Men Praying for Men

I am thankful for a place where I can not only work but a place where I can also be used by God to make a difference in the spiritual life of a person. Today this morning at 5am; we began our first prayer meeting. I have been letting clients know all week long that they are all more than welcome to come and pray for their hardships and for their loved ones. Even at 6am we always pray after each "KREY radio" session mini-devotional announcement that echoes through out the P.A. system in the facility every morning to wake up men to a God given and productive new day.
 
However, in the 5am prayer meeting we had only two clients show up for Prayer but we together, made supplications to the Lord; casting all of our cares to Him. We prayed for clients and their prayer requests posted on the wall where it says, 'Prayer Wall'. We prayed for The Mission, Men's Ministry, for each other and for our loved ones.
 
Eventhough it was not a huge turn out of men wanting to pray. I believe very strongly that God will increase it with great testimonies of answered prayers. Interestingly, Up on the same wall where it says 'prayer wall' just off to the right side, is also a much more profound statement. It reads 'MIRACLES' and the bottom of this word it says, 'Believe in them'. And in this, I believe God has provided this new men's facility so that every inch of space could be used for His Glory.
 
Especially, for this little corner 'prayer wall' located outside the med room. God is going to answer many prayers because in Romans 5:5 it delcares, "and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us." I know God will not dissapoint His people. So please pray for this little corner. That God may move on behalf of these men that will stand in faith to believe God for great things!
 
God bless you all and Shalom!

The Assistance League Assists Lydia House with Books

Open Door Mission’s Lydia House was blessed this past week with the gift of books. The Assistance League of Omaha brought over 200 pounds of books for the women and children. They brought new books for the children. The books are great stories and full of pictures to give spark to the children’s imagination. Books are a wonderful way for children and their parents to read together and share a special time. The League also collected gently used books for the adults at Lydia House. The books will go into the library so everyone has a chance to solve mysteries, travel to distance places or have a good laugh. Open Door Mission appreciates the Assistance League of Omaha for proving an enriching pastime for the children and adults at Lydia House.

If you would like to do a drive please call 402-422-1111 ext 1554. We would love to help you make a difference in the lives of others.
