Pray in thanksgiving for God’s presence in our lives:

  • Thank you, Lord, for my mother.
  • Thank you, Lord, for teaching me faith over fear. 2 Timothy 1:7
  • Thank you, Lord, for others demonstrating trust in You that serves to inspire me.
  • Thank you, Lord, for Your Word, which provides encouragement for every situation I might be in.
  • Thank you, Lord, the frontliners caring for, protecting, and serving our communities, our families, and us in this pandemic. Thank You for these servant leaders, called to this work, trained for such a time as this, daily risking their own health and safety for others.

Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • Those in fragile health due to medical issues
  • Those in nursing or homebound care
  • Those dealing with the coronavirus pandemic – patients, medical staff, researchers, caregivers, essential workers, leaders who must decide how to bring our nation back to “normal”, those who are afraid of contracting the virus, those who are still coming down with the virus
  • Those who are mothers or who have served in that role. We thank them for their example of servanthood.
  • Those who are missing their mothers or grandmothers.
  • Those feeling helpless
  • Those who do not know there is a way to escape the curse of sin.
  • Those who are anxious. Pray that we may show others how to cast all their anxiety on God because He cares for us. 1 Peter 5:7  Loving God, here are my concerns. Please take them, provide as You see best, and give me Your peace.

Pray for CCC:

  • Pray that we worship God with praise just as He delights in us with His singing. The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”. Zephaniah 3:17 NIV
  • That the unifying voice of God will come out in Board discussions
  • To be diligent and wise in the details of opening our church again
  • Thanks to the many small groups praying together online or by phone
  • To have strength for the journey of serving God in this fallen world. May we serve with courage, compassion, and commission.
  • To remember that with God there are no mountains we can’t climb with His strength, power and patience.

To Think About: In Proverbs, God’s guide to living, we are reminded that our parents deserve our attention and care.  Listen to your father; without him you would not exist. When your mother is old, show her your appreciation. Proverbs 23:22 GNT
