One of the most important items you can have in your possession as a member of Trinity Baptist Church is the insert that you will find in this newsletter. Each week our Family Care ministry, led by Pastor Allen Rash and Bro. Doug Guy, along with the ladies in the church office, takes on the responsibility of updating the prayer list for our church. The need is always different and unique. On some weeks there are just a few folks that have specific needs and are added to our list for prayer, while on other weeks there are dozens of names and requests that come in to the office.
As a part of the body of Christ, one of our main functions is to pray for one another. It is vital that we be intentional about looking to see who is asking for prayer. Think of that, now. Someone called or text, asking, requesting, and expecting that the church family will pray for them. That is a gigantic responsibility and a task of great importance! I know if my name was added to one of the categories found on the prayer list, I would want you to pray for me.
It’s a great practice to purposely place the prayer list insert into your Bible and incorporate praying over these names, with clean hands and a pure heart, as part of your daily walk with the Lord.
James 5:16, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
There are many on the list who are sick in body, broken in spirit and some that are tremendously grieved. Let us take time to remember our brothers and sisters as we obey the call of Christ to His church.
Let us pray!
