Please Pray for the Elders' Retreat

In about fifteen minutes or so, the elders of Glory of Christ Fellowship will be heading off to the Timber Bay Retreat Center near Lake Mil Lacs in central Minnesota. The plan is to spend this afternoon and evening together, and then most of the day tomorrow, praying, visioning, and planning for the 2013 ministry year.

Please pray for us. It is among the easiest things in the world to say, "Let's go that way," but "that way" may not be God's way. We desperately need to be desperate for God and his wisdom, so please pray:

(1) That our hearts will be eager and humble and teachable before the Lord.

(2) That we will listen well to one another, hearing one another's hearts and not just the words.

(3) That we will discern the Lord's specific direction for GCF for 2013 and have wisdom to articulate that in accurate, understandable, and compelling ways.

(4) That we will be bold to lead as God has called us to lead, and to serve as God has called us to serve.

Thank you so much for your partnership in prayer!
