What We Are Praying For And About Today

Praise God for the enthusiasm and energy that has met this conference.

Thank God for the facilities He has made available to us.

Pray that God will use this conference for His will and the furtherance of His kingdom. Pray that the participants focus will be on Him.

Pray for the developing leadership team. Ask God to continue to raise up the right leaders. Ask God to create the necessary time in their already busy, busy schedules. Ask the Lord to grant them the wisdom they need. Here is a list of the Executive Group -- pray for them by name:

Overall Director: Dr. Andrew Jackson/SmartChristian.com
Mark Roberts/Senior Pastor: Irvine Presbyterian Church, CA
Joe Carter/Evangelical Outpost
David Wayne/Jollyblogger
DJ Chuang/DJ’s MetaBlog

Pray that God will bring the right people to this conference as participants.

Pray for unity. Pray that everyone realizes that faith in Jesus transcends theological, denominational, and doctrinal differences. Pray that we find the community of Christ, joined in His Spirit, more committed to the mission than to our petty squabbles.

Pray for the speakers and presenters. God grant them wisdom and courage.

Pray for the finances. Ask God to make them abundant, but not wasteful. Ask God to make sure money is not an issue for anyone He wants to participate. Here is what the organizers had to say on that subject today:

Because this is the first Christian Blogsophere Convention, it is important that it is successful, well-attended, and leads the CB forward. As a result, we are asking ALL organizers, speakers, workshop leaders, and helpers to serve at no charge as an investment in the growth and maturity of the CB Church. And even beyond free service, we are also asking for financial gifts (tax deductible) from those in the CB who are able to give abundantly, especially Christian businesses, local churches, and ministries. All charges will go to underwrite the cost and function of the overall Convention, which will be quite significant. Thank you for understanding the strategic nature of this request.

Once again well worded. I like the unity para - it's all about Jesus!

I also appreciate the call to pray that the focus of the GodBlogCon facilitators and participants would remain upon Him.

It's so easy (for me, anyway) to get sidetracked on one worldly tack or another. Often it happens subtly so that I don't notice right away.

Keep it coming!
