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

  • Thank you, Lord, for crisp, fall days.
  • Thank you Lord that my obstacles are not your obstacles.
  • Thank you, Lord, for reminding me to look up to You for help.
  • Thank you, Lord, I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus, the spotless Lamb of God (1 Peter 1:18-19)
  • Thank you, Lord, You prepare a table of abundant goodness, joy, peace, and power even when i am in the midst of the enemy of pandemic, fire, and storms. Ps 23:5

Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • Those with ongoing health concerns. Pray for healing and peace.
  • Those in nursing or homebound care. Pray for God’s presence to overcome their isolation.
  • Those who mourn.
  • For our missionaries
  • Those with illness for whom the world’s medicine cannot help
  • Those who need the hope of salvation
  • Thank God for those who take care of our daily needs and safety often at risk to themselves
  • For those who have lost everything due to fire

Pray for CCC:

  • Pray that we may strengthen ourselves with the living water of His Word and Spirit in worship. “Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink— even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk— it’s all free! Isaiah 55:1 NLT
  • That God’s Word will be proclaimed and bear fruit even when it’s not in the way we imagined
  • Thank God for co-workers serving behind the scenes to provide virtual worship and learning opportunities.
  • That we persevere in caring for one another even while social distancing
  • For our pastors to discern how to shepherd their flocks and be voices of sacrificial love in their communities
  • That God’s will be done in the leadership election process of our church
  • That we may figure out ways to minister even with the pandemic restrictions

To Think About: In Proverbs, God’s guide to living, we are reminded that fearing the Lord puts God with us, much better than living by our own devices.  Blessed is the man who reveres God, but the man who doesn’t care is headed for serious trouble.  Proverbs 28:14 NLT
