Prayer Items September 8, 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.  We pray for our Brothers and Sister to continue to use the Sermon Reflection Materials Booklet as we move to 2nd Corinthians. May it be a way to encourage them to reflect upon the Word of God during the week. 

4.  Pray for the Deacon Board and Church Common Council meetings to be held this afternoon Sept. 8th.

5.  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, can give good testimony to the Gospel, and know more unbelievers.

7. Please remember all students who are back at school, especially those who are starting at new schools and are out of town.
