2006-02-02: Pray for the beauty of holiness to be formed in us.

Heavenly Father,

As I think about the green grass of Emerald Hills, I am reminded of the newness of life we have through Your Son, Jesus Christ.  His shed blood has made us righteous.  He has shown us the Way; He has given us the Truth.  Now, Father, help us to obey this Truth so that the beauty of God’s holiness might be formed in us.

May the beauty of God’s holiness also be formed at Emerald Hills, dear Father.  May Emerald Hills always be a place dedicated to the Truth, the Way, and the Life through Jesus Christ.  I pray, Father, that those who come to this place will go away better for having been there.  I pray that many of those who leave Emerald Hills will go to the farthest parts of the world carrying the message of redemption through Your Son. 

In the Name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
