Lord of all creation - I come to You now in the name of this Jesus I have heard about.  I was born into a sinful world and have lived in ignorance and rebellion to Your truth.  Jesus, I accept You as God manifested in the flesh, born as an offering for my sins.  Born to pay the price I am unable to pay - the price required for restored fellowship with my Creator.  Please forgive me and make me a vessel fit for Your use.  I release any bitterness or unforgiveness in my heart and ask You to deal with those situations.  I believe You were born of a virgin, died on the cross, rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven and are now sitting at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for me.

You are now Lord of my life.

Confess Jesus before men and He will confess you before the Father.

Our precious friend Paula went to be with the Lord in June of 2017. Although we love and miss her, we sorrow not as those who have no hope. We trust she is there with the other cloud of witnesses, urging us on in our race. May we all continue to lift up our Jesus as we strive for unity of the faith . . . the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. We are complete in Him.

In 1999 the Lord led Paula to incorporate Paula Rayburn Ministries and begin Ministry of Prayer. How does one begin to contemplate such a decision. There was the inner assurance that her's was to be a life of ministry and she was prepared to go wherever He would lead. She had learned to know her Father's voice and she would follow through all obstacles put in her path.

God was so gracious and used the most inexperienced people to help the ministry become recognized as a 501c3 non-profit organization by the government. It's not that there were any expectations of great donors that would need a tax deduction. It was just the first few steps down the path that was laid out before her.

The beginnings were simple. Paula was living the witness and God was bringing people across her path. There was much individual praying and counseling. Just a tank of gas helped many through a difficult time. Paula has always been recognized as a strong Christian and people seek her out for her discernment and prayers. Friends and neighbors began to gather at her home for prayer and a regular schedule of such events were begun.

The small planting of seeds began to bear fruit. Paula has always strived to be obedient to what the Lord would have her do. Just as he gave her the vision of Ministry of Prayer, one day He also gave her a vision to begin Peach Orchard Park - housing for abused women and their children. God gave her the vision and as she stepped out in faith, He began the fulfillment. She received the vision by faith and believed God would perform what He had shown her. Our God does not do anything in vain, but it is up to each of us to receive and believe. It is our faith that God justifies. God doesn't force any of us into anything.

We now also have a wonderful world outreach program that God is using to save and bless people across the globe. The internet has allowed us to meet people that would never have been possible before. We believe it is God who directs people to our website - not any great design or search engines. God knows the end from the beginning and He brings us together for His purposes.

I don't believe Paula ever thought her small beginnings would grow to touch so many lives. And I know she doesn't think any of it has come about because of her hard work or worthiness. But she doesn't put any limits on God. The same Jesus who came and suffered to redeem us unto Himself, desires to live in us and move through us. I can do all things through Christ who strengths me. WE can do all things through Jesus Christ. Won't you let Him use you also? All it takes is - here am I Lord, use me.
