After the early service Sunday, Zach Gaddy, who now lives in Charlotte and attends a dynamic church there, said that his church has this focus right now: make room for one more. I love that! If you’ve ever enjoyed a meal around a crowded table, filled with family and friends, you know the feeling of warmth and togetherness.

Today, I’m officially beginning my 30 days of prayer. Here is the prayer from day one:

God, I know there is only one way to salvation. Jesus is clear; He is the only hope for a lost and dying world, and that includes ________________. His/Her salvation depends on acknowledging Jesus is who He says He is, and He alone is the source of salvation. Use the people and circumstances in _______________’s life today to point him/her to the reality of Jesus. Give me courage and boldness to call ___________________to faith in Jesus when the opportunity arises, and help me make it clear there is no other way to be saved.

I honestly can’t wait to see who is going to slide up to our table here at Grace in the next 30 days…and especially on Sunday, October 6.
