Hey, Cornerstone Family!
I want to introduce to you an exciting new ministry that I believe will have a significant impact on all of the ministry areas within Cornerstone Baptist Church. This ministry is simply called the Cornerstone Prayer Ministry.
The idea for this ministry initially came from a group that was on a mission trip to support our Essential Church plant in Bellevue, WA. When they saw the very difficult task that the Essential Church team has in reaching that area with the gospel their response was, “We must pray daily for our missions partners.” Coincidentally (that’s a very theological term for God’s Providence), I was teaching on prayer over these summer months. We have learned that prayer is an essential part of our personal spiritual life as it deepens our dependence on God, deepens our faith in God, and deepens our relationship with God. Prayer is also an essential part of our corporate spiritual life as we endeavor to be obedient to carry the message of the gospel to our church family, our community, our nation, and the world. God uses Kingdom methods to accomplish Kingdom purposes.
The goals of the Cornerstone Prayer Ministry are:
- To engage our church in daily prayer.
- To be intentional about praying for God’s Kingdom work.
- To pray for our church’s ministries.
- To pray for our church’s mission opportunities.
I would like to invite you to be part of the Cornerstone Prayer Ministry. If you accept the invitation below, each Monday morning you will receive an email that identifies two specific prayer requests for each day of the week. One request will be ministry oriented – our children’s ministry, our youth ministry, our worship ministry, our community outreach, etc. The other will be missions oriented – one of our church plants, KidzKonnect4Jesus, OM Ships, AWANA, or an active mission trip. We will also be reporting praises as we see God accomplish His purposes through us. Personal, family related prayer requests will remain the focus of Journey Groups.
Please click here to enter your email address and join the Cornerstone Prayer Ministry team. Just imagine what God can do in us and through us if hundreds from the Cornerstone family are praying daily. Remember, Eph. 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.”
I love being your pastor,
