BIBLE READING FOR THIS WEEK
Please spend time reading through Psalms 79-91 in preparation for the next sermon on Sunday, July 8th.
Each week we pray for members of our church family. Suggested prayers are for their spiritual growth, opportunities to see Christ in their everyday lives, and anything else that God puts on your mind for them.
This week please pray for:
Chris P., Aaron & Megan S. and their children
Lanny & Christine S., Ruth S., Vicki T
Members of our congregation who are battling illness, mental health, or loss of a loved one.
Pastor John and Jean VanHemert and the Seafarers ministry as they reach out to the sailors in the local ports.
A pastor in Uttar Pradesh state, India was filing affidavits stating that 16 people had become Christians of their own will this week when Hindu extremists came and accused him of forcible conversion – resulting in his incarceration. Pray for his release and for encouragement of him and his fellow Christians.
Pray for a pastor and his wife who were arrested in China for distributing Christian brochures and carrying anti-abortion banners.
80% of children entering the foster care system are there due to parental drug involvement. Please pray the supply lines of opioids to decrease. Pray for healing over the parents.
