Perryman Post, April 2019

James 5:16 reminds us, “ . . . the prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” In reviewing our year at CAK, it has become increasingly clear that we have been tested and tried. Straight line wind damage, security issues, sickness, and flooding all are examples of the issues we have faced as a CAK family. I often have folks tell me that they pray daily for CAK and my response is DO NOT STOP - those prayers are felt every day on our campus.

Varsity baseball coach Tommy Pharr suggested in an email that the entire campus pause at a certain time to pray for CAK. I felt this was a fabulous idea, and as a result, I am asking for our campus and for all parents to participate. We are calling this “At 9 for 5”. On April 16that 9:00 am our entire campus will stop what we are doing and pray collectively for CAK. Parents, I also encourage you to set a timer stop for 5 minutes and pray for CAK, no matter where you are, home or work.

We all have examples of our experiences with answered prayer. I have so many of my own that I could fill several volumes. God is so good and only wants the best for His children. Discouragement is like cancer that spreads like wildfire. However, we are encouraged in Luke 18:1 that we “. . . ought always to pray and not lose heart.” Satan is a master at discouragement and loves nothing more than to spread that cancer among the believers. Folks DO NOT be discouraged! God is at work on our campus and in the hearts of our students.

Remember the CAK Way:

  1. Love God
  2. Love People
  3. Model Jesus
  4. Make decisions that are best for our students

Because of His Grace,
Dan Perryman
