I am sure with everything that is happening, whether we see it or not, that the foundations are shaking for many current members. I know that many of us have friends and family members that still attend Mars Hill. Please join me in praying specifically for the members and staff this week.
Here are specific ways we are praying, (from our Pray Page):
- That God would give us wisdom and discernment in administrating this blog
- That our hearts would stay humble and our intentions pure
- That God would help us to forgive the CG leader, pastor, and friends who hurt us and have shunned us.
- That He would bring closure where possible and healing where necessary.
- That they would find the truth that sets them free
- That they would find healing and comfort in Christ and a healthy place to worship
- For those who are starting to have red flags but have not begun their exodus, that the Holy Spirit would guide them in all truth and give them wisdom
- For the families who have been harmed because a loved one has cut them off since joining Mars Hill
For Mark Driscoll & Mars Hill:
- That Mark would come to truly experience what GRACE means and be set free from the law.
- That he would repent and take responsibility for his twisting of the Word and for the abuses that happen under his leadership.
- That people who have been deceived for years would begin to see the problems with Mars Hill's structure and find their way out.
- For those who have not yet signed the "Membership Covenant"...that they would prayerfully search the Word and discern for themselves what is biblical.
- That members would come to know the GRACE, LOVE, MERCY and kindness of God.
