Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. Luke 18:1 (NIV)
Prayer has always been a crucial part of the ministry of GNPI, but for the last two years we have focused on it even more. That is because we believe we can do nothing without God’s guidance and help. Maybe we shouldn’t be so amazed when God answers our prayers in such tender, yet powerful ways, but over and over again…we have been amazed.
Tomorrow, December 3, beginning at 8:00 am Central Time, the entire network of regional centers and their staff, plus those of us in Joplin, will join together via the Internet to pray for each other. We would like to invite you to join your prayers with ours during that time. At your desk, at your breakfast table, on your couch, in your car—wherever you might be during that time, would you lift your voice in harmony with ours to the Father on behalf of the ministry of GNPI?
We call it an International Hour Of Prayer – or IHOP. No, we don’t serve pancakes, but we come away just as full, full of the glory of God and full of thanksgiving for the opportunity to be a part of what God is doing around the world.
We will be posting live on Facebook, so you can join us there.
In November of last year, we held our first IHOP. We were so blessed, and we look forward to tomorrow with great anticipation! Thank you for partnering with us and joining us as we give thanks, boldly approaching the throne with our concerns and petitions.
