As you may or may not know I was on a pastors retreat and fishing trip to Southern Missouri this past week and got back Sunday evening. This retreat included 10 pastors from the Metro KC area and all are leaders of “Village Fires” in their respective cities. The central topic of our prayer and discussion was the Presence of God in our Cities, Congregations and ourselves. The scripture verse that was at the heart of everything was this: “Now David built houses for himself in the city of David; and he prepared a place for the ark of God and pitched a tent for it. (1 Chronicles 15:1 NASB)”. We spent a good portion of our time praying for one another, encouraging each other and asking God for His Presence to increase in us and in those we serve. So with that being said this will be our MMV for this week. Please keep in mind 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 as well as we READ IT – WRITE IT – SAY IT – SING IT – PRAY IT.
We need the manifest presence of God in our midst as we cannot so do anything with out it that will be fruitful and long lasting.
Much love and blessings,
Michael & Kathy
