On this first day of a new year, I return to “Call for Fire Seminar” after a break of several months. Several other ministry and personal concerns commanded my attention. As I began preaching for a local church in a different state while still serving as a National Guard Chaplain, I continued to heal from the unexpected death of a son. I continued to post prayers from Scripture on the Call for Fire Seminar Facebook page; the calls for fire in Scripture continue to inspire me to seek God and his purpose. As the new year begins, we’re focusing at the church where I preach on renewing hope. Paul’s benediction in Romans 15:13 is my prayer as “Call for Fire Seminar” returns:
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
May you have a year of great joy as you learn the ways of the Lord more fully and spend more time calling to him in prayer.
