Pray for CCC:

  • Pray that we may faithfully worship our God because he has faithfully carried out His plan for us to be with Him eternally. Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago. Isaiah 25:1 NIV
  • Pray for perseverance and patience when it is hard to plan without knowing timing and details.
  • Pray for our children, that although book learning may be compromised, they may be learning valuable life lessons about God’s priorities.

To Think About: In Proverbs, God’s guide to living, we are reminded that the company we keep may affect our habits.  Don’t make friends with people who have hot, violent tempers. You might learn their habits and not be able to change. Proverbs 22:24-25 GNT
