Dear Holy Spirit, inhabit us in a way that can be tangibly felt & celebrated.
 
Dearest Father God, help us all, who are associated with Living Sent Ministries, with holy boldness. Overwhelm us with a call that draws us nearer to You.
 
Dear Jesus, give those of us who may be struggling, the strength & will to carry on. Let us not forget to pray for our friends so that our personal besetting sin may be healed (Job 42:10).
 
Open our ears, minds, & hearts to receive what You are speaking. May we rise above distractions & any self-condemnation that might pervade the courtroom of our mind.
 
Convict us of our sins & lack of devotion, calling us to pursue You in every aspect of our lives. Give unto us more love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, compassion, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness, & self-control. Restore us O Lord. Change us from the inside out. Adjust our worldview outward so it focuses on the great needs of the people. Help us to always remember that you, Lord Jesus, did not come to make bad people good, but to make dead people alive.
 
We pray these things in your holy, precious, powerful & wonderful name, Lord Jesus Christ.

A Prayer for Leaders at Work: Insights from Martin Luther

Summer 2016

A Quote from Martin Luther:It is pure invention that pope, bishops, priests, and monks are to be called the "spiritual estate;"   princes, lords, artisans, and farmers the "temporal estate." That is indeed a fine bit of lying and hypocrisy. Yet no one should be frightened by it; and for this reason-namely, that all Christians are truly of...

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father ...

How to Live Sent

According to Dr. Amy Sherman, there are at least 4 ways to Live Sent:

1. Bloom where you are planted.

Care to help build the Kingdom right where God has you assigned in the marketplace?

2. Start something new.

Do you have a passion for addressing an unmet community need? Consider forming  either a for profit or nonprofit company and start something new.

3. Give your skills (vocational) away to a community ministry.

Is there a community ministry that could benefit from your vocational skills and talents?

4. A Church Big Vision for the City.

Does your church have a Big Vision for the City? Do you have one and want to encourage your church to consider helping you to develop it?
