May 29, 2021   •  



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

  • Thank you, Lord, for bringing joy to my heart when I am sad.
  • Thank you, Lord, that prayer is my relief valve for stress.
  • Thank you, Lord, for responding to my faith in you just as you did for believers in the past. Hebrews 11
  • Thank you, Lord, that You light up my darkness. Psalm 18:28
  • Thank you, Lord, for things You have created. Even the cicadas show us your unmatchable majesty and power.


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • For those who are dealing with illness and health issues. Pray for healing.
  • For those who mourn, pray that God will comfort them through family, friends and His peace.
  • For those who do not know Jesus – ask God to provide the right words for you to boldly explain God’s mysterious plan. Ephesians 6:19
  • For those still impacted by COVID-19 and the anxiety it causes.
  • That others may see prosperity and blessing in our lives as we strive to be truthful, peaceful and good and as a result, they desire to want the same. Psalm 34:12-14
  • For those who feel hopeless
  • For those who are weary and need God’s rest
  • For our pastors to be energized by God’s love, power, and wisdom


Pray for CCC:

  • To “Sing to the Lord, for he has done wonderful things. Make known his praise around the world.” It is our privilege to bring glory to God. Isaiah 12:5
  • That we are compelled to ministry by our love for God – that we desire to help when there is a need, to give joyfully, and to serve with gratitude.
  • For wisdom in establishing reopening church plans
  • For the new program for our teens – that it will be an opportunity to experience God and fellowship with others
  • To be good hosts as Grace DC returns to worship inside the church building
  • To work together in harmony and strength as we define a “new normal” in our ministry to make disciples. Pray that we not become complacent or timid as we step out of our homes again.
  • To always make time to hear what God and each other are saying to us


To Think About: We often have questions that can rock our faith such as ‘what’s my purpose in life’. Jesus summarizes his answer in the Great Commission.  Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” We are to take the authority of Jesus and with his presence in us, invite and teach others to be his disciples.  Matthew 28:18-20









  • 謝謝主在我憂傷時給我心裏帶來喜樂。

  • 感謝神回應我們對祂的信心,正如他給歷世歷代相信他的人美好的證據一樣。(希伯來書11章)
  • 感謝神照亮我的黑暗。(詩篇18:28)
  • 為所有的受造物感謝神,甚至在蟬的身上就向我們展示了神無比的能力和威嚴。




  • 為體弱多病的弟兄姊妹得醫治禱告。
  • 為哀痛的人禱告,求神的恩典並通過家人、朋友來安慰他們。
  • 為不知道耶穌的人禱告——求神賞賜我們有合適的言語和肯定的方式,向他們清楚地解釋神奇妙的計劃。(以弗所書6:19)
  • 為仍然處於新冠病毒影響之下和由此而引發的焦慮之中的人禱告。
  • 為慕道友禱告,願他們看到我們被主改變而得的豐盛生命和蒙受的祝福,就是信實,和平和美善,就來投靠神,成爲有福的人。(詩篇34:12-14)
  • 為毫無盼望的人禱告。
  • 為筋疲力盡的人禱告;為需要在神裡面安歇的人禱告。
  • 為我們的牧者從神的愛、能力和智慧中充滿力量。




  • “我們要向耶和華唱歌,因他所行的甚是美好。但願這事普傳天下!(以賽亞書12:5)”我們信主之人應當將榮耀歸於神。
  • 讓我們被神的愛激勵,在事工中服事——就是我們樂意在需要時提供幫助、樂於奉獻,在服事中存感恩的心。
  • 讓我們有智慧設立重新開放教會的計劃
  • 為教會青少年團契禱告——希望青少年利用這個機會經歷神,共享團契時光,培養屬靈夥伴。
  • 讓我們有良好的管理能力,為 Grace DC 教會恢復在教堂內進行主日崇拜提供便利。

  • 讓我們常常抽出時間聆聽神的聲音,也抽空傾聽他人和我們交談。


思考:我們常常遇到足以動搖我們信念的問題,例如:“我人生的目標是什麽?”。在馬太福音28章18-20節中,耶穌用“大使命”概要給出了他的答案:“天上地下所有的權柄都賜給我了。 所以你們要去,使萬民做我的門徒,奉父、子、聖靈的名給他們施洗, 凡我所吩咐你們的,都教訓他們遵守。我就常與你們同在,直到世界的末了。”  我們要拿起主耶穌授予的權柄和他的同在,主動傳講福音,帶領他人成為耶穌基督的門徒。
