Our Privilege and Delight
I love all the verses that address prayer, especially Philippians:4:6-7: "Be careful [anxious] for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
Here at TBC we believe we need to begin everything with prayer, sustain our endeavors by prayer, and thank the Lord in prayer for His answers. We consider nothing so insignificant that the Lord is not interested or so overwhelming that He cannot handle it. Therefore, we take to heart the Apostle Paul's exhortation that we are to "Pray without ceasing" (1 Thessalonians:5:17).
Each morning the staff gathers for fellowship, prayer, and the study of God's Word, except for Thursday when our focus is on the prayer requests that we receive from those who contact the ministry. That intercession is both our privilege and delight.
We are also gratified that so many of our readers pray for us daily. If you are of a mind and heart to join our prayer support, here are some things we are seeking the Lord's help for: Dave's pending second hip-replacement surgery (his first surgery in November went very well), and his work on his next book, Cosmos, Creator, and Human Destiny; TBC's relocation and possible purchase of a building; guidance and protection in our activities, and that we would continue to be steadfast in the faith and fruitful in ministry.
