CLA Prayer Update

Dear Praying Ones,

Praises…

1. We are so glad to have a holiday celebrating Thanksgiving to God. He has been so good to us by granting us our biggest need (a Savior).
2. Our teachers have been such a blessing to us. They carry out the mission daily by loving God and loving our children.
3. The financial needs and facility needs of CLA are met to date. Thank God for providing our daily bread.
4. The board and fund raising team got some very insightful and helpful feedback from a donor survey.
5. God has given us so many wise counselors. Pray that He will continue to provide as we look to expand our advisors.
6. The discipline policy has been clarified. Please pray that our teachers and students can be gracious as we seek to glorify God through disciplined living.
7. Praise God for the impact that Martin Luther had on the Kingdom. He emphasized the authority of Scripture, and salvation by grace through faith in Christ to the glory of God.
Requests…
1. The State Fire Marshal has returned our submitted plans as “not approved.” They gave us a list of items that need to be addressed before the plans can be approved. Please pray for the architect, and our board as we look at these issues. We need God’s wisdom.
2. There are many health related prayer requests in the CLA family. Please pray for God’s healing and comfort.
3. The board has scheduled a retreat this January to focus on an Academic Strategic plan. Mrs. Kennedy has been so helpful, and we are excited to look at the academic future of CLA.
4. The CLA board desires to bless our faculty with a Christmas bonus. They did not receive a raise this year, and God led us to do this instead. The Christmas bonus is not a line item on our budget, so we are praying that God will meet this financial need through donations.
5. Pray for Sarah Holmes (director of institutional development) as she seeks to formulate a recruiting plan for new like minded families to join us.
6. We deeply desire to see revival in our region. May God open our community’s eyes to the Gospel.
7. The board is pursuing another board member. Please pray for this person that is prayerfully considering this opportunity to serve.
Sunday’s worship song was so good. The words were written by Charles Wesley in 1738. If you’d like to search for it, it is entitled “And Can It Be That I Should Gain” by recorded by Sovereign Grace Music. Although a simple search turned up a different arrangement, you will likely be familiar with the traditional hymn.
Verse 1:
And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Savior’s blood
Died He for me, who caused His pain
For me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love! How can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
Amazing love! How can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
Verse 2:
He left His Father’s throne above
So free, so infinite His grace
Emptied Himself of all but love
And bled for Adam’s helpless race
“Tis mercy all, immense and free
For O my God, it found out me!
Amazing love! How can it be,
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
Verse 3:
Long my imprisoned spirit lay,
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light
My chains fell off, my heart was free
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee
Amazing love! How can it be,
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
Verse 4:
No condemnation now I dread
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine
Alive in Him, my living Head
And clothed in righteousness divine
Bold I approach the eternal throne
And claim the crown, through Christ my own
Amazing love! How can it be,
That Thou, my God, shouldest die for me?
