Tomorrow, thousands of Filipinos will join the seven-day prayer and fasting activity of Victory Christian Fellowship that kicks off every year. It’s an amazing way to get into the right frame of mind for the year by reconnecting with God, asking Him for direction, and praying that He sanctify and bless one’s year ahead. In the case of VCF-Greenhills, it is also a powerful community-building activity that I, for one, am looking to enjoy in every way (Cathy and I will most likely participate in the Saturday prayer meeting).
I’m praying for the following:
- A closer relationship with God. I pray to be closer. I want to be closer. I need to be closer. Draw me close, Lord, so close I can feel Your heartbeat. (And so mine can beat in sync with Yours.)
- A heart – and mouth – for evangelism. I so desperately want God to give me opportunities to bring people to Him, and the wisdom to say the right things when the opportunities arise. I’ve had it with No more chickening out this year!
- Wisdom in guiding my family daily. Cathy and I have an awesome vision for our family. This year, we’ll really make it happen.
- Wisdom to decide whether to stay at my current job. I’m actually happy at my job, but there’s an opening in ministry that I, quite frankly, want so bad and I know I’d be great in. If I get it, great; if not, great anyway.
- Wisdom for our finances. We’re not in bad shape by a long shot, but we want to really GIVE.
- More opportunities to minister in music and media, and humility as I take advantage of these opportunities. This year, I will be given the opportunity to lead worship. I pray God takes center stage and glory, not me. I also pray that wherever I may be, that the talents of music and writing always be available so I can use it for His glory.
- Safe delivery for Jess and Thammie
- An opportunity to move to Makati, in a place we can afford, by next year so we can be closer to work and Nathan can go to a great Chinese school
- An ASUS EEE
