God First is not only the title of this Stewardship Revival Week, but it expresses the belief and behavior of all who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and choose to live to glorify Him.

In all that we do (and this Week of Prayer is no exception), we envision people putting God first in their lives. We pray these materials are a blessing!
In Revelation 3:14-22 we find the appeal to the church of Laodicea and to the church living at the end of time. That's us! God intends that this message be understood and that it change us into an on-fire, Holy Spirit filled, group of people who love God more than life itself, who are willing to lay down all for Him. Many have been blessed by the popular download "Clearing the Way for the Holy Spirit" by Scott Griswold. As you study his next Bible study series, "Love Letter to Laodicea," we pray that God will do an even deeper work in your heart. Let's also pray that God will help the church to understand and live this message, and not be lukewarm any longer.
It's easy to complain about your pastor or about things that don't seem to be going right, but have you ever spent time earnestly fasting and pleading with God for your pastor, for your church, for fellow church members, or for those in positions of leadership? Have you prayed prayers that go beyond “please bless my church” to "please save those who attend my church! Please save me!?" Heartfelt prayers pleading with God for healing, hope, and effective witness in an age of lukewarm laodicean Christianity?

The 2022 International Women's Day of Prayer resource packet "Praying in the Last Days" is written by Cindy Tutsch, D.Min. Her sermon focuses on the need for prayer in the last days before Joshua entered the Promised Land. How do we find peace and comfort in these uncertain times? We must connect to God in prayer. Even when we feel empty, lonely, afraid, hopeless, we must tell Him how we feel. If this is how you feel, ask Him right now to fill you with strength, courage, joy, and peace of mind. The accompanying seminar "Why Prayer Matters" is also written by Dr. Cindy Tutsch. All materials provided through the General Conference Women's Ministries.
