We were privileged to lead America into prayer yesterday. We began with the Island Prayer Breakfast led by the island’s military chaplains, including guard chaplain and PIU graduate, Lt. John Tomada (right). The Guam Ministerial Association pastors were invited to the event and I was privileged to join them (left). Thank you Liann for the nice sunset and Bible picture at the top of the post.

The sermon by Navy Commander Timothy Moore was excellent. He called out the island churches to reflect the love and unity Christ called for in John 13-17.

I love the freedom to be able to do this right on Marine Drive as traffic is going by. We pray for various aspects of life on our island and nation. This year I was assigned to pray for government and prayed that government would reflect Christ based on Psalm 72. GMA president, and Calvary Baptist pastor, Rob Puckett MC’d the service and got things started. Though the crowd started small, by the time  it was dark we had a good group out.

We ended the service with a final “cell-phone light” worship. You can see the traffic lights in the background. This is the view from the stage.
