Steve is preaching the Word this Sunday.  

His text is Ecclesiastes 1:12-2:26
:


Nothing Better
---------------------
 
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This week we continue a new sermon series on Ecclesiastes. The main point last week was "Don't pretend it doesn't hurt." This book of wisdom teaches us to be real about the struggle to live in a fallen world under the sentence of death. Let's not be fooled: Christians struggle too.
As gloomy as Ecclesiastes can seem to be, you don't have to read very far before you get an answer. This week we'll study a large section, from chapter 1, verse 12 through the end of chapter 2. In verses 24-26 of chapter 2 we get an answer; a key to happiness. The main point will be: "When you feel the emptiness, open your hand to God."
Come looking to hear about why we are so often unhappy in this life, and the secret of living a life of joy.
Pray for the Lord's blessing upon our gathering, and upon the spread of the Gospel through Swedesford Road Church.
Your servant in Christ's cause,
--Steve

Let's Pray For Estonia,

Neighbors of Ukraine + Russia

President of Estonia,

------------- 
 Alar Karis ---------------

Estonia's identity and history are beautifully signified through the colors of its blue, black, and white striped flag. The blue stands for devotion, faith, and loyalty, while the black represents the country’s dark past and immense suffering. The white symbolizes a desire to aim for higher understanding and character, in addition to signifying the birch trees and snow that characterize this northern Baltic nation's beautiful landscape. Enduring a long history of occupation and oppression, Estonia now boasts one of the most successful economies of the post-Soviet nations.

 

Long dominated by surrounding nations, Estonia has seen its share of invasion, occupation, and violence. After a relatively short independence (1918-1940), it was invaded by the Soviet Union. Deportation and murder of many Estonians during this occupation left a bitter animosity towards Russians that remains to this day. As of 2013, about 70% of the population is Estonian while 20% is Russian, brought into the country during the occupation. In 1991 Estonia gained independence and shifted from communism to a democratic parliament. Estonia has shale-oil reserves, which it uses for producing energy, making it the leading energy producer for much of Latvia and northwest Russia.

 

With a history of severe persecution of all faiths between 1940-1988, 54% of Estonians now claim to be non-religious. Secularism and pluralism maintain a tight hold. Many are even being drawn to pagan religions, as well as marginal Christian sects such as Mormonism. A religiously open door in Estonia has made this nation susceptible to many false teachings, while also opening up vast opportunities for the Gospel to penetrate a spiritually devastated land. For many of the 45% of Christian Estonians, their faith holds little meaning in their daily life, and their understanding of the Gospel is limited. Re-evangelization is desperately needed. Seminaries and Bible Schools throughout the nation are working to raise up Christian leaders with a deeper understanding of the Gospel.

• Pray for the truth of God's Word to be established in a land inundated by a wide array of religious ideas.

 

• Pray for Spirit-filled believers to witness to a cynical population.

 

• Pray for wise officials to stand firm on Biblical foundations during the transition to a more Western economy.


Together let's watch and pray,
The Prayercast Team
