Pray BFF#44 June 2, 2003
Dear Prayer Team,
Our van is home from the repair shop! We are thankful that the brakes work, the steering is repaired , and the body looks like new. Only we noticed that the van vibrates and trembles when any demand is put on the engine. Should I accept this as normal? No. In fact, in a few minutes I plan to call the car shop to see what must be done about it.
As I thought about this situation, I realized that many of us have tolerated a wobble in our own Christian lives. We know it is not normal, but we can't figure a way to solve the problem and just stop growing in that area. Whenever we are convicted and excited by the Lord, we are like my van when it speeds up. But we are instantly reminded from the 'vibration' that something is not normal. Every time we attempt to move forward in our Christian lives, we have to slow down again.
BFF specializes in creating "victory" materials. We identify these wobbles and then train others how to eliminate them. Whether it be fears, lusts, anger, worries, dullness, lying, problems in marriages, difficulty raising children, wrong doctrine, sexual hangups, lack of spiritual disciplines, etc, we have brought the power of God's truth to the lives of God's people.
As long as we tolerate a little sin in our lives, then we will not experience the power of God. We know that when the going gets rough, we will run into these problems again and again. Many Christians don't know the power of God in their lives. May we zealously pray for revival in general but also specifically for those that go to the website. 475 people visited the website on June 1st. May they really encounter the Lord Himself.
5, 3,2,1 BFF Prayers
I have been praying for 5,3,2,1 lately. If you forget all other prayer requests, just remember 5,3,2,1.
I try not to let the small start trouble me. After all, my name 'Paul' means little. God specializes in using a little to produce much, that He would be glorified ( ie: small mustard seed). We only need to persevere in faith and prayer. God will accomplish His great purposes by His strength.
We need your prayers!
