Prayer & Praise Items
PRAISE & PRAYER
July 10, 2019
First Mennonite Church
Praise God for the blessings of freedom which we enjoy in our nation. Thank Him that we have the privilege of proclaiming the gospel in our homes, our churches, and to the world.
Praise God for faithful laymen, here in our church and in many places of the world. Without them, the Gospel would not be shared.
Pray for our missionaries: Kurt & Katie Cline.
Things are going well for us right now. We have our summer school program, camp, and VBS underway with a lot of groups! We continue to pray for more interns and missionaries to come and participate in what God is doing here. We are still really low on school year interns, which can cause us to have to drop English programs and special education classes. We praise God for the people that have come and are in the process of coming. We recently added two missionary families to the ground team, and three more are in the process of raising support! That's exciting news for us!
Pray for 7 unspoken prayer requests. (Thanks for upholding these needs in prayer.)
Pray for our church family: that we would continue to bless and encourage one another in loving and caring ways.
Pray for protection for the many who are traveling during vacations this summer.
Pray for the strengthening of one-parent families: for the difficult financial burden, discouragement with the emotional load, and that they will direct the hearts of their children in the love of the Lord.
God calls us to encourage each other. Here is a list of July birthdays for missionaries and church staff. A basket will be placed in the foyer in which you may place cards for them, and these will be sent for you.
