Dear Praying Brothers and sisters,
At Grace Church, we believe that we should pray for one another! This is not just a good idea; the Lord instructs us to do so. Jesus prayed with such fervor that His disciples asked Him to teach them to pray. One huge blessing of having a church family is that we love one another and value each other’s prayers. I realize that you may not know all of these brothers and sisters, but please do not let that keep you from calling out their names before the Lord.
Here are a few names to pray for this evening: Pat Hoffman [At church yesterday… keep praying], Dave Pettitt [Upcoming surgery], JB & Elsie Nichols [JB continued cancer treatments], Natalie Marshall, Kenneth Smith, Bill Stancill [Home recovering], Ray Evans, Becky Thorpe [Surgery today], Sarah Gay, Dennis Day, Coral Whichard, Chuck and Jan Wadley [Chuck began cancer treatments today], David Stahl, Eddie Hilliard, Richard Lindsey, Mike Langley, Jessica Richardson, Cathy Zeigler, Nathaniel Hill [Surgery Thursday], Tony Simonetti, Selma [Darlene Wade’s mother], Tricia Garrett, the Maury Darden family [Maury’s Memorial Service was this past Saturday], and President Biden and our nation. You may know of others I’ve missed, please email me or text me their names. I may have missed a friend or two… please forgive me in advance ☺
You may want to print this list and take a copy with you! What a great way to love others; pray for them! What a great way to support each other; prayers make a difference! Take a few minutes to pray for these… my name has been here before and you prayed for me. Thank you! Let’s do this together!
1 Chronicles 16:8-11 (KJV) Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon His name, make known His deeds among the people.9 Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him, talk ye of all His wondrous works.10 Glory ye in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.11 Seek the LORD and His strength, seek His face continually.
Pray without ceasing,
Pastor Mike <><
