January 30 – February 28
When the apostle Paul was preaching about Jesus in the Greek city of Corinth in the first century he faced a great degree of persecution and threats. One night in a vision the Lord said to him,
Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent, for I am with you, and no one will attack you to harm you, for I have many in this city who are my people.Acts 18:9-10
These people were chosen by God before the foundation of the world to be part of God’s family. How will God awaken them? He has ordained prayer and preaching as the means of this awakening.
We will be once again joining with other churches across Katy and West Houston to pray for the people of our city. For 30 days from January 30-February 28 we’re invited to pray and fast for a particular set of people, by name, for God to work in their lives. I can’t think of a better time to pray for the deliverance of minds and hearts from the clutches of the evil one and his schemes. People are held captive by fear and bitterness and despair. Let’s awaken West Houston from these dangers.
