Prayer Items August 25, 2019

For our Church Community

1.  Our 2019 Church Sub Theme is "Fish for People” and as we continue to make disciples from "Me" (Individual) to "We" (Church) and eventually to "Others", may we all experience how to be Fishers of People as we go and bear fruit.

2.  Please pray for pastors, who have been planning the future direction of our Church in 2020. We ask God to give the pastors a unified vision as we go and bear fruit as a Church.

3.  Please pray for brothers and sisters, who sit on the nomination Committee for the 2020 Church Councils. May God give them wisdom and discernment to elect the appropriate Church Councils members for 2020.

4.  Pray for our brothers and sisters to participate in the church's service and to seize the opportunity to preach the Gospel so that we can build good relationships in this community and neighborhood, so that we can give good testimony to the Gospel, and know more unbelievers.

5.  As the summer holidays draw to a close, parents are actively preparing for the start of their children's schoolyear. Please pray for parents and students at all levels, and guidance for students as they start a new year.

6.  Please remember the gospel outreach activities (English classes, Scouts), which will continue from September. Please also pray for two evangelical meetings, and we ask the Lord to keep the gathering smooth, and inspire us to participate and seize the opportunity to preach the gospel.

For God’s Kingdom

Wilson Lu's service in Panama, as the preparations of the “Practical Course on Theology for Believers” are now under way;  this course will equip the Church of Panama with more spiritual leaders for the Kingdom of God.
