Latest Prayer Target
Today’s Prayer Request:
A LETTER FROM THE FEBC PRESIDENT
January is the month of new beginnings… a time to look forward to the new year.
We may not know what’s ahead, but we need not fear. We can look with joy and anticipation for what is to come simply because God knows what lies in our future. Isaiah writes:
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.… To give drink to My people, My chosen, the people I formed for Myself that they may proclaim My praise.” (Isaiah 43:18–21)
When Isaiah wrote this Scripture, he was looking beyond the Babylonian captivity of Judah, still a hundred years in his future. There, Isaiah saw Babylon’s power shattered and Israel winning its freedom (Isa. 45–46). God knew what was ahead and it was good news! God and his people win!
So, my faithful prayer partners, because of this assurance that God knows what lies ahead, we can pray in faith for the good things He will accomplish this year.
May the Lord overwhelm you with His presence, joy and strength in 2020!
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
