August Day of Prayer and Fasting


Dear SE region,
On the first day of each month this year, we as a region have committed ourselves to pray and fast for specific goals.  And God has blessed us by answering many of our faithful prayers.
So with a spirit of gratitude for all our many blessings from God, please join together with your brothers and sisters for a day of prayer and fasting of your choice and duration, Tuesday, August 1st, as we lift up the following requests to God to invite his love and power.

1- That all of our children will be drawn to God and Jesus (John 6:44) and that we would witness a great harvest of young souls following our summer camp season. (Matthew 19:14)

Since camp we have already seen Cambrie Vergeire, Hunter Clemons and Christina Heese baptized!

2- That God would guide every step of our elder nomination process, resulting in the appointment of qualified, god-honoring men, who will bring new talents and wisdom and insight that will complement and enrich our current team of elders. (Titus 1:5)

3- That God would equip all the Denver Church Elders and Evangelists and ministry staff to lead with inspired vision, deep passion, Spirit-filled wisdom, unbreakable unity, soft-hearted compassion, an unquenchable love for Jesus, and an unshakeable reliance on God.  (1 Thessalonians 5:25)

4- That each of our 25 Family Groups in the SE region would help at least one person become a disciple in 2017!  (Matthew 28:18-20)

So far in 2017 we have seen the following 13 people baptized or restored: Sasha Lott, Sherree Perez, Carmelita McIntyre, Elaine Brimage (I), Katherine Vogel, Dan Lapierre, Sebastian Murrillo, Amani Pearson, Anna Hoskins, Gene Vuehig, Cambrie Vergeire, Hunter Clemons, Christina Heese

5- That 'not one would be lost' from our region in 2017! (John 6:39)

Thanks in advance for joining with Dawn and I and the rest of the region on Tuesday!

Grace and Peace,

Rob and Dawn
