Hey Christian, Did You Forget Me?
I apologize for interrupting you, after all I can see you are very busy with all the Christian things you have going on. I realize the upcoming elections are keeping most of you busy with reading and posting on social media, going to rallies for your political party, and arguing with those who disagree with you. I thought you might add me to the churches prayer page, but I could not expect to take priority over the upcoming surgeries, sickness, and/or the latest, most urgent "unspoken" request. Honestly, I would not mind if you just fit me in during your private prayer and devotion time but I realize now that time has been pushed aside to make room for watching debates, and worrying about the latest news topic. I was hoping to benefit from some of your passionate demands to change the world, but I am afraid that energy is fully dedicated to the latest hotly debated conspiracy theory, or propaganda. Well anyway when you get time, and if you don't forget, at you convenience, would you pray for me? I really do need it. ~ the unsaved soul.
Obviously the above paragraph is not meant to criticize the church for praying about sickness, national leadership, or social injustice. It is however meant to awaken and remind Christians that God gave us one mission and that is to go into all the world with the gospel. Every church has a circle of influence inside it's perspective community and we serve God best when our energy and resources are focused on taking the gospel to the unsaved.
The members of SLBC thank you for reading this post. We recognize the challenges of staying focused on the mission God has given us to evangelize the world. We desire to work with other churches and Christians to take the message of God unto all the world. We practice praying to God about our nation, sickness, and many other issues. Currently we are intentionally evaluating our focus on God's instruction to evangelize the unsaved souls of our world. We welcome working with other churches and Christians, because together we accomplish more.
