Pray for TexasAugust 31, 2017 | Written by Maureen Stanek
Dear BCOC Family & Bastrop Community,
Many of you have asked how you can help in this time of crisis in our state. Below are links where you can sign up to volunteer your time or help in other ways.
Thank you for caring and thank you for praying. Remember the scripture in James 5:16 today which reads,
Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].
Never minimize the power in prayer. Let’s pray for one another in Texas that our state will be healed and restored. Heartfelt and persistent prayer has tremendous power to change things.
We love you,
Pastor Scott & Maureen Stanek
