Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Flyer for the Thursday Pre-Work Prayer Meeting at UPS

[The following is the informational flyer I've been handing out for the Thursday Pre-work Prayer Meeting at UPS. It is patterned on and borrows from the flyer used by Lanphier in the Businessmen's Revival of 1857-1858.]

Side 1:

How Often Shall I Pray?

As often as the language of prayer is in my heart;

as often as I see my need of help;

as often as I feel the power of temptation;

as often as I sense any spiritual weakness,

or feel the aggression of a worldly, earthly spirit...

In prayer, we leave the work of time for that of eternity,

and conversation with men for conversation with God.




(1 Thessalonians 5:17)

Side 2:

A Prayer-Meeting is held every Thursday, starting an hour before start time at the MacDonald’s nearest to our Hub. This meeting is intended to give unloaders, loaders, small-sort workers, sorters and package handlers of all kinds an opportunity to stop and call on God amid the troubles that are common to our respective jobs. The Prayer-Meeting will continue for about 40 minutes. There will be a brief Bible devotion to fix our minds on God, but most of the time will be taken on lifting up our various needs to God in prayer. With our busy lives, it will be a blessing to stop and lift our voices to the throne of grace in humble, grateful prayer.
