David Jamieson's Message|
Wow January was powerful, wasn't it? David Jamieson has a message for us following the 31 Days of Prayer for Renewal. His message is a call to action — something that those who read and prayed through each devotional were hoping for, something for us to grab hold of. Read his full message at www.uccsda.org/vertical-31-days-of-renewal-where-to-go-from-here.
Something for Prayer Coordinators— Response Requested
I want to meet you. I want to listen to what you are doing in your church. Would you like to do the same? You are integral to the conference and we can learn from each other.
Let's meet monthly and see how that works. It would be in a Zoom setting. We could meet for approximately one hour each month to: 1. share what is working in our churches; 2. share answers to prayer; and 3. to pray together. I think this will give new life to all prayer ministries.
Please respond with your choices, to Prayer Ministries at Prayer@uccsda.org. I will send out the results next week! Choose: One Night, One Time, and One Week of the Month.
Which night? Monday, Tuesday or Friday
What Time? 6 p.m., 6:30 p.m. or 7 p.m.
Week of Month? 2nd week? 3rd week? 4th week?

Answered Prayers and Praise
During 31 Days of Prayer we had 63 responses from people thanking us for the event or having a prayer request. There have also been some answers to prayer.
Start Your Own 31 Days of Prayer
- A request for God's blessing on a health program brought in more people than they had expected.
- Request for healing from sickness brought better health.
- A request for prayer brought reconciliation.
- An anointing for stage 4 cancer was answered. The individual believes they are healed. We are praising God and praying for a scan to reveal the miracle.
- Praise that many requests were for Salvation -- We know that prayer is answered with "Yes."
- A Prayer for a church that was languishing is being answered because the members see God's Spirit working.
- A lady who is blind is still able to Pray daily for and with her family and friends, and through this, a study group has formed and people are coming to church.
Even though it might feel like everyone already did this, the reality is that many more people will be blessed by this set of devotionals. I recommend you start a 31 Days of Prayer with your church. Perhaps the first day of a month that has 31 days. Start it with a study group or with a community group. Use the print edition (it is linked below). If you would like the Word edition so you can edit the name of the church or group, just email me at email@example.com.
