Pray Today Please...

Three days ago we were asked to lead a church service for this next sunday. We have not actually been to the church for a sunday service; but, we have been with the pastor and a few student members, working alongside them to go to the universities all week. We have come to realize that this church is quite different from what we are used to and comfortable with. They are a bit on the charismatic side. Sam, John and Ryan are leading music, Scott, Stephanie and I (sarah) are sharing testimonies, and then Ryan will be preaching as well. We are all pretty nervous. These people are used to services a bit crazier then what we are used to. We would prefer not to bore them to death. Pray that we could be used powerfully to speak truth into the lives of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Pray that we would not withhold truth out of fear of contradicting an idea they may have. Ask that the Holy Spirit would be evident among us to this body. The service will start at 10 am our time so that would be 9:30 pm your time. Please be praying. We'll be sure to let you know how it goes. Thanks so much for your prayers, they are greatly greatly appreciated :)
