Special Invitation to Prayer
General Conference 2019
 

YOU ARE INVITED TO PRAY FOR GOD'S GRACE AND GUIDANCE FOR THE UNITED METHODIST GENERAL CONFERENCE (FEB 23-25, ST. LOUIS).  WE ARE HAVING SPECIAL MORNING AND EVENING PRAYER MEETINGS THIS WEDNESDAY, FEB. 6:
8:00 A.M. IN THE CHURCH OFFICE
6:10 PM.   IN SANDERS HALL
 
In addition to these two prayer services, you are invited to join us each Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. for intercessory prayer and to pray daily for the Holy Spirit's guidance for God's church.
 
Here is a prayer from Thomas Merton for a time of decision:
 
PRAYER: NO IDEA WHERE I AM GOING Thomas Merton  
My LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me and you will never leave me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone. Amen.
