Aaron Pennington – Queen Creek Campus Pastor
I have never heard of the city Minya until this past weekend when I saw it on one of our displays at church. If you were there you know we gave you the opportunity to choose one city in North Africa and partner with us in praying for the people there. My guess is I will never go to the city of Minya much less meet any of the people who live there. But, the beauty of our faith is that we can offer up words to the creator of this universe and it actually influences what is going on in Minya (fill in with the city you chose). My hope is that you believe that, because there are people around the world who have never heard about the saving grace that comes through faith in Jesus Christ, and believe it or not, they are depending on your prayers, even though they may not know it yet.
Lord, I pray for Minya and all the people who live there. I pray that you will bring, put, call people to that particular city who will not only tell people about Jesus, but show them what it looks like to live out His amazing grace. May their hearts be softened as they are presented with an idea they have never considered, that Jesus is truly God, the Messiah, and the only way they will get to you will be through Him. Amen.
