“'And now,' God says, this God who took me in hand from the moment of birth to be his servant, to bring Jacob back home to him, to set a reunion for Israel— What an honor for me in God’s eyes! That God should be my strength! He says, 'But that’s not a big enough job for my servant— just to recover the tribes of Jacob, merely to round up the strays of Israel. I’m setting you up as a light for the nations so that my salvation becomes global!'” - Isaiah 49:5-6 (MSG) "When all our enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God." - Nehemiah 6:16 (NIV) Lord God, we praise you for all you have done for us. We trust that you are with us throughout this renovation process doing what we think of as the impossible. Please guide us forward as we are a means to your end. Give each of us discernment as we pledge our money for this important project. Let us not wait until our building and renovations are complete to continue to worship you with true and pure worship and to be a witness to your love and saving grace. In Jesus name we humbly pray. Amen.
