14th Anniversary Celebration Devotional: Day 5

Day 5: EQUIP
Believers

 

You
faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior.

Psalm 65:5a NLT

 

As we approach C3’s 14th Anniversary,
focus your thoughts on prayer. From a small gathering in an elementary school to
our campus today, C3’s story is nothing short of a miracle. But more than that,
it’s the story of answered prayers. Time and time again, this church has called
out to God to help it reach the lost. Some of His answers were clearer than
others, but He answered them all. God leaves no prayer unanswered. Indeed, like
the Psalmist says, He faithfully answers our prayers, and He does so with
awesome deeds. Each of the last 14 years has been filled with nothing less than
awesome deeds. There are stories of salvation, restored marriages, bondages
broken, and person after person giving their time to make a difference for someone else. Our church
is where it is today because of the sacrifices of many.

 

Prayer:

Give praise and glory to
God for the things you’ve seen him do at C3 over the years. Praise him for your
personal involvement. Ask God for forgiveness for the times when you didn’t
think He could answer your prayers, or when you thought your prayers went
unanswered. Thank God for bringing you to C3 and for the person that most
likely invited you to come for the first time. Give thanks for the lives that
have been changed. Pray for God to use you in ways that bring glory to his Kingdom
through the church in the coming years. Pray for support for the leaders of the
church. Then pray that lost people continue to be reached by C3.
