We will bow our hearts in prayer on December 5 (time to be announced) in a conference call, as the Black and Reformed Leadership Network continues to unite, minister and grow in our calling. 

Each one of us is called to serve in the CRCNA in local and global missions and in denominational contexts. We are needed in various areas of ministry.

We are joining God on His mission and discerning where the Holy Spirit is moving. We are seeking God's help in fulfilling our calling. 

With this in mind, I'm bringing a request to our prayer group to ask God for wisdom in identifying, connecting and mentoring the next generation of Black leaders. In James 1:5-6 it says, "If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you.  But ask in faith, never doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind." RSV

What else might we bring to the Lord in prayer? 


Develop answers about the  Black African History within the RCA.

Create a plan to teach this history within the Sunday School curriculum. 

Center this effort explaining the role of prayer.

Hi Fronse,

Thanks for taking time to make comments on Kneeling in Prayer.  During our time in prayer we prayed for our churches, communities and denomination as we serve together in reaching the world for Christ.

As a people, we're definitely making an impact in the overall mission of the CRCNA. 

In regards to the ideas you mentioned in the comment section, it will be up to churches and ministries to create space for these discussions and learning opportunities based on their ministry context.   We're fortunate to have several resources available in the CRC and RCA. 

We'll continue to pray for God's guidance and power as we serve in kingdom building.  Thanks again.
