8am- Thanking God
God is worthy of our praise. Through Jesus, he has issued an open invitation for us to come into His throne room, dwelling with Him there. Acknowledge what a privilege it is to stand in God’s presence and to freely petition him for help. He is worthy of all our praise.
9am- Alignment with God's plans for the church and community
It is a new day for Arlington Woods both in the community and the church as we begin our fundraising campaign. Pray we move forward trusting the Lord to provide. Pray to be aligned with God’s plans and purposes for the future, and that He would be glorified in all that we do. Pray that the vision God has for Arlington Woods Church would be birthed in each heart. Pray for the Trend Arlington community to be open to this project.
10am- Unity in the Church
Pray for unity in the church as we move towards our fundraising goal. Much can be accomplished if we join our desires with God’s desire for us. Pray that people would recognize the potential for future ministry through this project and would see that, through this initiative, our church would impact our community to an even greater extent for years to come.
