Our Prayer for this Place

As I (Aaron) was doing some reading during my devotions this morning, I came across a passsage from Paul's second epistle to the Thessalonians that struck me as clear, coherent synthesis of our prayer/desire/vision for continued development and maturation of the Sweet Surrender coffeehouse/house church location here in Poznan:

"Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing. Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring...

With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ." (II Thessalonians 1:2-4, 11-12)

Make it so, Lord, we pray! :)
