I'd like to ask for Christmas Prayers for myself and our teams as we prepare for Christmas at Crossroads. We are adding a 5th service this year and I'd love to fill every single service with your help!
Each year my job is to create a concept for Christmas and then invite one person at a time into the process. This requires that my vision remains strong for the concept and ability to rally the troupes around it, after thinking about it for months.
As each person gets invited into the original process I always begin to doubt myself, so I know this is normal - but it takes God's strength to fully develop a program that delivers the message of Jesus in a creative way while remaining strong in content.
I also know that usually all I have to do after praying like crazy, is to listen again to the music we've chosen and to re-read the beautiful original words that our writer (Jocelyn) has written and I'm again lost in the wonder of what I get to be a part of.
Christmas at Crossroads is a huge opportunity to invite friends that are willing to come to holiday services that maybe are difficult to get to attend normally. These need to be services that are full of people each of us have invited because we care about a lost community around us.
Please pray for our teams and pray asking the Lord for names of friends and co-workers that you know don't know the Lord - you'll be surprised how many say yes when they are asked by someone they know and do life with. You have a month and a half to decide who you'll bring with you. You may be the only person in their life that has the answer to what they've been searching for.
Christmas prayers are needed immediately please!
It's going to a time of some people discovering Jesus for the very first time...the reason we do any of this!
