Prayers & Praise Line
August 10, 2014
Congregational Prayers and Praise
As some of you already know there is an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone (West Africa).Over 1,000 have been infected and to date nearly 700 have died from this disease for which there is no known cure.
Liberia has closed all but 3 of their border crossings in an effort to contain the disease which has now spread to Nigeria.
Recent reports from Sierra Leone indicate that the disease has now spread to 2 Districts where we have Churches.
Please be in prayer that this disease will be quickly contained as fear and superstition sometimes get in the way of a possible containment of the disease.
As other prayers are shared, you are invited to write them down and include them in your prayers for our congregation this week. Please keep the church informed of your prayer needs and praise reports.
