MY MORNING PRAYER. YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN ME IN SAYING THIS PRAYER AS YOU START EACH DAY.
God, this is a new day. I freshly commit myself to the role you have invited me to play, as you are building your church in this world. I am awestruck again today that you include me in this grand life-giving, world-transforming endeavor. So today I joyfully offer you my Love, my Heart, my Talents, my Energy, my Creativity, my Faithfulness, my Resources, and my Gratitude. I commit all of myself to the role you have assigned me in the building of your church so that it may thrive in this world. And I will "bring it" today. I will bring my best. You deserve it. Your church deserves it. It is the Hope of the World. I offer up this prayer in the name of your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
About the above prayer: It was said in unison by more than 100,0000 business and Christian leaders around the globe on August 10, 2012, during the Global Leadership Summit. It is being repeated daily. You are invited and encouraged to join in the fellowship of this prayer.

OBSERVATIONS BEFORE PRAYER
Some observations by Rev. Mark Randall, Founder of Churches That Care and the Lord's shepherd of cTc.tv:
"We are seeking to do the Lord's work as here and now seems to be the right place and the right time to help this lost and dying country so it can in turn help the dying world.
Please pray that the Lord opens up paths that will do the most good in reaching the lost with the message."

|THE LORD'S PRAYER|
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread,
Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
Matthew 6: 9-13
THERE’S PEACE and CALM in
THE TWENTY-THIRD PSALM
With the Lord as your shepherd you have all that you need,
For if you follow in His footsteps wherever he may lead,
He will guard and guide and keep you in His loving, watch care,
And when traveling in dark valleys, your Shepherd will be there …
His goodness is unfailing,
His kindness knows no end,
For the Lord is a Good Shepherd on whom you can depend…
So when your heart is troubled, you’ll find quiet, peace and calm
If you’ll open up the Bible and just read this treasured Psalm.
from A Collection of Blessings by Helen Steiner Rice
THE SHEPHERD’S PSALM
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: He leadth me in the paths of righteous for his name’s sake,
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Recently I stumbled over a neat book, A Shepherd Looks At Psalm 23, and found it to be a delightful and easy read. It is even available in audio form (1 hour abridged or 3.7 hour unabridged).

PRAYER CIRCLE for prayer supporters of this mission: The Lord reveals His will in many ways. If it is His will, let there be a billboard on one of the inbound highways to Richmond, Virginia, that has just the ctc.tv logo -- and in bold letters, the domain: http://cTc.tv This will help guide the footsteps of this mission on how to get more guests to this web site. Think even bigger: why not mentally circle a billboard that you see on any highway into any city and pray that one day soon it too will have the cTc.tv logo and domain name presented to all who drive by. Then pray daily that what you visualize becomes a reality when the Lord is ready! The lost who as their first step visit cTc.tv and eventually come to know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ will one day thank you for your prayers. And please pray that an expert editor comes forth to help make this website the best that it can be! Thank you for your prayers. John
IT HAS HAPPENED!
I AM NOW 75 YEARS OLD --
I PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS GRACE AND MERCY!
