"Thus Samuel grew and the Lord was with him and let known of his words fail."
Young Samuel grew in physical stature, but much more apparent to those around him was his maturing spiritually. While sequestered away from many normal outside distractions, still other things sought out his attention. For most of us, we are bombarded in today's world with many things other than the Lord. Any number of the cares of the world seek to tear us away from the simplicity and purity of devotion to the Lord. While we are reminded by Peter: "but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen." 1 Peter 3:18
"I'm Okay, I'm Good"--Answers we've often heard. At times we come to church burdened, and we go home taking the same burden, rather than asking for prayer. Don't take your burdens home with you today.
Lahaina Rebuild - Prayer for our Sister Churches - We stand in the gap for our fellow Calvary Chapels, many going through things of transition, some even going through pilikia. We stand in a tenuous place, praying for the wellbeing of the church. Don't discount our effectiveness as we pray for God's best for the church family.
River of Life Mission - As the volume of meals and ministry opportunities have ramped up at the River of Life Mission, please keep all the staff and guests, as well as the neighboring community, in prayer.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem - As the Middle East heats up, pray for the nation of Israel along with all of those in this region who have come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
