Good morning/afternoon/evening.
We had a wonderful Bible study yesterday and last night, where we discussed Daniel chapter 2 and 4. In our discussion, we engaged conversation about Daniel 2:17: "Then Daniel went to his home and informed his companions, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, and told them to seek mercy from the God of heaven concerning this mystery, so that Daniel and his companions with the rest of the wise men of Babylon might not perish." Our discussion was regarding how Daniel, in a time of decision and crisis, did not attempt to make a decision without consulting God, and without asking like-minded persons to join him in seeking an answer from God.
As you know, we are in the midst of transition, and it is best if we seek God for the direction God will lead us. I know that many (if not all of) you pray for the direction of the church IN GENERAL. However, now I am asking that you join us in prayer SPECIFICALLY in regard to what we should do about our times for service. We have heard from our members about their preferences and opinions. Let us now ask what God would have us do, and let us seek to be led by His guidance.
I am asking that everyone who is able join us for Prayer Meeting this evening and next Wednesday at 6 p.m., with the specific goal of seeking God's direction for this important decision for our church. We pray mindful that God answers prayer, and approaching this as did Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20:12: "...We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you."  
If you are unable to physically join us, please be in prayer with us wherever you are at 6 p.m. this week and next. Thanks.
"Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes, and I will observe it to the end. Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart."
Psalm 119:33-34
