Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12
It is God who arms me with strength, And makes my way perfect. Psalm 18:32
Would you be interested in helping me with this book? If so email email@example.com, a story or two - maybe a paragraph or two - or a page if needed.... answering one or more of these questions: They can be serious, funny or even radical stories of faith. If you send me something, please also indicate your permission for me to use and publish. (I will not use last names only 1st & last initial to keep confidential) so be brutally honest - even if it's hard. I cannot guarantee every story will get in the book, but I will be incorporating as many as I can. The Lord willing!
1. What is one thing you wished you knew when you first became a follower of Jesus Christ.
2. What is something you prayed for that God answered in an unexpected way? (serious or funny or quite radical)
3. What is one thing you wished you never prayed for???
If you could have these stories to me within the next 30-60 days, that would be great. I am inserting them as I write, so sooner vs later.
Thank you so much in advance for those wanting to help the story. I've already received quite a few and am excited to weave this in.
God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted). We will offer 30-50 private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, screened in porches and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord.
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating, health and wellness retreats and more.
The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers. We are not wanting to replace their church, but more help them be ready to serve in their church.
In our community building - we will have a 24/7 (eventually) prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.
Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world. To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas. Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!
-Please pray for Sonlit Fields & our Thursday Night Meetings. Pray God brings who He wants.... teaching, equipping, activating & releasing.
-Please continue to pray that God will bring the provision for the vision.....Sonlit Fields Retreat, Ministry & Equipping Hub. We are estimating a need of $10 million to buy property, land surrounding the property, build & furnish.
-Please pray for daily needs to be met. We are far below our needed income with no ability to find additional work and to earn what we need. Ken is getting a few extra hours as a guy quit recently. Thankful for that.
-Please pray for Ken - he is still part time at Dollar General - it's hard physical work and he is quite exhausted with little energy leftover. Please pray for his health stamina!
-Please pray for my health. The headaches are back. Not sure why... but I am believing and decreeing that I have been healed! My right knee range of motion is getting less and less mobile...hard to get in & out of car, etc.-Please pray for our 2 dogs, both are getting old - Canyon is 14 1/2 & Blazer 12 1/2. Canyon has been losing strength in his hind legs and has been falling quite a bit.. and not eating much. Blazer has a cataract in one eye and is having a hard time seeing things as well as not eating as much. He is losing a lot of weight. For dog lovers you know how hard this is to watch.
and THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR PRAYING. WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE SO MANY COVERING US!
