NOT BY SIGHT (2Cor 5:7)
Call to Prayer
Fast your vision – Pray for the Blind
October 15 is the national “White Cane Safety Day.” In honor of that day, the staff of the Center for the Blind is calling people to “fast” their vision for a period of 1, 2, 3, or 4 hours in the month of October and then pray for the Blind and severely vision impaired and for those who minister to them.
To make it simple, just purchase a sleep mask from your favorite drugstore or make your own blindfold and wear it for at least an hour doing a normal life activity. Think of how different your life would be if you lost your vision. Then begin to pray for the needs of those who cannot read standard print because of a vision impairment.
Pastors, please invite your church to participate. Sleep masks are very inexpensive when purchased in bulk on the internet!
WHAT IS BLINDNESS?
Please watch this brief video and pass it on to your friends.
Making the Cross Accessible
According to current estimates, 1 out of every 47 people in the United States has low enough vision (10% or less of perfect vision) to qualify as “legally blind.” That is just over 2% of the U.S. population. The mission of the CftB is to make the cross accessible to almost 6.5 million people. The goal of the CftB is that each one will have the opportunity to experience:
Freedom in Salvation - Joy in Belonging
Fulfillment in Living - Honor in Serving
Please look over this web presentation to see if the services of the CftB can benefit you or someone you know. Please also check out the opportunities to become part of the CftB team of volunteers.

A Word From His Word
Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. [2 Corinthians 12:9] [NLT]
