Jeremiah 33:3 “Call on Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
 How is your prayer life going? Are you tuned in with God? Or is your prayer life full of static that the only time that God hears from you is when you’re in dire need for something?
God says in His word that “if we call on Him, He will answer and tell us great things.” God has called His people to REPENT and SEEK His face and to turn from their wicked ways and the promise of this is that He will hear from Heaven, forgive our sins and heal our land (2nd Chronicles 7:14).
Truly meditate and focus on this verse again…God is serious about the conditions of our prayer life and the condition of our land. “If you humble yourselves”…God wants His people in a state of BROKENESS before Him. “If you will pray and seek My face”…the sense of URGENCY. And “if you turn from your wicked way”…a state of HOLINESS. Look at the great promise God gives when His people Humble themselves and Pray and Seek His face and Turn from their wicked ways…look at the promise He gives us…He will HEAR us and HE will FORGIVE our sins and HEAL our land. What an awesome promise.
God has given His challenge to Copeland Baptist Church and through our Humbleness, Urgency and Holiness, God will heal this city, but the great challenge for us is this…Are we ready to be humbled and do we have the sense of urgency it will take to shake the foundation of this city. God has empowered us and commissioned us as His Holy people, so with that being said, now it’s time to GO! This is God’s command, not mine.
Every Tuesday evening, several of us go out and reach our community. We do this by personal visits, prayer driving or by prayer walking. We are trying to be a church that’s VISIBLE not invisible. Come join us at 6 o’clock and let’s show our community we really do care for them…you won’t be disappointed!
 
Standing in the GAP,
