A LETTER FROM THE FEBC PRESIDENT
“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Luke 11:9 NIV
In Luke chapter 11, the Disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. The first example of prayer given in this chapter is what we refer to as “The Lord’s Prayer.” Then to help the Disciples understand more clearly how they were to pray for others, Jesus shared a parable.
In the parable, a guest arrives unexpectedly. The host hurries to his neighbor in the middle of the night to ask for bread to provide for the guest. When the host’s request isn’t initially answered, he boldly continues asking until the need is met. This is a wonderful picture of intercessory prayer…prayer that approaches God on behalf of others, praying boldly and unceasingly, trusting God for the answer.
Thank you for joining us in prayer and interceding on behalf of FEBC and the many listeners around the world who are hearing the message of the Gospel. We are trusting the Lord together.
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
President and CEO
