Commission On The Way Forward Begins Meeting Today in Atlanta. 

The Commission On A Way Forward holds its first in person meeting today-Thursday in Atlanta.  Commission members include our own Pat Miller and Tom Lambrecht of Good News.

Our Illinois Great Rivers Conference is called to pray this week, based on this prayer calendar. 

Troy UMC Sanctuary will be open for prayer tomorrow, Wednesday, January 25 from 5:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Please pray for:

1)  The Holy Spirit to be completely in control of this process.

2)  Participants to have discernment and wisdom, health and focus.

3)  Please pray this meeting will build a strong foundation and relationships that will set the tone for their work together. Pray that they see the image of God in one another.

4) Pray for God to use them to find a way out of the loop of ongoing conflict that honors Scripture and cares for individuals and the local churches that minister to them.

5)  Pray Scripture.  Here are some suggestions:

Psalm 91

Philippians 2

Acts 4:13

Psalm 139:23-24
