STEPHEN MINISTRY

Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.  1 Corinthians 1:31

Gracious God, you know my heart. You know what happens in mw when I feel proud. Forgive me, Lord, when my pride is selfish when I take credit for that which comes from your grace in my life.

Help me to see myself and my accomplishments in the clear light of your truth. Whether I feel pride because the lawn I just mowed looks good, or because I’ve contributed to your work in the world, may my feelings of pride be marinated in humble gratitude. Let me live each day thankful for how you are at work through me, yet continuously aware of just how much I depend on you in all things.

Above all, may you be my pride and joy. When I boast, may I boast in you! Amen

For more information on becoming a Stephen Minister please contact Gwen Scarth,  at gwenyth.allen@gmail.com or at 706-258-8757 or John VanNamen at vannamenjohn@ gmail.com or at 219-670-3057.
