PRAYER FOCUS FOR THE MONTH:
Oh God, our Heavenly Father, we come to meet with you today, to worship You in spirit and in truth. Just as we are, forgive and cleanse us from all that offends you. In your presence we shall gain strength that sustains us; we shall gain direction for our lives and understanding that guides our decisions. You are our God, the center of our joy. We shall hope in your promises. Help us ever to be attentive to your voice and live in obedience to your will, which is best for us. It is in the strong name of Jesus we pray. Amen!

This Week at Mount Zion
Bible Study: All are welcome to the
"Word of Life"
Bible Study Class every Wednesday morning at 11:45 & Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm. Continued study on News; Watch the Bible in 30 days. A weekly series showing Sndays at 8pm on the History Channel; sermons will concide with the series.
Good morning to you.
There are many people facing emptiness. The "junk food" of society's entertainments, or making it big in some career has only led to joyless, semi depressed, fruitless, complaining, unsatisfied, unfulfilled living.
There is a call to prayer. On Sunday Nov. 10th at 4pm you are invited by God to gather together in unity with other brothers and sisters of the Mount Zion Baptist Church Community of faith to pray.
Bread of Heaven, fill us with your Spirit and with the spiritually nourishing food vital for soul satisfaction and fulfillment that we can serve in your purpose for our lives.
It is that we call on and in the name of God in prayer because we believe deeply that God by divine power can intervene and transform our circumstances.
Please begin today writing down the name(s) of those you know who need The Lord to intervene in their life situation, perhaps even bring salvation to their soul. Begin to pray that the Holy Spirit move upon them and draw their heart towards faith and trust; that they would surrender their soul and situation to The Lord Jesus.
During the prayer service, as you lift up your own name and need before the Lord, the gathered community of believers will pray for the individual(s) you know need a life changing encounter with God.
As we gather Sunday November 10th at 4pm in the Sanctuary, come with expectation as you enter into the presence of the God of all grace, mercy, healing, deliverance, and love.
Pastor Philip K. James

Let us faithfully attend worship each Sunday; let us commit to giving our tithes; let us commit to attending Bible Study Class on Wednesdays; let us show God how much we as a church family love and appreciate Him being at work in us by coming together during “Gratitude Month.” Make a sacrifice to the glory of God! God will bless your life in even more extraordinary ways! Expect It!
