A LETTER FROM THE FEBC PRESIDENT
“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed” (Mark 1:35).
As Mark describes in this passage, Jesus was very intentional about prayer and spending time alone with the Father. Prayer was so important to Him, that not only did Jesus teach His disciples how to pray (Matthew 6:9-13), He demonstrated by His own actions that prayer is the foundation of a relationship with God.
When we follow Jesus’ example and “get alone with God,” we open our hearts to hearing the voice of the Lord. We make ourselves available so that God can reveal to us the world as He sees it, and we are filled with the Lord’s own compassion toward people who have yet to receive Him.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to prayer. We know that God hears the prayers of His people as we join together in bringing our requests to Him. Let us pray that God will move among the nations, bringing life and hope to people as they receive the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
President and CEO
