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

  • Thank you, Lord, that even when we were your enemy, You loved us into Your kingdom by sending us Jesus.
  • Thank you, Lord, for the beauty of the winter snow.

  • Thank you, Lord, that when we experience a dark day, we are not alone and that it is temporary.

  • Those with ongoing health concerns. Thank God for being present with these loved ones.
  • Those in nursing or homebound care. Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring them peace and joy.
  • Those affected by the pandemic either as victims or caregivers. Pray that we continue to be diligent in following guidelines to be safe. Thank God for all those who work to keep us safe.
  • Those who are struggling with daily living needs, their faith, their job, their relationships.
  • Our missionaries who bring Good News to others despite hardships they experience along the way

  • Pray for those who have received gifts of encouragement from the church this year – may they be led to seek the greatest gift of Jesus!
  • That whatever is planned is based on the great commandments of loving God and loving our neighbor
  • That God will use us ordinary people for great works because we have great faith in Him which gives us access to His power.
  • That we may think outside the box, but always move with Jesus as the Head.
  • For our ministry teams to persevere as they care for and lead their congregations


To Think About: We have entered into the church season of Advent when we prepare for the coming of Jesus anew in our hearts. On this fourth Sunday of Advent we reflect on Love – the steadfast love of God is faithful and brings light into our darkness, breathes life where there should be death.  Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths. You care for people and animals alike, O Lord.How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings. Psalm 36:5-7
