“To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy – to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power, and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen” (Jude 24).
Whoah! Read it again! What powerful words from our friend Jude as he gives all glory to God in the wonderful doxology that concludes his letter. He ascribes praise to the One who is gives us strength. Praise to the One in whom we stand pure and holy and righteous. Praise to the One who alone deserves it. Who alone is worthy of (and in possession of) glory, majesty, power, and authority.
Jude (the brother of Jesus, and whose name is derived from the tribe of Judah) places and envisions God high and exalted, and we as those who praise His high and holy name together. “Before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.”
In one week we will come together for 24 continual hours of prayer as a church family here at WE. 24 hours of prayer. 24 hours of praise. 24 amazing, humbling, gut-wrenching, Spirit-empowering hours of pouring our hearts out to the Father together.
And together, we will say: “Amen.”
Friday May 3rd at 8am through Saturday May 4th at 8am. 24 Hours of Prayer. See any of our ministry team to sign up for a block of time. Keep the requests coming. Put some thought into them. Search your heart, and search the heart of God, as we pray with and for one another during this holy time of prayer. And what better way to wrap up 24 Hours of Prayer than by having breakfast (and coffee) together on Saturday morning at 8am in the FLC?
Be planning. Be preparing. Be anticipating. And be praying.
Glory to God!
