Year of Prayer   5.9.21  FCC   Pastor Blake Wood

Is there “a Tabitha” in need of your prayers?               

Acts 9:36 In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (in Greek her name is Dorcas); she was always doing good and helping the poor. 37 About that time she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upstairs room. 38 Lydda was near Joppa; so when the disciples heard that Peter was in Lydda, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Please come at once!”

39 Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.

40 Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up. 41 He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called for the believers, especially the widows, and presented her to them alive. 42 This became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord.

Is there a Tabitha (or a Thomas) in your life who is no longer being “as productive” for the Lord because of physical, emotional, relational, or spiritual challenges? Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you how you should pray for this Tabitha/Thomas; then pray boldly in agreement with what the Holy Spirit revealed.

Speak O Lord

Verse 1
Speak O Lord as we come to You
To receive the food of Your holy word
Take Your truth plant it deep in us
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith
Speak O Lord and fulfill in us
All Your purposes for Your glory

Verse 2
Teach us Lord full obedience
Holy reverence true humility
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity
Cause our faith to rise
Cause our eyes to see
Your majestic love and authority
Words of power that can never fail
Let their truth prevail over unbelief

Verse 3
Speak O Lord and renew our minds
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
That will echo down through eternity
And by grace we’ll stand on Your promises
And by faith we’ll walk as You walk with us
Speak O Lord till Your church is built
And the earth is filled with Your glory

CONNECT WITH US

Faith Community Church is full of opportunities to build relationships and get involved.
“My husband and I have been attending FCC for just over a year now and we continue to be awed by how this faith community has felt like home and incredibly thankful that God has provided a place for us to worship and get involved in Kingdom work when my husband’s work schedule doesn’t allow us to attend together on Sunday mornings. We are extremely appreciative that the church represents the city we live in, its diversity reminds us of God’s love for everyone and challenges us to live out that love in service to one another regardless of where we come from. The teaching from Pastor Blake brings new perspective and insights into God’s Word. FCC brought us back to God and we are SO THANKFUL for this church family!!
