And we are off …
We broke ground for our new education building last Sunday. It was a wonderful evening or prayer, fellowship and celebration with delicious Handel’s ice cream.
Psalm 127:1-5 (ESV) 1 Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. 2 It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep. 3 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
I wanted to list the specific petitions that we prayed corporately so you that you might continue to pray individually.
