Prayer & Praise Items

March 13, 2019
First Mennonite Church

Praise God for willing kitchen helpers who provide our meals on Wednesday evenings.

Praise God for the comfort He gives when we lose loved ones who are Christians. We have the hope of meeting them again some day in heaven.

Pray for our missionaries of the week: Chuck & Carole Fennig.
Prayer: On Friday last week we took Jonathan to the ER after he fainted at the local doctor's office (where he was being treated for a persistent cough). He was admitted to the hospital for testing when doctors discovered that he has a rare congenital heart condition. After further testing, he was discharged on Saturday evening. An appointment for follow-up and treatment has been scheduled. Pray for wisdom and guidance during this whole process. Praise: We are grateful that we found out about Jonathan's heart condition and that it can be treated. The 22nd edition of the Ethnologue was released on February 21st! We are grateful for all the work that went into this new edition (20,000 changes).

Pray for 5 unspoken requests. Thank you for upholding these needs in prayer.

Pray for comfort and encouragement for families who have lost loved ones in the past weeks.

Pray for Pastor Jeff, Pastor Jim, and Pastor Bill, as they travel to Pennsylvania to attend the Spring Leadership Assembly and Celebration of Church Life with LMC on Friday and Saturday.

Pray for God’s presence, guidance, and intervention to our leaders amidst conflicts and tensions.


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