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.
Pam's nephew, Aaron, a combat Navy SEAL, was seriously injured in a training
accident this past week. Pray for Aaron's strength and recovery, as well as the
family's perseverance. How great (!) that Lang has rebounded, it seems, from his
surgery a few weeks ago. We pray for restored health as Howard faces surgery
this week; Kelly will need strength in order to help him. Our long-time friend
Terry face knee replacement this week. Please pray for his recovery, too.
Today, Jean was able to join us at the Christmas luncheon; it was so good to see
getting out and about. Pray for Mary to have health and strength, as she has
experienced weakness over the past several weeks.
Dennis continues treatments and is experiencing side effects from chemotherapy.
A critical surgery procedure has been performed, and a series of radiation treatments
will begin soon.
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.
Olivia and Brooke both have new, full-time jobs in Austin, Texas. We pray they will
experience continued successes in
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.
