    Action for You

    Praying with intention

    Do you often pray like this?

    Praying with Intention; Heartlands Autumn 2022
    • God bless Mary
    • Lord, please look after my son
    • Jesus, can you please stop all wars
    • Father, give me a good life

    These are all good prayers, and quite legitimate, but they are so general! They are all “motherhood prayers” – prayers so broad it is impossible to know if God truly answers them.

    Instead, pray with intention. Fill those prayers with meaning and talk to God about what worries you. And, when prompted, follow up your prayer with action. Relationship is critical to answered prayer.

    How different are these prayers to those above?

    • God, how can I bless Mary today?
    • Lord, give me wisdom as I call my son, so I can encourage him.
    • Jesus, I pray about the war in Ukraine. Is there something I can do to assist?
    • Father, help me to love and care for others around me, even if my life is not so good.

    It’s a time to be the blessing!

    Women’s ministry at Beauty Point

    By Rachelle Hawkins

    Since the The Point* Baptist’s inception in 2006, we have endeavoured to hold many outreach events to reach our town of Beauty Point.

    The message is always about who Jesus is, and why it’s important. These events include men’s dinners, women’s dessert nights, concerts, kids’ clubs, and an annual visit by Texan missionaries who do all the above, and more.

    We, as a church, long to share the hope Jesus offers.

    The Science of Seeing God

    ANNETTE SPURR, Heartlands Autumn 2022

    Gratitude and thankfulness for the World, the Universe, and Everything!

    By A.J. Spurr

    Recently, I interviewed a young man who had been struggling with addiction since the age of 12. He had completed a program at a Christian rehab centre, and while he was there, he encountered Jesus.

    “The first thing I noticed,” he said, “was that I could feel the breeze on my skin. I’d never experienced it before, even though it had been happening the whole time. I was finally able to feel it.”

    So, what had changed?
