Dedication of the Cars

Early in my ministry I was on staff with Pastor Paul Bullman.  At our church we had a custom regarding cars.   When a parishioner bought a new (or new to them) car, they would bring it by for a test drive by the pastor and then he would have a prayer of dedication for the family, that they might use the car for God’s glory.  We had a large Phillipino family in the church that were constantly trading cars so we often would have dedicatory prayer with them.

Today with the Burmese I use try to connect with new car owners for a moment of prayer.   We see both God’s blessing on their family and the setting aside of their vehicle for God’s purposes.

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning.
