Conference Call Update

Howdy folks? Trusting that all’s well. The Early Risers’ Call (TERC) will be starting in February (I think), God willing. It’s about time we took authority over everyday the Lord has blessed us with. I got the conference dial in # and the access code; we’re good to start now but we still need to take care of some business. Unfortunately, the number isn’t toll free and it’s only open to those residing in the United States. I figured if we set the time of the devotion to anytime before 7 a.m., it should be free for most people since most cell phone companies don’t start charging until after 7.

This is the idea I have and please feel free to make suggestions.
The devotion will be 5 days a week (M-F) from 5 a.m. to 6a.m. EST
At the beginning, someone would share a bible verse/ passage (not too lengthy) and explain it briefly for about 15 minutes
Then we ask for prayer requests for 5 minutes
Sing a worship song
Then we pray individually for about 10 minutes
Someone then rounds up, combining the various prayer requests

That’s my 2 kobo, but like I said earlier nothing’s set in stone. Everything’s subject to change under the leading of the Holy Spirit. I’d like to know those interested in participating. Like the Psalmist said, "except the Lord builds a house, they labor in vain who build it, unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain."
Bearing this in mind, I’d like to ask that before we start in February, each one of us should pray that the purpose for which TERC was started will be achieved. We won’t lose our focus which is individual spiritual growth and that we’d help each other grow in our walk with God. Please, before u even indicate your interest in being a part of TERC, just say a word of prayer.

Dial in #: 605- 990- 0100
Access Code: 161292#
That’s it folks. Hope y’all have a blessed weekend.

FIRST!!!

Cherub, see as all these devil pikins ran away from you @ the mention of Prayer, lol. But I, God's personal soul mate, I am here. When do you start this thing again? I'll write the number down.

By the way, what about time difference? I mean, I'm with easter time, but what of people in places like Cali and Texas??

I had to do my prayer before leaving a message -- I am so in - really looking forward to it. Rising at 5am right. Ok - I will need to start going to bed a litle earlier.

Really loving the idea. Have a good weekend.

Ms. Bijou, this is a big responsibility that you have taken on, and i pray that it is a SUCCESS.
God bless!

9ja Opeke said...

This is really a wonderful idea...so that instead of using the blog to only blah! blah!! blah!!! we can also use it to glorify the name of God.
God bless you, Cherub

That's the real 9ja in us talking...

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

@Vera: We'll take care of the time difference. Those with EST can start it off now, then we'll work som'n out for the other time zones.

@LOASCM, BIBI, DIAMOND,MSMT: Okay ladies (i think y'all are ladies), we'll start off Feb. 1st, God willing.

@ChiefO: Let blogsville people show u pepper. It's not a popularity contest or anything, those who are down with our goal/ mission can join.

@Nilla: Please, do uphold us in ur prayers, and pray about joining. U need to jog my memory a lil' bit or email me 'cos i'm clueless as to what u're saying.

@Belle: I have no doubt that it'll be successful. I don't consider it a "big responsibility" 'cos all we're doing is fellowshipping together via phone, which we do individually anyway.

@9ja opeke: God bless you too!

@Overwhelmed: Gathering together to call upon the name of God is always a wonderful idea. How've u been, missy?

@Diamond: U'll hear from me tonite madam.

@MSMT: All the best with ur rotations. OB/GYN hmmm, heard a lot about it. Anyways, i look forward to reading aome "gross" stories about it on ur blog.
