This morning our HTC staff and students are worshipping our Lord through prayer. They are giving thanks to God for protecting them, for providing for them and for allowing HTC to be able to come back to full operations after the Covid quarantine. As they gather together they are sharing their personal stories of deliverance and focusing on Genesis 8: 15-22.
In Genesis 8, Noah, his family and every living creature that was with them during the days of the flood are invited by God to leave the ark. The first thing they do is worship God and give thanks.
God smells the pleasant aroma of their sacrifice and blesses them with a promise.
Today, may our prayers thank God for sustaining us during these days of trials and unknowns. He is the one who saves us, provides for us and gives us His peace. And as we thank Him together with our Haitian brothers and sisters may our prayers be a pleasing aroma to Him.
As we tune into the daily news, there seems to be a growing number of giants appearing. In 1 Samuel 17 the Bible tells us that as the Israelites battled their enemy every day, the giant Goliath would stir up fear. His size, his threats, and the possibility of losing everything they loved terrified them.
But with one small stone Goliath was brought down. David knew where victory would come from and he proclaimed, “I come against you in the name of the Almighty God!”
As we pray and fast together with our brothers and sisters in Haiti today, let our prayers be stones against anxiety, fear, sickness, violence and disorder. Let us pray against darkness and for the power of the gospel to transform the lives of those that are broken and without hope.
Please also join us in praying for:
Philippians 4:4-7 says,
“Rejoice in the Lord always, I will say it again; REJOICE! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The LORD IS NEAR. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace that passes all understanding will keep your hearts and minds in Christ.”
