I don’t know about you, but I sense that God is about to do great and mighty things here at Eastmont. It’s not to say that He hasn’t done great things in the past here, for He has, nor that He is not doing them in the present, for I know He is, but I believe that He is preparing us as a local body of Christ for bigger and better things for His glory!
The worship and praise that takes place every Sunday morning at both services directs our attention and focus on the object of our worship – our Creator God. He and He alone is worthy of our praise. Lance, Eddy, the senior adult choir, the adult choir, our youth and children’s choirs, youth praise band, praise team, the orchestra, the instrumentalists. handbells and the tech crew do a wonderful job in leading all of us in corporate worship. Whether it’s Jeff, Cleve or Gene, God has used these men through His Holy Spirit to bring us the truth of God’s Word in a way that is both inspiring and challenging.
Praying for Great Things
I am very excited about our Wednesday Night Fights men’s prayer group. I will be honest and say that sometimes after a very busy Wednesday it is difficult to come back at 10:00 at night and pray, but I’m always glad I do. I leave energized yet humbled in what our God is doing. What we need as believers and as Eastmont church as a whole is true revival. I thoroughly believe this will begin with the faithful prayers of our men on Wednesday nights. All men from teens and up are invited to join us in room 205 at 10:00 pm every Wednesday night.
One of our prayers that we men pray for Eastmont is Colossians 3:12-17. I want to pray this prayer for you right now:
“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.”
