Greetings,

I am so looking forward to our next Worldwide Day of Prayer on Tuesday, October 1, 2013.
As we gather this fall, I trust you will consider the privilege that we have to be part of a global movement that commits itself to extreme dependence upon God, expressed through prayer. For our theme for the day, we have chosen a phrase written by the Apostle Paul from 2 Corinthians 5:7. He writes, “We walk by faith.”

Recently, I returned home from the U.S. Staff Conference. While there, we remembered a time exactly 10 years earlier when Bill Bright went home to be with the Lord. The very night Bill died we had scheduled a reception to honor the hundreds of people who had served in the ministry 25 years or more. Most of them knew Bill and Vonette, so we took time to let them share some of their favorite encounters with Bill. There were tears. But there was also joy in recounting the great faith of that man of God.

There is no doubt that faith is one of the things that God has used to build up our movement. And so it must be in the future. Let’s focus on being men and women who walk by faith. To help prepare your heart, I would urge you to join me in some added study and reflection on two passages about faith: 2 Corinthians, Chapter 5, and Hebrews, Chapter 11.

May our lives daily display the truths taught in God’s Word.

Yours in Christ,

Steve Douglass
