Not Afraid to Pray

We dodged the snowstorm today, which is weird because so many places south of us got snow and ice. It is cold, but it’s January, so no complaining. I just got back from a good church Saturday night meeting. We use these meetings to keep our core group informed about what is going on behind the scenes. But the main purpose first and foremost is prayer. I want Cornerstone to be a church that is not afraid to pray. I think it is healthy for a church to be able to come together to pray and share, even when there are some concerns. I’m confident that God will continue to lead us and guide us as we make decisions on where to meet. What can we pray for:


Wisdom to make the right decision, guidance through all the choices, and peace about the decision the church makes. I don’t want to look back 10 years from now and wonder “what if?” I think we are at a critical time in the life of our church. Should we be content with just meeting on Sunday morning at our current location, or do we really reach out and start ministering to our community. It’s risky and it’s dangerous, but I’m not living life to make the safe choice. I want to have a facility on our church land in the future, but that doesn’t mean we should ignore the opportunities that God has opened for us now. Let’s not be afraid to pray.


I am a former design engineer who now pastors Cornerstone Community Church in Galax, Virginia. I'm passionate about following Jesus and I love technology. I've been married to Jennifer for 28 years, and we have three adult children.
