This pledge closed over 1 year ago
As of last year, I've started a personal tradition of committing my birthdays to causes bigger than myself because as much as I love getting all the attention, receiving gifts, and celebrating my birthday with loved ones, I believe I was created for the betterment of others by considering their interests above mine. Last year, I ran a half-marathon and raised a total of $2,800 to build water wells in Ethiopia. I have put in a lot of thought and prayer for this year's cause and decided to call a corporate prayer and fast on behalf of Grace Extended, Grace Community Chapel's college ministry.
The ministry has been a dear part of my life ever since I stepped up as a cell group leader this past fall, and I see that God is working steadily and powerfully through its leaders and members. I want the Holy Spirit to continuously move in this ministry, uniting the staff, and brining more students on campus to Christ. My 25th birthday is this Friday, January 25th, 2013, which happens to also be the first day of the Vision Retreat. Please help me celebrate my birthday by pledging to fast at least one meal and pray for the unity amongst Grace Extended leaders and students. Because I have experienced the power and effects of corporate prayer, more than material gifts and birthday wishes, this serves as one of the best birthday gifts.
Thank you in advance for this beautiful birthday present!
