Morning Day 2

In Exodus 17, the Israelites were fighting the Amalekites.  Verse 11 states, "As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning".  As we worshiped this morning we lifted our hands in dependence on God.  We worshiped God for all that He is to each of us and to our world.  

Throughout the morning we praised God.  We wanted to glorify Him for His character, deep love for each of us and the work He is doing in our lives and the lives of those we love.  We sang, "be enthroned upon the praises of 1000 generations, you are worthy, Lord of all".  As we were praising there was a sense that God was so pleased.  That early in the morning we would turn our eyes to Him and worship Him first.

Pastor Rob had the younger generation pray out for their peers.  To cry out for their generation.  People prayed that God would touch the ones who are broken, lost and searching for God.  Students prayed for the campus, those they have class with and see on a daily basis.

Then the older generation prayed for the younger generation.  It's a blessing and encouragement to see the young people at the church.  God is going to take each of these students to different places to touch many lives.  We prayed that this generation would seek the Lord all the days of their lives and have a story where they followed Him and didn't turn away.  We want to be recognized as people who have spent time with the Lord, that this week would serve as a marker going forward of seeing God's faithfulness and that God would do the work He is desiring to do.

On Zoom we had the opportunity to pray for each person and were joined by those we love across the seas!

We will see many of you this afternoon at our noon prayer meeting!
