Small Child on knees praying

M2M Shares a blessing and ministry update from our friends at Time to Revive.

Hello dear praying friends –

As Kyle was home over the weekend…we continue to give thanks for the many that pray for Time to Revive and our family. We know you are an army and we are thankful for each one of you to lift up our ministry!

I’ve attached a picture that I took today of our 23 month year old, Jude. Jude and I were home just the two of us this afternoon and as he often does…he began just calling out “Daddy, Daddy, Daddy”. He does this often, almost in like a British accent. He loves his daddy and no matter if Kyle is in town or out of town…he will still do this. So today, I had been following along on Kyle’s itinerary while he is in the Twin Cities preparing for prayTWIN CITIES in January. So around 4:45pm when Jude was doing this…I thought…let’s use Jude’s little calling out for Daddy as a reminder to remember to stop and pray together for Daddy. So we paused and prayed for Kyle who at that moment was having a LIVE radio interview on a local radio in Minneapolis. I had to snap this picture a few minutes later, when I saw Jude praying again for Daddy. Just a few hours before all of this, I had written down these words as they had been echoing in my ear all day yesterday and this morning…Ephesians 3:14-19

“For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you according to the riches of His glory to be strengthened with power through His spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.”

And so on a week that is filled at Time to Revive with a trip to the Twin Cities, MN and Columbia, SC and our TTR crew all of the country traveling and pouring into people with the love of Jesus…please pray this over our TTR staff…and trainers and missionaries….
* May we be strengthened with power – through His Spirit
* May Christ dwell in our hearts – through faith
* May we be rooted and grounded in love
* may we be able to comprehend and know the love of Christ
* May we be filled up to the fullness of God

And may we pray with boldness….and child-like faith like Jude….knowing that the Lord hears us and answers.

Here are some specifics for the week:

PRAISE: Kyle and Rich had an incredible meeting in Alabama last week that we asked for prayer for. The Lord brought unity and clarity to the group as they discussed publishing realities for the Bible and also the discipleship pieces that the Lord had put together from the 3 years TTR was on the radio. Pray for our steps to continue to move forward with this…as the Lord leads. Again…the Lord was IN the meeting. It was great. Thank you for praying! stay tuned!
