My friend, Kathy Dunn, attended the World Day of Prayer Monday of last week. It was wonderful to learn about other women and pray. Kathy gave me permission to share the thoughts she wrote last Tuesday.
This morning I had the privilege of meeting with many Christian women in our area for World Day of Prayer. We learned of the needs and ministries to women in countries all around our world. As we separated into 7 different groups gathered all over our sanctuary to pray for specific needs for women groups in each country, I was so humbled as I heard prayers being lifted up aloud in that room. It suddenly dawned on me that WMU groups were meeting all over our country and prayers were being lifted at all these meetings possibly at the same time and what that must sound like to our God and what power there is in those prayers. Scripture says that if Gods people, who are called by His name will humble themselves in prayer, then He will heal our land.
Sunday, FBC Kentwood will host the annual associational Lottie Moon Tea. This has been one of the highlights of Christmas since we started doing this. We will meet at 2:00 and welcome all ladies from three years old to one hundred three years old. I’ve already heard from ladies of various churches who plan to attend. This event is for all ladies. You do not have to be a member of a WMU organization. Having a love of missions and caring about others will make the day meaningful to each of us.
