This morning was great!  My excitement was not in vain!  God is up to something, He is always up to something, but we have been invited to play a small part in seeing His plans come to fruition.

Today we launched the iSERVE * iPRAY movement.  I refer to it as a movement, because it is not so much a program as much as it is a lifestyle change.  40 days towards developing a heart and habit, of focusing on God and others. Over the next 40 days, I truly believe people's lives are going to be transformed, they are going to grow in faith, and love.  As a result the lives of those around them are going to changed, as well as their churches and community.

Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." ~Matthew 5:16

This was all initiated with the belief that everybody wants to change the world, but many don’t even know where to start. iSERVE * iPRAY is 40 days of Prayer & Service. A humble little 40 day devotional and action plan, for ordinary people who want to make extraordinary things happen. It is a practical guide to being salt and light in our world. When implemented with sincerity of heart, purpose of mind and the power of prayer, we will not only see our self change but will potentially experience a transformation in our life and the lives of those around us that will create ripples which will echo into eternity. If we give a little of our self— we really can make a difference!

Having practical application, in addition to God’s word and prayer helps us to grow in both our being & doing as Christians. It is important that we keep this is balance – If we just do the actions we simply become powerless humanitarians, and if we just pray and read God’s word, we become pew potatoes.

I printed off 160 devotionals believing that this would leave us with a few extras, for those who could not make it this morning, as well as friends of friends etc.  Much to my surprise and delight, by the end of the service all 160 were gone, and I was rushing to get more printed!  People were requesting copies for their small groups, bible study groups and friends.  There was a definite excitement and anticipation in the air.

As stories are shared and my own experiences develop over the next 40 days, I will be sure to include them in blog posts.

If you would like more information about the  iSERVE * iPRAY movement, and /or are interested in receiving a free copy of the devotional and action plan,  feel free to contact me.
