Moms in Prayer
Our multi-school Moms in Prayer Group will start meeting again (after the Christmas break) this week on Tuesday, January 8th . We meet at Janet Grove’s home every Tuesday, during the school year, at 8:30am. If you would like to come and check out our time of prayer for our kids and their schools you are very welcome to join us. Please contact Rebecca Andrews (970)391-9101 or Janet Grove if you have any questions.
We follow a “four steps of prayer” guideline during our hour of praying together: Praise- praising God for a specific attribute that he blesses us with, Confession- a silent confession time to bring our repentant hearts to the Lord, Thanksgiving- a time to praise God for all the blessings and answered prayers he lavishes on us, and Intercession- where we chose one child, one teacher, and any school concerns to pray over and then another mom also prays over our child.
It truly is an encouraging time of lifting up our concerns for our kiddos to
God, who we know loves us and wants His best for us and our children. We
would love for anyone interested to come and pray with us.
5x5x5 Reading Plan
Need a reading plan for the new year? The Discipleship Journal has created a simple reading plan that is called the 5x5x5 plan. 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week, 5 ways to dig deeper. I thought it would be fun and helpful to try to do this plan together, for the sake of mutual encouragement and consistency in God’s word.
Each day a video will be posted on the blog of me going through the text and trying my best to keep it around the 5 min mark. Again, this is meant to be a help to you given how full our days can be. The hope is to build a desire to spend more time in God’s word each day, and to build the habit of faithful Bible reading.
The video can be found on the blog, on the app or website in the Media section, or even through our podcast. A PDF of the plan can be downloaded here.
Pray for Ethan Bonnell
Please pray for Ethan Bonnell as he recovers from surgery to his knee. Pray he recovers quickly and that the surgery is effective in healing his sports injury.
