Invitation to Prayer from Faces of Children ... Tomorrow

Faces of Children is an ecumenical prayer ministry under the auspices of First Presbyterian Church of Midland, Texas. Their mission is to initiate ministries of prayer for children in churches, communities, and neighborhoods. In doing so, they seek to provide an opportunity for people of God to join together, learn about children and their needs throughout the world, and celebrate Christ's love (especially as it relates to children).

Invitation to Prayer ... Tomorrow

Hi Friends,

If you're in town and free, please join us to pray together on Wednesday at 11:00 a.m., in the gym conference room at First Presbyterian Church of Midland, Texas.

Please note the new time. We are trying this for one semester so that we have less time conflict with the new women's Bible study that is starting on Wednesdays at 11:30.

Also, Faces of Children is now on Facebook! I invite you to like our page so that you can see regular stories, prayer needs, and updates from partner ministries.

All the best,

Carrie



Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
Psalm 119:105


Dear Intercessors,

Always remember to never forget: He is good. He is good. He is good.

This week, we see His goodness in a landmark court ruling by India's top court criminalizing intercourse with minors even when it's disguised as marriage. Experts expect, with proper enforcement, this could cut down on rampant child trafficking and sexual abuse.

But even in the light of this victory, there are still 20,000 girls married-off each day around the world, amounting to 7.5 million girls every year in countries where the practice is illegal. And in India, child brides are sold to men from Gulf state nations working in India, remaining "married" only as long as the men are in the country.

Legal victories are only half the battle... enforcement is the other, more challenging, battle, and we stand together asking God for victory in this arena as well. As we stand together, we are helping to keep the light on in the dark.

Is there any end to the sorrow and suffering? The injustice and natural disasters? The shattered lives and broken hearts? There doesn't seem to be, and most days lately I've been feeling like my prayers don't make it very far.

/////

This week, I see His goodness right here in our own community in the form of 130 boxes of Chic-Fil-A nuggets, lovingly donated in honor of a little girl who passed away last year. Now when the crowd of high school students come over for soda after school, they'll unexpectedly find a snack, too. A bright spot of joy, and a reminder they are loved and they matter, in honor of a little girl who left this world too soon.

But these bright spots of joy don't erase the heart ache of Mary Catherine's family, or any family who has lost a child. We stand together asking God to strengthen, encourage, and minister to parents who have buried children. As we stand together, we are helping to keep the light on in the dark.

Always remember to never forget: He is good. He is good. He is God.

"Because His word, is a lamp
And a light, to your path
And Jesus promised to be with you
Where you are, where you are
And you don't have to be afraid, of the dark anymore
Because His truth will keep the light on, in your heart
Yes His truth will keep the light on."

Today's Reading

‘Niceness’—wholesome, integrated personality—is an excellent thing. We must try by every medical, educational, economic, and political means in our power to produce a world where as many people as possible grow up ‘nice’; just as we must try to produce a world where all have plenty to eat. But we must not suppose that even if we succeeded in making everyone nice we should have saved their souls. A world of nice people, content in their own niceness, looking no further, turned away from God, would be just as desperately in need of salvation as a miserable world—and might even be more difficult to save.

For mere improvement is not redemption, though redemption always improves people even here and now and will, in the end, improve them to a degree we cannot yet imagine. God became man to turn creatures into sons: not simply to produce better men of the old kind but to produce a new kind of man. It is not like teaching a horse to jump better and better but like turning a horse into a winged creature. Of course, once it has got its wings, it will soar over fences which could never have been jumped and thus beat the natural horse at its own game. But there may be a period, while the wings are just beginning to grow, when it cannot do so: and at that stage the lumps on the shoulders—no one could tell by looking at them that they are going to be wings—may even give it an awkward appearance.

He had always disliked the people who encored a favourite air in an opera—“That just spoils it” had been his comment. But this now appeared to him as a principle of far wider application and deeper moment. This itch to have things over again, as if life were a film that could be unrolled twice or even made to work backwards . . . was it possibly the root of all evil? No: of course the love of money was called that. But money itself—perhaps one valued it chiefly as a defence against chance, a security for being able to have things over again, a means of arresting the unrolling of the film.

Equal Exchange's mission is to build long-term trade partnerships that are economically just and environmentally sound, to foster mutually beneficial relationships between farmers and consumers and to demonstrate, through our success, the contribution of worker co-operatives and Fair Trade to a more equitable, democratic and sustainable world.


Just in time for Halloween: 20% off Organic Chocolate Minis

Believe it or not... chocolate can be scary! Every year, Americans spend over a billion dollars on millions of pounds of Halloween chocolate. The conventional chocolate industry is not fair. But we can change that.

Fair Trade chocolate companies like Equal Exchange pay farmers a fair price for their cacao, which helps them support their families, care for the environment and invest in their futures. We visit our farmer partners often and can verify that no forced child labor was involved in the growing of our cacao. That's how it should be ...

Tirian, with his head against Jewel’s flank, slept as soundly as if he were in his royal bed at Cair Paravel, till the sound of a gong beating awoke him and he sat up and saw that there was firelight on the far side of the stable and knew that the hour had come. “Kiss me, Jewel,” he said. “For certainly this is our last night on earth. And if ever I offended against you in any matter great or small, forgive me now.”

