May the Lord most high -- the Creator of all things -- draw you near to Himself today!
Some of Jesus' promises are outlandish, aren't they? Take, for example, "Again I say to you that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven" (Matthew 18:19). That is an amazing promise. But it is His promise to us. Will you agree together with us?
- God blessed this ministry in spectacular ways in 2013. We were able to release a new book (Worship In Heaven and Why On Earth It Matters) and a new DVD curriculum for small groups (Worship: Our Highest Calling). Ministry opportunities abounded from Florida to Washington state, including the first ever ministry trip to Utah. Thank God for allowing us to be involved in such fruitful ministry!
- As of this writing, our finicial picture has not improved. We currently have no ministry events (the primary source of the ministry's income) scheduled for more than two months. The lower-than-usual number of events scheduled after that give us cause for concern. The Apostle Paul asked the church at Colossae, "Pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message" (Colossians 4:3). Please pray that for us. Also, please keep praying that God supplies our needs and gives us the necessary guidance to make any adjustments that are needed.
- I have also begun working on a new colaborative book project. It's too early to give details, but I believe this could be really helpful for training the next generation of worship leaders. Pray that we are able to get in touch with the right people to make this book as effective as possible, and also pray that those people respond positively.
- Please also pray for our dear friend and technology consultant, Phil Mahder. Phil helps churches with tech issues like sound, video and lighting. Please pray that God would continue to open doors to connect Phil with the churches that he can bless with his gifts and that will also be a blessing to him.

Thank you so much for your prayers. The things that happened this year -- the resources and teaching from this ministry -- could not have happened without your prayers. What you do makes this ministry far more effective than we would be otherwise. Thanks for taking the time to pray!
