On the 11th Day of Christmas…
I won’t call it a New Year’s resolution exactly, but I will call it a renewed commitment. While the congregation I serve, and its people, are always in my prayers, each week of 2016 I commit to entering the sanctuary early on one day to pray specifically for five households. The plan is that by the end of 2016 I will have named before God every member.
On this 11th Day of Christmas I prayed at the altar, by name, for 7 members as described, plus 4 or so more who have special needs at this time. 11 (+/-) folks who helped make this time with God another special, holy one.
