we spend time in God’s presence, the Lord reorders our priorities and revives our souls. As we gaze upon the beauty of the Lord, our hearts increasingly beat in rhythm with the heart of the Father. We find joy in those things that bring the Father joy and experience grief over those things that grieve the Father. This is the Spirit of God at work in us, forming us into a clearer reflection of the image of God.
May we all join in David’s declaration, “Your face, Lord, I will seek,” as together we bring our requests before Him and give honor to His holy name.
Until all have heard,
