Morning by Morning, January 17 - Friends Refresh My Spirit
Good morning, Lord Jesus. In these first moments of my morning, help me focus on You and press in to Your Presence. ...
"I rejoice at the coming of Staphanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they have made up for your absence, for they refreshed my spirit as well as yours. So give recognition to such persons" (1 Corinthians 16:17-18).
Thank You for my friends who refresh my spirit. By their words, they bless me; by their prayers, they cover me; by their thoughtfulness, they encourage me. Whether personally in their presence or more remotely through the nearly-infinite media of communication, I'm so grateful for the faithful friends of faith and joyful companions on the journey who inspire and challenge me, as they refresh and encourage me, to be all You've created me to be and called me to do. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
My friends, thank you for your friendship and companionship with me in the journey of prayer. May you be refreshed in your spirit by those the Lord has called into your life and accross your path. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
This Weekend, I'll be back in Kentucky leading a Spiritual Renewal Weekend at Bagby Memorial United Methodist Church in Grayson, Kentucky, January 18-20 with my good friend Pastor Susan Elkow (http://bagbyumc.org/events.php). Come join us if you can!
I'm really excited to be invited to speak on The Healing Nature of Jesus during "An Evening of Healing" with Max Lucado at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio Wednesday Night, February 6 at 7pm. Please come join us if you can (www.oakhillschurch.com).
Starting Thursday Night, January 31, we will begin a 6 Week Level 1 School of Ministry for Sozo Inner Healing Prayer Ministry Training, at our ministry office at Rapha God Ministries in San Antonio. Please come join us; seating is limited (www.RaphaGodMinistries.com)
In this new season, I will still be leading Messiah Ministries, but also joining in leadership as the Pastoral Director of Rapha God Ministries based in San Antonio, Texas, continuing my calling of equipping and ministry of inner healing -- healing from the inside out -- to see God's people set from from their past and awakened to their identity and destiny in Christ. I'll also continue to share these morning prayers, teach our 4 Day Schools in Kentucky and elsewhere, and still travel to speak and minister as the Lord leads with the relationships we've established and the new ones to be formed, at home and abroad.
For a few months of transition, the Messiah Ministries mailing address in Lexington will remain the same, but I will be moving into my new office and the new base for ministry will be at: 4 Dominion Drive, Building 1; San Antonio, Texas 78257 www.RaphaGodMinistries.com
God bless you and thank you for all your prayers and friendship!
