TODAY’S PRAYER TARGET
PRAYER TARGET: JANUARY 2019
A Letter from the FEBC President
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6).
Throughout scripture there are numerous places where the Lord encourages and instructs us to bring our requests to Him. Our magnificent God, for whom nothing is too great and to whom nothing is unknown, wants us to purposefully bring our requests to Him. He desires us to set aside the time to talk with Him about all our worries and concerns.
With the daily reports we hear of crises around the world, anxiety can easily threaten to take root in our hearts. Here in his letter to the congregation at Philippi, Paul gives counsel based on his own experience for an antidote to fear and anxiety…“Present your requests to God.” We do not face life on our own. The One who loves us completely and created us to fulfill His purposes walks with us each step of the way.
As we begin this new year, let’s renew our commitment to regularly talk with the Lord, bringing all our requests and concerns to the only One who has the power and authority to answer and meet our needs.
Thank you for your faithful ministry partnership!
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
President and CEO
