For Church Communities

May we be mindful of God’s blessings and be alert and sensitive to where He’ll lead us.

For God’s Kingdom

3.  May God continue to motivate us to support and live on missions both near and far.   

4.  As we continue to navigate through COVID – 19, let’s pray for love and peace at this time as we show the love of Christ to those who are around us by praying:

a.  For those who have been impacted by COVID-19: frontline essential workers, medical staff, those who still need to go to work daily or work from home, small businesses suffering from lost income, families struggling with finances, senior living in long-term care homes, students and teachers who are adjusting to remote learning.  May God protect and comfort them and their families during this challenging time.

b.  Let us not be relaxed but continue to be mindful to keep safe and healthy and continue to pray for those who are infected.

5.  Please pray for a confused and challenging world for the spark of hope that is beginning to rise among people. Pray that we can share the hope of Jesus with others and that the Church can reach out to the world.  Pray also for world leaders who are heavily burdened with fighting COVID while taking care of the needs of their people as well as the dire situation in India.

Congregational Needs

1.  Pray for our online Zoom EM prayer meetings on Wednesday at 7:30 pm and that people will be encouraged to participate in them during this time of uncertainty in the world.
