I just prayed two nights ago that God would provide for every one of our needs. I specifically prayed that he would send people to partner with us financially in a way that would make our jaw drop. Fund raising is a necessary part of church planting. We still raise our entire salary each month, as well as the expenses of running Center City Church. My prayer – and I wrote it down – was that God would send us shocking support.

I went to the mailbox yesterday and my jaw dropped. A two thousand dollar check was sitting in there from a church in New Jersey. Shocking.

God knows every one of our needs and knows how to provide. Perfectly. This never, ever gets old.
