“Prayer becomes an exercise of highest love when you forget about your own needs and sins, take up the cares and sorrows of other people, and lay them on the heart of God.” -Benjamin Palmer
We had the privilege of speaking at and attending a prayer meeting in Tacoma last night. What an amazing encouragement to see multiple generations of a church gathered together, sharing their hearts and praying. Not just a quick prayer at the beginning and the end but a good long amount of devoted time where requests were listed up to God in unity of spirit. Ryan and I were well received and enjoyed hearing some of the ministry connections that we unknowingly shared with this congregation. One of the connections is with David and Barbara Cross who worked with the same Brookton church in the 1970s. It’s sweet to see how God is connecting us through the generations.
We believe that prayer is foundational for our ministry and it is also our covering going out. Because of this, we were thankful to have an evening with fellow believers to be lifted up in prayer and also to join in praying for many others in the Seattle area, around our nation and around the world.
