Prayer Requests

We join together in prayer support for our friends across the country, no longer strangers to us, but our own brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ. We lift up their cares and concerns as if they are our own. We know God hears and answers our prayers, but sometimes we don't recognize the answers when they come. Let us always remember that prayer is a two-way conversation, and spend much time in quiet prayer, listening for God's answers, waiting for the calm moment in which we can clearly discern the still, small voice, or see the brilliant light that brings with it true sight.

We pray for Shannon H. in VSPW, Chowchilla, CA. Pray for God to stengthen and nurture her in faith.
