There are so many tragedies across our country. Pray for victims and survivors of the
Las Vega shooting massacre. And the serious
hurricanes that have devastated Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and twice in Puerto
Rico. Terrible earthquakes ravaged Mexico. All of these affected locations will
be years in recovering. Pray for civilians, first
responders, and relief aid providers as they strive to recover from these disasters.
Many lives and huge numbers of homes and businesses have been reported lost in
Northern California. We pray for all these victims and the first responders who
are fighting the fires.
We were saddened to hear of Vera's passing. She was a long-time, loyal member of
the Chapel, and we remember her ready, cheerful smile on so many Sunday's.
Today, her daughter Nancy shared the service with us.
Dennis continues treatments and is experiencing side effects from chemotherapy.
Soon, a critical surgery procedure and radiation treatment begin.
We continue to pray for Darla, in hopes she will find comfort and peace after facing
difficult emotional issues. We offer prayer for Julia, too, as she returns to college life after an illness.
We wish all success for Olivia and Brooke as they set up new lives in Austin, Texas. We pray they will settle in smoothly to
their new lives and challenges.
Terrorists in Europe have attacked - and murdered - numerous civilians. In the
hotbeds of the Middle East, most of the victims continue to be Muslims. There is
no justification for these actions. The world needs to unite in efforts to
eliminate the cancerous scourge known as ISIS.
Christians throughout the world, especially in the Middle East, are being
mercilessly slaughtered for their faith. We pray that world leaders find
solutions and take actions to stop the murderous extremists who conduct these attacks.
The Islamic-inspired attacks in Europe are deplorable and can only be alleviated
through the Love of God. Pray for resolution.
Please help us to be mindful of the vicious attack on America on September 11,
2001, and to be wary of our
adversaries from that fateful day. We pray for the souls of the innocents
who were lost on September 11, 2001. We pray for wisdom and guidance for
our national leaders and those of our allies as we combat the evil of that day.
Please pray for the on-going efforts of Young Life and Cru staff members, especially
local ones, as they work to keep our high school students focused on making wise
decisions in their lives.
