- Is it possible to enter “his presence/courts” without singing, really singing?

WHAT I SEE
- This week take seriously one of the below challenges:
- This week commit to read/pray with/from/through 1 John chapter 1.
- Go to next week’s CARE sheet usually posted on Thursdays and then read/pray the Scriptures to be used in the sermon. http://www.dougdelp.wordpress.com
- Buy the book (“Face to Face: Praying the Scriptures for Intimate Worship”) and commit to at least one month of praying through Scripture. [Oct. 25—Nov. 26, Thanksgiving]
- Check out this website knowing only the Scripture is inspired and man’s interpretation and application always needs to be checked with the Bible (Acts 17:11). http://www.pray-the-scriptures.com
