I have taken a break from blogging over the last few weeks.  A lot of my time has been dedicated to converting an old auto garage into a new worship center for Echo Church.  Last night, I couldn’t help but stand there in awe of all God has done in just one short year.

I believe we would not be where we are today without one thing fueling our every move.  Prayer.  Without it, I’’m not sure we would have made it through the first month.  I wanted to share a few scriptures that ran through my mind as I drove home last night.

Ephesians 6:18
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
