Let Your Requests Be Made Known to God
Most of what you see at Bethlehem can happen without that special, supernatural grace; common grace is enough to account for preaching, teaching, singing, evangelism, and missions. But that is not why we exist, as Prayer Week proclaims.
We Exist to Do Things That Can’t Be Done without God’s Special, Supernatural Grace
Pastor: We don’t exist to preach; we exist to preach in the power of the Holy Spirit. Children and young people are supernaturally converted, built up in faith and love. Everything we want to accomplish as a church would be impossible without God’s special, supernatural action. Prayer week demonstrates that God acts in response to prayer. God has designed, ordained, planned, and promised that he will act for us.
God Will Complete His Saving Purposes By Prayer!
God will see that there are praying churches, that the word may “speed on and be honored,” and it is my hope and prayer that we will be one of them.
