Join Us In Prayer September 2020



September 2020

Then God said, “Let lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night.
Let them be signs to mark the seasons, days, and years.”
Genesis 1:14

There’s something about being on the cusp of autumn that makes me think more deeply of the changing of the seasons.  Maybe it’s knowing that we’re headed toward shorter days or barren trees, or maybe it’s because it represents the final march toward the end of another year.  Whatever the reason, I am always reminded that each season, each day, each year, is intentional.  That it is, in fact, the Father’s design.  Now in September of this 20th year of the 21st century, at a time when many can hardly wait for this year and all it has held to be behind us, I’m lingering.  I don’t want to forget what we’ve learned during the pandemic.  I don’t want to forget the miracles the Father has performed in the midst of sorrow and pain.  And, to be honest, I don’t want to forget the blessings of COVID-19.

May this month find you marking the season – grateful for the gifts, celebrating the blessings, and committed to overcoming the difficulties…

You led your people along that road like a flock of sheep, with Moses and Aaron as their shepherds.
