A Crossover Service By Debra A. Ziegler
A Crossover Service
A celebration for crossing over to a new year.
From 2015 to 2016
A gathering of people
One Church, many tribes, many languages
Singing, praise, drums, electric guitar, keyboard, shakers, harmonica
Yukelelie, rhythm and song.
A testimony-of the faithful prayer of an aunt, who for 17 years prayed.
Her prayers answered, a relationship begun.
A child now knows who his father is. Praise to God who is faithful.
Humble thanks for the prayers of God’s children, and for His visions that guide us.
A sermon from Joshua 3
Challenging us to cross over into 2016 on the Lord’s side, to sanctify ourselves,
To leave our sinful trouble behind,
To stand firm in the testimony of the Lord.
A time of serious prayers in many languages.
For the Chibok community; the girls that were kidnapped and are still missing. May they know God’s presence and their families be comforted.
For the EYN church – for unity and growth, for good relations with neighbors.
For Boko Haram- to turn from their violent ways and turn to the light.
For church leadership
For marriage and families
For following Christ with a renewed commitment
For safety in travel
And so we began our prayers in 2015 and prayed into 2016
