This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us — whatever we ask — we know that we have what we asked of Him. 1 John 5:14-15
John is speaking to fellow Christians and tells them they can be confident in God hearing their prayers. Knowing and praying God’s will produces the results we hope for and accomplishes His plan. A wonderful example of this is when the 2017 Christmas offering far exceeded our need! It is God’s will for SCC to reach our surrounding community and the prayers of many were answered in true God-like form.
The health of our state, county, and ultimately our world begins with community. Praying God's will for our community and for SCC’s role in achieving it, as stated in 1 John, will produce miraculous results. We can all be confident in that.
Prayer: Holy Father, we are thankful for the confidence You have given us in what we pray for. So now we come boldly before You asking these things for SCC and our relationship with our Community. We ask You to use us to do Your will! Let us see people the way You see people. When our Community looks at us may they see You.
