Pray until something happens (PUSH) is a quarterly activity that we have in our ministry. This is a time where we join in corporate prayer to pray for different concerns within the ministry, church and even personal matters. This is an open letter to all those who helped and attend PUSH last Saturday.
It is always a joy for me to see people serving the Lord. When I saw everyone together and united in preparing for PUSH last Thursday, I was already overjoyed. You guys showed your dedication and love for the ministry God had trusted to you. Despite your busy schedule in work, you all came to serve Him on a weekday. All your efforts and hard work paid off last Saturday. Everyone was blessed and had a wonderful time praying and worshiping God – I know God was glorified that day.
To the Production team:
I know it is not easy preparing the backdrop. Ever since you’ve started to design the stage it has always looked wonderful. The backdrop in our Love, Sex and Dating series was amazing! Moreover, the backdrop that you have created for PUSH was amazing as well. Cutting the tree was no easy task but the output was a sight to see. I pray that you guys will never get tired of creating wonderful designs and backdrops for His glory alone.
To the Prayer team:
You guys did a heck of a job thinking about the program and helping out in the preparations of the event. I see the bond that you guys have for each other, and you treat one another as a family – Praise the Lord for that. I know it was nerve-racking for those who went up stage just to facilitate the prayer, but I thank you for challenging yourself and stepping out of your comfort zone. I know everyone in the prayer team contributed to this. You were all united, and your unity made a big impact in this event. Pray is a vital part of the ministry. I want to say thank you for always covering us with prayers and reminding us to continue to pray and push on. May you never get tired of praying and seeking the Lord in prayer.
To the Worship Team:
I was expecting only four songs, but you guys stretched yourselves to play for more. Thank you for pushing yourselves and serving us through the talents that Lord has given you. How I still long to play and make music with everyone, that desire for me to play for the Lord is still there but I know I need to give this up for something greater. However, I know as well that I am letting this go because all of you are already well capable enough. Practice hard and continue developing the talents you have.
To others who have helped out in the event:
I may not be able to thank everyone, but the Lord sees the work that you have done – great is your reward in heaven. The audience is only one. He sees your heart and your service.
To all those who attended:
A lot will be happening in the ministry for the next couple of months. Can I just continue to encourage everyone to pray for this ministry? Pray for the Retreat this coming August. May the Lord bring in a harvest that will be discipled and grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Pray for the leaders of this ministry. May they be sensitive to the leading of the Lord and be protected from attacks physically and emotionally. Pray for the different clusters within the ministry that they will be faithful to the responsibility that they have and always serve the Lord with gladness of heart. And lastly, let’s pray for one another. Let’s pray that we will always be united in our love because of Jesus Christ. Let’s not neglect fellowship every Saturday. Let’s follow the model of the early church before.
