Time to Ask For Prayer

Good morning from the West Coast!

Okay, I'm going to ask for some prayer. Cobb Vineyard Church's TWL Kickoff is in 6 days and even though I've really been preparing, I have SO MUCH these next few days and will have far less opportunity to go over my teaching--the days when I would most want to be able to prepare.

And so I'm calling out for a God Stretch.

Would you be so gracious to just stop right now and call out for my efforts to be sufficient--for Him to take what I've offered up and what I will offer up and allow His favor to rest on it all? I really have a heart for these women--most of whom I have never met--and I feel burdened to share this teaching with excellence. I just don't want to get in the way. I actually praise Him for this feeling of weakness, because I know it's a chance for HIS power to be shown perfect. And yet I don't like this feeling of wishing this week held more opportunities to prepare. So I'm calling out for prayer.

I'm in California for a few days, having an awesome and important time with loved ones. I know I'm right where I need to be in these days. But I also want to feel ready for the task at hand. This time of rest is legitimate, and this time has truly been blessed. But "next week" has become "this week" and I want to do what I've been given the opportunity to do in a way that brings glory to His name.

Thanks for your prayers. :)
