Episcopal Letter from Bishop James E. Swanson Sr.

Episcopal Letter
40 Day Prayer Journey Begins Tomorrow

Dear Friends:

Tomorrow, February 23, 2010, marks the beginning of Forty Days of Prayer by the people of the Holston Conference United Methodist Churches. It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit might prepare and equip us to communicate in an invitational way to our friends, acquaintances and those strangers among us God’s desire to be in relationship with all persons.

Please join me in this Forty Day Prayer Journey that begins February 23, and ends forty days later. I believe if we will join our voices and hearts in conversation with God, our Lord will hear and empower our lives that we may point people to Jesus.

“And now O Lord, come among us and give us a desire to be in dialogue with you that our witness may be strong, attractive, and convincing so that those who come into contact with us may see and desire to be in relationship with you.” AMEN

Yours in Christ,

James E. Swanson, Sr.
Resident Bishop, Holston Episcopal Area

February 22, 2010

  2. Ronnie, I’m already praying that we’ll reach and share with unsaved people here in Maryville. I’m looking forward to the devotions inspired by Harry Denman.

    I was really encouraged at the Evangelism Conference this past weekend.

    Blessings on you.
