Simple Needs In Difficult Times

With Thanksgiving Day upon us, the holiday season too often becomes a busy and stressful time of year for many.  In this challenging economy I have witnessed my clients lose their home's equity to buyers, suffer repeated price reductions and deal with the hardship of foreclosure and short sales.  But in the midst of their struggles, God faithfully opened doors and hearts for me to minister to others His peace and encouragement to weather the storm and remain steadfast in their real estate goals.  The Secret Place and HOPE Ministry will be entering its seventh year of ministry in 2009 and with this comes an expanded vision for teaching and worship in public places.  Recently, I visited a local house of prayer and witnessed a community of believers, young and old, who were gathering daily (24/7) to pray and worship the Lord.  I immediately felt drawn to do the same.  During this time, the Lord showed me that His children want to worship and praise Him and when given the venue to do so, He will send them and they will come.  The expanded vision for HOPE Ministry is for the elevation of prayer and worship in meeting places, houses of prayer, at public gatherings and in diverse establishments.  I trust that God will provide the ministry needs to help with accomplishing this call.  Please pray about your part in this process and as you are lead, to support the ministry.

GBU!  Barbara :)
