Notes from Sunday – 1/20/13

safe_image.php_Today concluded our 2013 Prayer Emphasis Week at Shiloh. It has been a rich week.

We prayed for daily targets this week. There were daily prayer meetings at noon. And we had all-night prayer meeting Friday night.

Thanks to staff and volunteers for the labor and sacrifice this week. You make it happen!

Glad to have all of our guests in worship today.

Shout-out to our music department. You did a great job today!

I preached from Romans 10:1-4 about “Praying for the Lost.”

Sermon Point: The most important thing you can pray for someone is that he or she may be saved.

I drew the outline of the message from verses 2-4:

  1.  Pray the lost will know God’s truth (v. 2)
  2. Pray the lost will submit to God’s righteousness (v. 3)
  3. Pray the lost will trust in God’s Son (v. 4)

I look forward to preaching through Romans one day, God willing.

Praise God for those who were added to the church today.

Today is also Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Pray for the unborn!

Next Sunday I plan to begin a new series called, “Family Matters.” I intend to start the series with a message from Genesis 2;18-24 called “The Meaning of Marriage.”

I picked the 49ers and Ravens to win today. I am hoping for a Harbaugh brothers Super Bowl.

The San Francisco 49ers won a thriller against the Atlanta Falcons, 28-24.

Well, the quarterback that took put the 49ers in a position to get to this point will go to the Super Bowl… as a back-up for Colin Kaepernick.

I am hoping the Ravens can  upset the New England Patriots this evening. But it will be no easy feat.

I do not know what to say about the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax story that has consumed the news this week.

Did you know that the NHL lockout is over?

Did you know the Australian Open was going on?

Have a great Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
