and Cheryl were not present again this Sunday; we hope his health was not a factor in
their absence. Jean is still recovering from injuries received in a fall.
Thad's first week of recovery is reported to have been a good one, recovering
well enough so far that he and Totty may be able to return home this coming
week; one test must be completely successfully first. Our prayers are for a successful
test, a safe return home, and then a full
recovery. Pray for comfort for
both him and Totty. Please continue to pray for Patrick
and his family. They grieve at the loss of his
farther, Richard. Gary is up and about, though he is still experiencing pain from his recent back surgery;
we pray for his recovery and for strength for him to keep up his work schedule. Several in our congregation are suffering from health problems, and
we pray for recovery for all our folks.
We are thankful for the life of Sally, our friend in Christ, whose funeral
celebrated her life last week. Sally was a long-time, faithful woman of God who
will be missed by the Chapel. We thank Carolyn for her special recognition of
The love of Jesus is so needed throughout our country right now, as many people
are angry and threatening. With politicians in disarray the whole country cries
out for strong and effective leadership.
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.
