Prayer: The Real Foundation

A guest post from Senior Pastor Dr. Donald Shirk.
 
Last week it was the sight of a bulldozer that caused emotion to well up in me. Today, it was a cement truck. At approximately 2:45 PM my prayer rock was embedded in concrete in the foundation of our new Worship Center. I chose the corner of my future study to place my prayer rock.
 
Twenty four years ago Claudia and I met Grace Baptist Church and saw nothing but exciting potential for what God could do in this church and our community. Throughout these years God has done extraordinary things in the lives of people through the transforming power of the Gospel. Prayer is the legacy and means by which God has built this church and my study is the place where I pray most. As we look to the future with eyes that see, it will continue to be prayer that builds this church through transformed lives to the glory and praise of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ!
 
“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” – Ephesians 2:19-22
 
All Because of Calvary,
 
Pastor Shirk

One thought on “Prayer: The Real Foundation

  1. I have a confession to make: I left the office to go upstairs and look out the side door in the foyer. 🙂 It was so much fun to watch our Pastors put their prayer rocks into the foundation. I can tell you that it will always be a special memory for me watching their smiles and their excited steps. I hope you will all forgive me for leaving my post. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Love you all, Cindy
