Here’s a recent quote we shared on our Facebook page sent to us by Pastor Terri Brown:
“No amount of regret changes the past. No amount of anxiety changes the future, but any amount of gratitude changes the present.” – Marc and Angel Chernoff
We agree and a spirit of gratitude and thanksgiving can change the atmosphere in any environment. As followers of Jesus we are the most hopeful of all people and the future is always much brighter than our adversary tries to paint on the canvas of our lives.
CIRCLE THE DATE . . .
Saturday, December 17, the Gateway Prayer Garden Welcome Center will host a Christmas Open House from 11 am to 2 pm. Come and celebrate the goodness of God and share some Kingdom fellowship! You’ll be excited to see some designs for the planned Worship and Prayer Center ministry building as well ! *** Pray with us for a Site Superintendent to build out God’s plans for the Garden as He continues to reveal them to us.
AUDREY’S MISSION TRIP TO INDIA . . .
Audrey and her team’s recent trip to India was so significant she is planning to return again during the month of January. She would value your prayers as she makes preparations for this time over a very busy upcoming holiday season.
OUR FRIENDS IN PUEBLO NEED HELP . . .
At the Gateway Prayer Garden we take very seriously the effects of abortion in our state and local communities. To date, every attempt to restrict this odious and unrestricted practice in Colorado has been rebuffed by the state government. Presently there is a late-term abortionist attempting to set up a “death camp” in Pueblo and the local faith community is rising to stop it from occurring.
We will put more details and continuous updates on our Facebook page for your participation in this most important effort on the Front Range.
What is historic is the leadership of two courageous City Council members in this effort and the battle is just beginning. Our Garden team is providing support by praying, participating, and linking with others in the pro-life community across the state. Now that Roe vs. Wade has been overturned by the US Supreme Court, attention has shifted to the states. The roots of this culture of death began in Colorado in 1967 - well before the Roe vs Wade decision – a fact most people are unaware of.
ELECTIONS ARE OVER FOR THE MOMENT . . .
In our last newsletter we encouraged you to vote. What has emerged in many media outlets even more forcefully since November 8th is the corruption that occurred across multiple states in the voting process. Many questions remain and voters aren’t sure what to believe in terms of election results. In some cities, votes are still being counted!
Hundreds of thousands of believers across the nation have been praying and continue to that the “hidden things” in the nation would be exposed. We pray that this will occur is such a way that only God will be recognized for making it happen.
It’s possible that the night gets darker before the dawn as our adversary is hard at work to destroy our country. We don’t know. At the Prayer Garden we believe that what some are calling a domestic and international “reset” in the nations will be upended by a “heaven-sent reset” of the Kingdom of God.
WINTER OUTREACH . . .
Lest you think our Garden activities and outreach have stopped because of weather and the Tent of Meeting taken down, look at what’s coming:
• Outreach to churches in El Paso County informing them about the Garden with a brief video presentation.
• Continued linking and partnering with leaders in the 7 Mountains of influence in the Front Range.
• Architectural plans and drawings are being worked on for the Worship and Prayer Center that will provide year-round activity in fulfilling our mission of ministering on-site to visitors and into the nations.
