PRAY 8/26/20



“…the Spirit…transforms us to be like Christ. He helps us to be dependent and prayerful, and by bringing us into the Father-Son relationship he brings us to share God’s life and purpose. Our desires start echoing God’s, his passions become ours, and so we begin to share his love and compassion for his people and his world. Consequently, we become intercessors and priests, like our great high priest Jesus who is constantly interceding.”

                                                                                  – Michael Reeves


 “Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (Ephesians 5:1-2)
