Tomorrow, February 23, 2010 marks the beginning of Forty Days of Prayer by the people of the Holston Conference United Methodist Churches. It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit might prepare and equip us to communicate in an invitational way to our friends, acquaintances and those strangers among us God’s desire to be in relationship with all persons.
Please join me in this 40 Day Prayer Journey that begins of the 23rd of February and ends 40 days later. I believe if we will join our voices and hearts in conversation with God, our Lord will hear and empower our lives that we may point people to Jesus.
“And now O Lord, come among us and give us a desire to be in dialogue with you that our witness may be strong, attractive, and convincing so that those who come into contact with us may see and desire to be in relationship with you.” AMEN
Yours in Christ,
Bishop James E. Swanson, Sr.
