Effective Prayer – CAC Friday Communique, 11/30/12

Greetings, in Jesus’ precious Name!

I hope you are still rejoicing and following through with a deeper prayer life following our midweek churchwide family prayer meeting. The quote that I read during prayer meeting is far too important to leave it there. Please allow me to share it again, this time in written form. Also, I’ll expand it somewhat. It goes like this:

“Too often Christians assume prayer is primarily about us telling God what we think he should do. In reality, prayer is primarily about what God has to say to us. If we will spend more time in God’s presence and ask him to reveal his will to us through prayer, we are sure to be overwhelmed by what God has to say!

“Do you want a prayer time where you sense the profound reality of God’s presence? Do you want to hear God revealed to you the awesome things on his heart? Then you must conduct yourself in a manner befitting an audience with your creator. Stumbling into God’s presence, your mind swirling with concerns about your business will not suffice. Spiritual concentration requires time and preparation.

“Spiritual concentration means looking for the relationship between our prayers and the ensuing events. Those who pay attention will discover God is far more involved in their daily lives than they ever imagined.” –Henry and Richard Blackaby in Hearing God’s Voice

May God bring us–as a representation of his very presence on the earth, the body of Christ–into greater perfection and alignment with his revelation and purpose than ever before! CAC Family, God is still in the business of “the perfecting of the Saints.” This is only possible through spiritual disciplines such as prayer, fasting, and the Word.

Here’s hoping that your workweek is wrapping up blessed and profitable, especially in the spiritual. (See 3rd John 1:2).

If you’re involved in the area of worship facilitation at CAC through voice, music or audio/visual, the next few weeks will be especially packed with fellowship and elevation in excellence. Stay tuned to the http://www.cacdenver.org calendar to stay up-to-date. We’re in for three powerful and dynamic Sundays with our guest, Bro. Mark Yandris!

I’d like to thank Bro. Anthony Lovato, Sis. Jeannette Doolittle, Bro. Ray Cuellar, and the Academy High School for helping process the mailing of our “Coming Home for the Holidays” personal letter to upwards of 150 previous guests at CAC. Please join me in fervent prayers for the return and restoration of countless souls at this great event on Sunday, December 9th.

Have a beautiful Friday walking with our Best Friend, Jesus Christ!

God bless you and yours,

Pastor D. E. Haymon II

Senior Pastor Don Haymon II began his journey as a minister when he was raised in the home of the founder of Calvary Apostolic Church—his father. In 1986 he concluded a four-year internship under his father as associate pastor. It was at that time that he received his ordination certificate as a minister of the gospel. He married LaRonda Ellard, in 1992. He earned a bachelor of arts in Communication from the University of Denver the same year. In 1997, Don became senior pastor. In 2013 he graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Christian Leadership from Hope International University. Today, he is the passionate shepherd of Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver, guided by a compelling and true call of God. For those in his pastoral care, he seeks personal development and spiritual growth as a priority. His preaching and teaching has taken him around the world to at least 10 countries. Under his leadership, he has founded six churches in Burma. The challenge of communicating the Acts 2:38 gospel worldwide remains his heartbeat as well as the constant growth pattern of the local church in Denver. He and LaRonda are the parents of three grown children. They reside in Castle Rock, CO.
