| Hope Weekly Remembers the 500…
Hope comes in many ways to people in our region, but the greatest hope of all is to know God’s love through Jesus Christ. During the message series “REACH” at Gun Lake Community Church, we all had the opportunity to write down names that we wanted to come into relationship with Jesus. The total number of names written down was right about five hundred. Five hundred neighbors, friends, family members, or co-workers who have not yet experienced the hope that comes from knowing that they are forgiven, set free, and eternally loved by their Heavenly Father through His Son. Hope Weekly asks you to remember the five hundred in your prayers, but more than that, be light and joy and encouragement and life to those around you in Jesus’ name! You never know when you might be rubbing shoulders with one of them.
Prayer Walking Delton brings Hope…
This past Monday evening ten followers of Jesus followed Him out into the community of Delton to bless the community and pray for any needs that came up. Here is some of what happened:
- A team encountered a young couple that was restoring and renovating their own home while also redoing a home across the street to sell. Because of their efforts, others were improving their own homes in the immediate neighborhood. The young couple was excited but also stressed out because of the amount of work. They were so happy to receive prayer for the sale of the house and God’s favor on their own hard work.
- Another team entered Family Fare Grocery Store and encountered several people who had prayer requests that were prayed over. One even waited patiently watching a person get prayed over and when the prayer finished said “What about me? I need prayer too.” God kept bringing divine encounters throughout the night through all of the teams involved.
- Several teams prayed over the businesses in Delton and asked God for favor in having good businesses open in vacant buildings. The neighborhoods were also walked blessing each home and church that was encountered as well as the schools.
We are people of hope! Whether through prayer or sharing the good news of God’s love through Jesus, let us be eager to share hope all around the Gun Lake Region. Join in on the fun!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!” Romans 15:13
