Ezra 8:21-23 Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance. For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him. So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.
This month is going to be a month of seeking The Lord together in prayer. This will be a month where we set times for us to intentionally pray with one another and for one another. There are so many submitted prayer requests regarding health issues, employment or financial concerns, prodigal sons and daughters, unsaved spouses and family members, challenges that our children are facing at all levels of education, in addition to the fact that our church family is about to celebrate our 33rd year together. The time to address these needs and seek the future of Koinonia Fellowship is now.
When Ezra was planning to lead a remnant of Jews back to Jerusalem, he refused the king’s military protection because he had been boasting to him about God’s protection. The journey would be treacherous; there would be the danger of being robbed by thieves because of the vast amount of silver and gold that they would be carrying along with them. Wisely, Ezra called for a time of prayer to seek of God a right way for His people. We want and need God to lead us and show us what His will and plans are for His flock called Koinonia. Please make the time and take the time to join us. SELAH
