We missed seeing
and Cheryl again this Sunday; we pray they are well and able to maintain their
schedules. Jean is still recovering from injuries received in a fall.
Thad and Totty joined us this morning. Pray for Thad's treatment and recovery and for weight-gain in the
coming weeks before surgery in the Fall. Our prayers are for successful treatment for him and 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 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. Many prayers went around the world for
the trapped Thai children inside a dark cave in Thailand; thanks be to God that
the entire team and coach were successfully rescued last week.
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.
