Thank You from the World Network of Prayer

Have you paused recently to consider all that you have to be thankful for? It is important for each of us to make a habit of taking time to consider all the blessings God has bestowed upon each of us.

We each have gifts and abilities, and we each have experiences and knowledge that enable us to make a unique contribution in our families, churches, communities and world. Together we share an awesome responsibility and opportunity. We have the ability to impact the whole world with our prayers.
There have been terrorist attacks in several locations and the impending threat of many more from ISIS and others. But may I borrow wisdom from Elisha in 2 Kings 6:16?  “And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.”  A more modern translation says “Don’t be afraid! There are more on our side than on theirs!”  During this time, let your heart be at peace and focus on what is for us. For we know, “If God be for us, who can be against us!!!”

Here in the United States it is our Thanksgiving season. I want to take this opportunity to say I am so thankful for the blessings of God on the World Network of Prayer and I am thankful for each of you. Thank you for your burden for prayer and for all you do to make WNOP a success.

Blessings to you and yours,
