Prayers & Praise Line

February 16, 2014

 

Congregational Prayers and Praise

 

  • “Thy Word have I hid in my heart”…praise God for the gift of his Holy Word.  We ask God’s help in making us faithful about studying and learning from it.
  • We are so thankful that there are places such as FNOW that can help those in need.  We pray for the director and also for the volunteers who spend so much of their time helping at the Pantry.
  • Please be in prayer for the Alpha Classes taking place. We thank God for the participants, the volunteers, all those who are a part of these classes.  We pray for God’s blessings on their efforts.
  • Please pray for John Dekker, brother of Wes Dekker.  John is blind in one eye and is losing cells behind the other eye.  There is nothing medically that can be done, but pray to God for an intervention.
  • We continue to lift up Lola De Young and her family in our prayers.  Pray for healing, strength, and encouragement for Lola and Matt & Lindsey. 
  • There are many friends and family of our church members that need your prayers this week.  Please continue to pray for Jennifer Kirkse, granddaughter of Mary Huizen, as she battles cancer.  Also, Barb, friend of Della Sawyer, undergoing chemotherapy, Tobiah Wiese, newborn grandson of Betty Holmes, Jon Stouten after being diagnosed with Crohns disease, Rose Borkowski, mother of Anna, who has discovered a tumor in her throat, Marie Mc Donald, friend of Esther Hoag, who has cancer and is facing three different surgeries. 
  • We pray for all those who are serving in the military.  Continue to keep Amie Pierce in your prayers as she is stationed at Fort Riley in Kansas. 
  • Pray for our Shut-in’s: Mr. Ralph Bolt, Mrs Tena DeVink,

Mrs. Wilma Kamphuis, Mrs Miriam Schrotenboer, Mrs Ruth

Ver Merris.
