The first day the Network launched officially (back on Oct. 21), I drove six hours to a writers' retreat in the mountains of North Carolina. I arrived late afternoon and began sending welcome notes to members who had signed on during the day. Within the first 20 minutes, I realized something special was happening––people throughout the world were grabbing hold of the network as an opportunity to share with others disciples, to enter into a continuing conversation about discipleship, and to find support for what they feel called to do, wherever in the world God has called them.
This morning, I would like to encourage all of us to pray for the members who have joined us from around the world. Pray that they (we!) will be strengthened this day as they (we!) follow God's calling. Pray that they (we!) will have a new sense of what God wants us to do and how He wants us to do it. Pray that they (we!) will have an overwhelming sense of God's peace in their (our!) lives today. Pray for those who will be joining our network in the weeks to come!
Below is a list of the places in the world where we are. Use this as your guide as you join me in a day of prayer:
Canada (all provinces)
United States (40 of 50 states)
This is probably not a complete list because not every one chooses to disclose their location. But it's a great place to start!
