Call to Prayer

The following went out as an email from Crossroads a few moments ago.  Please join us in prayer.

Crossroads Friends -

This is a special call to prayer on behalf of the families and friends of those who are in a special season of grief and spiritual warfare (see Ephesians 6 quote below). 

I am scheduled to be at Vacation Bible School to lead games tonight but I'm doing my best to see if the rest of the game team can take my leadership role so that I can be at Crossroads for our regular 6:30 PM Tuesday prayer time. 

This is a critical time for certain families and their friends and it would be good for us to raise our hearts to the Lord in prayer together on their behalf.

Please come to Crossroads tonight if you can at 6:30.  If you cannot do that please pause during the 6:30-7:15 time period to put on the armor of God.

Sincerely yours, Pastor Steve Thorson

Ephesians 6:10–20 (NIV84)
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
