Eileen Beer, Ivan Hawk, Dan Bergeron

Eileen - Eileen here. I pray for His kingdom to come, His will to be done in our city. The spirit of wisdom & revelation to be released - the knowledge of God would cover the earth the way the water covers the sea. Revival, unity, salvation, healing, restoration. Light, truth, hope.

Ivan - While walking on Church Street, the feeling I have is of people having a good time, but only in the moment. One young man was complaining about where he will eat. I opened my Bible to 1 Corinthians 15:29-35. In essence, St. Paul is saying that if there is no resurrection, no hope in the future, "Let us eat & drink, for tomorrow we will die." The next verse reads: "Bad company ruins good morals." My sense is of many searching, but not sure what for. We know that it is the Lord. The feelings I have are not overwhelming, but there is a definite sense of searching while living only in the moment, i.e., "Let's eat & drink."

Walking through the park I spoke to many who were sitting on the benches. Some were friendly, some were not. Most sat alone.

My overall sense of my time today goes with the words of a song by Michelle Branch, a young contemporary singer: "I'm busy on the outside, but lonely on the inside." That would summarize what I feel here on Church Street. Jesus, may they soon see You and feel Your presence. They need never to be lonely when they know You, the author of life.
