A Day for Prayer


“He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals His thoughts to man,

 He who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places of the earth—

the LORD God Almighty is His Name.” 
—Amos 4:13 NIV


Thursday, May 4 is a day designated as the National Day of Prayer. It is a day that many across the United States will set aside for prayer and here at Lakeside Community Presbyterian Church we are going to take time to pray for our needs here in Lakeside, in our Nation and in our World.


Let me invite you to two different events:

  • The first is a prayer walk for our town of Lakeside. We will meet at church 12pm at then go on a Prayer Walk pausing to pray for our local needs, for the SD Sheriff and the substation here in Lakeside, praying for our local businesses as we walk down Maine Ave., and praying for families as we walk to Lindo Lake Park.
  • The second is an Evening Prayer Gathering starting at 6pm in the church sanctuary. Join others as we pray for personal needs – for healing, for relationships, for finances, etc. and as we pray for the needs of our church – for a zeal for sharing Jesus with others, a deepening commitment to love one another, for making disciples of Christ and carrying out the mission that God has called us to here in Lakeside.


Come and join us for one or both of these times of prayer as we humble ourselves and come to the Lord God Almighty.

That which was from the beginning, 

which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, 

which we have looked at and our hands have touched—

this we proclaim concerning the Word of life.”

1 John 1:1 (NIV)


Knowing what we believe is an important part of being a disciple of Jesus. We need to know what we believe, what are the fundamentals, the basics.


This Sunday we begin a new sermon series entitled, The Basics, that will explore the basics of the Christian faith as we look at the letter that the Apostle John wrote and learn what are the basics of being a disciple of Jesus.


I hope that you can attend (or watch online) as we learn what are the basics of the Christian faith and how that will help us to live as Christ followers in our world.


Have a great rest of the week.
