  • My friend Sue, whose life and love she shared with friends and family (Anslee)
  • An upcoming year full of personal opportunities (Anslee)
  • Our neighbor Darryl who was released from the hospital after a month and is in much better health (Karen)
  • Having a place and home to stay and live (Skylar)
  • God hearing our cries when we call on Him
  • Finally finding a job
  • Getting a chance to spend time with friends and this community for the past week (Marsha)

… let us bless the Lord.  Thanks be to God.

Prayers of Petition. For …

  • Those of us longing for something new and are experiencing something tragic or painful, that we’ll sense the promise of Emmanuel – God with us (Gid)
  • My friend Sue who had lung cancer and passed a couple days ago (Anslee)
  • A new relationship that’s getting difficult (Skylar)
  • Situations that may cause me to lose my home (Becky)
  • Baby Rocket who has been vomiting and having diarrhea the last few days and for peace for Teddy and Anna Michelle (Wey)
  • Our county and all our leaders that they would have wisdom
