Congregational Prayers and Praise

 

  • We are thankful today for the beauty of the season and times to refresh and renew.
  • We thank God today for his faithfulness and unfailing grace that is ours each new day.
  • Please be in prayer as fall plans are being made.  Pray for willing volunteers and an eagerness to dig in!
  • We pray for those who have recently lost loved ones.  We pray today for Sandy Workman and her family following the loss of their sister and aunt, Carol.
  • 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.  UPDATE:  Paul and his family are back in the US.  He has had two surgeries, one on his shoulder and one on his foot.  He broke 8 bones, two can be fixed with surgery and the other will mend on their own…slowly!  He has a lot of constant pain with a broken collar bone, torn ribs, crushed foot and heal bone.  So very thankful that his life was spared!
  • We continue to lift up Earl & Clare Reifel and the people they serve in West Africa as they battle the effects of the Ebola crisis there.
  • 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.
