A Time to Pray

Join me and thousands of others as we cry  out to God for His highest desires to be realized through the ministries and lives of the Moody Bible Institute

  • Pray for the godly interim leadership team – The following is a quote that a colleague of mine wrote about the interim President-“ I am especially pleased that Greg Thornton will serve as interim president. In the 24 years that I have known Greg, I have found him to be one of the most caring, thoughtful, and servant oriented leaders I have ever encountered. One particular incident epitomizes this for me. I was attending a meeting that had been called by Greg several years ago. At one point someone got up from the table and started refreshing everyone’s water glasses. I was startled to realize that it was Greg, the highest ranking person in the room. He didn’t do this to make a point about servant leadership. He did it because the glasses were empty. It was so natural that it was practically invisible. At that point I thought to myself, “This is somebody I ought to get to know.” As a colleague who has known Greg much longer than I have said to me yesterday: “I would trust him with my life.”

  • Pray for the godly students who in a recent  prayer and worship chapel broke out in spontaneous praise even after the chapel has finished.

  • Pray for all who faithfully and sacrificially serve Christ here and for God to open doors of ministry for those whose contracts will not be  renewed due to financial challenges.

  • Pray for God to bless all that faithfully and sacrificially support the ministry in prayer and finances.

I am not the one to ask about the latest rumors from social media  but I am grateful for the privilege to serve Christ here and for the people I serve with and the amazing students He bring to us.
