Good morning Restoration,
It has brought me great joy this week to both offer prayer and receive prayer as we join together in Good Things Grow Through Prayer. Multiple times throughout the day I have realized (remembered!) ‘someone is praying for me right now!’ I open the sign-up. I smile. I say, ‘thanks God that they are praying for us.’ I keep going with the work God has given me to do. I love the connection I feel by the Holy Spirit in our ceaseless intercession together. Thank you for praying.
Tonight! At 7:30pm over Zoom, we get another chance to “Think Wisely about the Election”. This is part 2 of the conversation we hosted with Navs 20s/30s back in February. We are excited to hear from Kaitlyn Schiess (pronounced Shess, as in ‘chess’), author of The Liturgy of Politics. You can still register for the event, here, and the Zoom link for tonight is here. We invite you and your small group to join us this evening!
Sunday! 168 hours of prayer eventually counts down to 2. We want to close out our week of individual, ceaseless intercession with 2 hours of corporate worship and prayer- TOGETHER!! At 5pm on Sunday, Nov 1, I will celebrate the Eucharist outside at Restoration. You will find us under the big tent or in the lush backyard. Bring a warm coat and hat, people! It’s getting cold. Then at 5:30, we will worship and pray together inside the sanctuary. You can get one of the 23 inside spots, here. Make sure you scroll down to ‘Closing Week of Prayer’ at 5:30pm. We will also broadcast this time of corporate worship and prayer on our YouTube Live Channel. Please subscribe!
Tuesday! Election day. Nov 3. I invite you to celebrate the Eucharist at Restoration at 8am, 12pm, and 7pm, outside. We are all experiencing uncertainty and turmoil. Let’s deliberately step away from the tumult and step towards our Savior. He is our rock and refuge. He is the Lord. He is the King of Kings. “…all things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” Thank God! (Colossians 1:16-17) I hope you can join us for this special opportunity to be nourished by the sacrament of the Eucharist on November 3.
“…we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him…” Colossians 1:9-10a
Praying with you,
