I don’t need to inform you that the mission of First Image draws spiritual warfare.
And, that Christ has called us to an impossible mission: To open the eyes of the blind and awaken the hearts of the broken so they can see and receive life from Christ and give life to their babies.
Only God can renew the Image of God in the hearts and minds of sexually compromised students and women and men facing unintended pregnancies, and the devastation of past abortions.
“This kind can be cast out only by prayer.” (Mark 9:29).
But with God, all things are possible.
Prayer is vital and we desire a deeper engagement with our like-minded friends and passionate partners in prayer, together, for the advance of our mission.
We want to launch into this next year with fresh momentum. That requires more time set aside to be intentional from more people. Starting this September we’ll be launching a Prayer Initiative.
The plan is to establish First Image program prayer teams that will cover each of the 10 ministry aspects that make up First Image (4 PRCs, Heart, The Reality Project, Development, Medical, Board, and Executive Staff) every day in prayer from now until the beginning of next year.
Many of you receive our regular prayer email, but this is intended to go deeper and we hope this will enrich your prayer stewardship and partnership with us, and trust that we will overcome obstacles and bring transformation to those we serve, and to all of us who pray. We are already looking forward to the ways God will mobilize us as we come together in prayer.
Just think: if our ministry is prayed for every day of every month for the next six months, we will potentially have hundreds of people seeking the heart of God for the advance of the mission of First Image and for the renewal of people impacted sexual brokenness and abortion in our city.
Won’t it be encouraging to see what God might do in the next year in the lives of those we want to reach, and in our own lives? Because you are passionate about impacting our city with the hope and transformation of Christ, would you join one of our program prayer teams and be a part of the new thing God is doing in our ministry through prayer?
We also invite you to come and gather with us for a Prayer + Worship Night at Hinson Baptist Church on October 12th, 2017 from 7-9 pm to kick off this fall prayer initiative. Together, we will be seeking the Lord and praying for First Image and those we serve. See you there!
