Prayers & Praise Line

August 10, 2014

 

Congregational Prayers and Praise

  • We praise God today for our newest member, Wayne Ver Strate.  We welcome you into the fellowship and works of GRC!
  • Please pray for those who have recently lost loved ones.  In particular we pray for the Benes family following the homegoing of Rev. Lewis Benes, our former pastor here at Grace.
  • We have a prayer request from Earl & Clare Reifel, friends of Ken & Cindy Wylie, who spoke at our church awhile back:

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.

  • Please continue to be in prayer for Paul Hoekstra, Vice President of Operations at Talking Bibles, who was involved in a serious automobile accident in Hungary on Friday, July 18. 
  • There are many friends and family of our church members that need your prayers this week.  Please continue to pray for Lola De Young and her parents Matt & Lindsey.  Also, Barb, friend of Della Sawyer, undergoing chemotherapy; Marie Mc Donald, friend of Esther Hoag, who has cancer; and Caitlin, friend of Abbey Licari, diagnosed with Leukemia.
  • We pray for all those who are serving in the military.  In particular we pray for Amie Pierce serving in Kuwait.
  • Pray for our Shut-in’s: Mr. Ralph Bolt, Mrs Tena DeVink, Mrs. Wilma Kamphuis, Mrs Ruth Ver Merris.

 

 

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.
