With our annual Day of Prayer one week behind us, I thank God for how many of you came out to pray for the Lord’s blessing on our church in 2016. We didn’t get a hard count, but informal reports from the prayer leaders and turn-out at the evening recap meeting suggests that we had more members involved this year than in previous years. That kind of spiritual growth is tremendously encouraging!

With that goal in view, don’t limit prayer for our church to something you do once a year. Let’s resolve to make 2016 a year where we take the requests we gathered last weekend and keep bringing them before the Lord until he answers. Our Father delights to move in response to the persevering prayers of his children (Luke 11:5-13).The things we need the most in life are never things people can provide. God must provide for us. God will use people, but if unless he provides, we’ll never receive. As the Apostle James warns, “You do not have, because you do not ask.” May that never be said of Kingsway.

Take a look at the 2016 Prayer Points below or print out the attached PDF file and keep it on the refrigerator, in your Bible, or wherever it will remind you to pray. And when you see the Lord begin to answer, tell another member so we can rejoice in God’s faithfulness together.

Matthew Williams grew up attending KingsWay and joined the pastoral staff in 2009. God has blessed him and his wife, Aliza, with three rambunctious boys, Ethan, Micah, and Tyler. Matthew did his undergraduate work at the University of Richmond in chemistry and political science, spent a year at the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College, and is nearly finished with his Masters of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