“Dear King,” said the Unicorn, “I could almost wish you had, so that I might forgive it. Farewell. We have known great joys together. If Aslan gave me my choice I would choose no other life than the life I have had and no other death than the one we go to.”

TO Mrs. JESSUP, who seems to have written Lewis about the difficulties of being in a marriage in which one of the spouses is a Christian and one is not: On the slow process of being remade and how difficult we must be to live with after conversion as before; and on not concealing but not flaunting our conversion.

15 October 1951

I agree with everything you say (except that I should publish anything on the subject: a bachelor is not the man to do it—there is such an obvious answer to anything he says!).

Our regeneration is a slow process. As Charles Williams says there are three stages: (1.) The Old Self on the Old Way. (2.) The Old Self on the New Way. (3.) The New Self on the New Way.

After conversion the Old Self can of course be just as arrogant, importunate, and imperialistic about the Faith as it previously was about any other interest. I had almost said ‘Any other Fad’—for just as the loveliest complexion turns green in a green light, so the Faith itself may have at first all the characteristics of a Fad and we may be as ill to live with as if we had taken up Nudism or Psychoanalysis or Pure Wool Clothing. You and I, clearly, both know all about that: one makes blunders.

About obedience, the principle is clear. Obedience to man is limited by obedience to God and, when they really conflict, must go. But of course that gives one very little guidance about particulars. The converted party must pray: I suppose it is not often necessary to pray in the presence of the other! Especially if the converted party is the woman, who usually has the house to herself all day. Of course there must be no concealment, in the sense that if the question comes up one must say frankly that one does pray. But there is a difference between not concealing and flaunting. For the rest (did I quote this before?) MacDonald says ‘the time for speaking seldom arrives, the time for being never departs.’ Let you and me pray for each other.

Double your FWM donation, this month in Midland

"Because NO ONE should have to crawl!" was Dr. Don Schoendorfer's comment when he recognized the need for strong and inexpensive wheelchairs. The Free Wheelchair Mission Drive, with matching funds, is through the month of October. Cost of each wheelchair is $80. You can donate online at fpcmid.org and clicking on Make a Contribution (selecting 'Quick Give,' then 'Wheelchairs'), using a kiosk at the church or sending a check payable to FPC with "wheelchair" noted in the memo line.

I have heard some people complain that if Jesus was God as well as man, then His sufferings and death lose all value in their eyes, ‘because it must have been so easy for Him’. Others may (very rightly) rebuke the ingratitude and ungraciousness of this objection; what staggers me is the misunderstanding it betrays. In one sense, of course, those who make it are right. They have even understated their own case. The perfect submission, the perfect suffering, the perfect death were not only easier to Jesus because He was God, but were possible only because He was God. But surely that is a very odd reason for not accepting them? The teacher is able to form the letters for the child because the teacher is grown-up and knows how to write. That, of course, makes it easier for the teacher; and only because it is easier for him can he help the child. If it rejected him because ‘it’s easy for grown-ups’ and waited to learn writing from another child who could not write itself (and so had no ‘unfair’ advantage), it would not get on very quickly. If I am drowning in a rapid river, a man who still has one foot on the bank may give me a hand which saves my life. Ought I to shout back (between my gasps) ‘No, it’s not fair! You have an advantage! You’re keeping one foot on the bank’? That advantage—call it ‘unfair’ if you like—is the only reason why he can be of any use to me. To what will you look for help if you will not look to that which is stronger than yourself?

The Free Burma Rangers (FBR) is a multi-ethnic humanitarian service movement. They bring help, hope and love to people in the war zones of Burma (Myanmar) and the Middle East.

Founding Ranger Passes Away: Mucu Senior Ranger

We have lost one of our original founding rangers- Mucu Bani. Mucu Bani passed away from cancer this summer on July 28th and his loss has left a hole in my heart and the heart of us Rangers and my family. Mucu was a Karenni and one of the first four rangers to found FBR in 1997. He was our teacher, older brother, mentor and brother in Christ. It took me a long time to write this because his passing made me so sad, to think of him gone. He died right after we came back form a mission in Iraq and his loss was on top of so many others. He was one of my closest friends and a older brother and adviser to me when we started FBR and taught me how to understand and love the people of Burma and how we could help ...

Come meet Kenny, TONIGHT at Grace Presbyterian


Kenny Logan, Belize Project Director for Amarillo, Texas-based The Word at Work ministry, is in the United States this month, visiting churches and friends, sharing news about TWAW, and encouraging others to support the ministry.

On Thursday, October 12 - TONIGHT - 7:00 p.m., Kenny will be at Grace Presbyterian Church, 2801 N. Garfield Street in Midland, Texas.

The Midland community is invited to join us, meet Kenny, and hear what he has to say about Belize and the mission.

Last month in Belize, while he was unpacking a shipping container from Pennsylvania, Kenny took time out to send you this video message ...


Kenny wants to see you! from The Word at Work on Vimeo.




"The Word at Work is a ministry that mobilizes churches and individuals to answer God's call to minister to those in need," writes Rev. Tim Tam, Director of the Amarillo, Texas-based ministry. "Through our relationships, God reveals needs and opportunities for service. As we come along side the poor, new friendships develop and doors for ministry open. As we serve, God provides the resources to supply for the needs he reveals."
