Listen…. that is what I hear God calling me to.  A season of listening.  I find the best way to listen is to spend time with the Lord… and then be quiet.  (Which isn’t always easy for me…) 

I also know that God uses his people to speak to one another. 

As we begin final preparations for COMPEL 2012, I’m going to ask each of you to join our leadership team in prayer.  We have a daily prayer guide that we follow, and I’d like to share with each of you…

Today we are paying for Mailings and Fiscal provision and web site registration…

So join us in lifting up those things.  Typcially everyone waits to register until the last week or two, which is VERY nerve racking for us to not know if we are planningn on 200 or 500…  But, God always provides.  So pray that God would lead ladies to sign up this week.  That when they get online that they can easily follow the process.  Also pray that area churches will put out the material and promote it…

Pray for the finances.  Each year we barely “break even” and what ever bit in the black we are we try to donate to another non-profit.  With costs of speakers and food increasing we found it necessary to increase the price this year.  Pray that it wouldn’t be restrictive for any who would desire to attend. Pray for supernatural provision in the finances. 

Last week I mailed letters to the tv and radio stations hoping for some “free” coverage leading up to the event.  Pray that at least some of them are moved to include it.  This week I’ll be sending out a mailing to area newspapers…  Pray they would feel moved ot include in their next addition.

 And everyday… we pray for those who are going to attend.  That they would be moved by Him.  And that each lady would listen to the promptings of the Lord for them to join us. 

As you join us in prayer… please listen for the Lord.  Sit in expectation of him being with you.  And share what you feel moved to share with us! 

This isn’t “our” conference.  It is HIS…  We want to be in his will.  Prepare our hearts now Lord…
