PRAISE & PRAYER
November 7, 2018
First Mennonite Church

PRAISE....
The Mission Festival offering to date is $125,977. We praise the Lord for each gift and giver. Let us pray that the goal of $216,000 will be met and that we will be challenged to serve in God’s kingdom work with our lives.

For the messages of our Mission Festival speakers. May the Lord give us courage to respond.

For the opportunity our children have to learn of missions through the Children’s Mission Festival, and to understand that they have a part in God’s plan to tell the world of Jesus, too
        
PRAYER....    
Pray for all of our missionaries this week. Pray for them at home or in various parts of the world. Let us remember to be an encouragement to each missionary that God lays on our hearts.


Pray for 9 unspoken requests. Thank you for upholding these needs in prayer.

Pray for comfort for Lana Schwartz and other family members in the death of Jocelyn Blum on November 3.

Pray that as a church we will realize the necessity and urgency of prayer - for our lives, for our families, for our church, and for our nation.

Pray for the many people who will be helped by our prayers, financial offerings and encouragement that comes from the Mission Festival. Also pray that God will send His workers into the harvest fields of the world.


God calls us to encourage each other. Here is a list of November 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.
