Prayer & Praise Items

August 21, 2019
First Mennonite Church

Praise God for the many options for Wednesday night classes, along with chapel speakers, lined up for fall, winter, and spring quarters.

Praise God for our Ministries Council. Pray that they may have wisdom as they make decisions concerning the overall ministry of our church.

Pray for all our missionaries, those who are serving in various foreign countries and away from their extended families as well as those serving from U.S. locations. Pray that they may remain devoted to serving Christ, even through difficulties and trials.

Pray for each of our college students, both new and returning, as they begin a new school year. Ask God to bring new assurance of his loving direction into their lives, that they would continually choose to follow and serve Him.

Pray for the FEAR NOT! Children’s Ministry Seminar that will take place here on Saturday (8/24), that those who attend will gain understanding of children affected by trauma. Pray for children’s ministry volunteers, that they may have a heart for reaching the next generation with the truth of God’s Word.

Pray for 9 unspoken prayer requests. (Thanks for upholding these needs in prayer.)

Pray that new folks that join us would be encouraged by a feeling of warmth, friendship, and acceptance.

God calls us to encourage each other. Here is a list of August birthdays for missionaries and church staff. A basket will be placed in the foyer in which you may place cards for them, and these will be sent for you.
