What we are asking YOU to pray about today!
Thank God for the facilities He has made available to us. We have already, in about 10 days, outstripped the originally intended facilities. Pray that God will provide the right facilities at the right price. Thank God, IN ADVANCE, for the answer to this prayer -- He WILL provide.
Pray that all logistical difficulties and concerns of the conference will vanish. Ask God to demostrate in solid and concrete ways that He is in charge and that He will make this happen.
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. Pray especially for the Overall Director: Dr. Andrew Jackson/SmartChristian.com. Your humble poster can sense the stress in his emails -- ask God to make this conference a blessing to him and not a burden.
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, or for the organizers.
Pray that the Guiding Core Values of the confernce will be realized:
Simplicity: to keep the organization and operation of the Convention as simple as possible
Relationship: to ensure that GodBlogCon 2005 is very relational, with a lot of networking and befriending going on with fellow bloggers
Inspiration: to receive inspiration and vision for the significant emerging role of blogging in America's church and culture from Hugh Hewitt and others.
Practicality: to provide practical workshops/roundtables led by top quality leaders in blogging
Diversity: to offer a variety of workshops/roundtable topics that appeal to the diversity of interests within the blogging community.
