VISION 2020 40 DAY PRAYER FOCUS
On March 23, we will begin a 40 Day Prayer Focus in preparation for Vision 2020. Vision 2020 involves a refreshing of the facilities we use every day in our ministries—yes—but during this season our continued focus is drawing closer to Jesus. Starting March 23, we will be handing our foldable “Prayer Tent” prayer guides as a visual reminder to study key Scriptures each week. Every week we will be focusing on a different Hebrew name of God, and we will be reading and meditating over verses that talk about those aspects of our amazing Creator. An online guide will be right here to help guide you as you study and pray.
If you would like to receive a daily verse PLUS a daily devotional video from one of our members starting March 23, text 2020pray to 30500.

Day 5- Philippians 2:5-11
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
