PRAY – 5/6/2020


“Mingle praise, confessions, and intercession, but when you intercede, try to tie as many requests as possible to scripture….petitionary prayer honors [God] because he is a God who likes to give his blessings in response to the intercession of his people.”

                                                    – D. A. Carson


“…[Jesus] works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will….” (Ephesians 1:11b)


Missions Prayer Requests:

Please pray for our upcoming mission trips in 2020:
Please pray for protection from the Corona virus for our missionaries in China.
Please pray for Akeem Smith pastor of Storyline Church in Oakland CA:

  1. Please be praying for our church family as some have lost jobs and others’ workload have increased.
  2. Pray for Storyline Church as they will be under shelter in place guidelines all the way through the fall. Pray for wisdom as they are figuring out the details of how they will meet as a church that is mainly online and occasionally in person, possibly all the way through the fall.
  3. As a new church, we do not have a building.   Pray for wisdom as the leadership of Storyline Church plans their next steps.
