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

  • Thank you, Lord, for Jesus, for his willingness to suffer the penalty for my sin.
  • Thank you, Lord, for safety when I venture out of my home.
  • Thank you, Lord, for a holiday from work, may I use it for your glory!
  • Thank you, Lord, that as I watch a seed grow into a blossom or something to eat, I am witnessing the miracle of your creative power.
  • Thank you, Lord, for ordinary people performing angelic tasks to encourage me.


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • For God’s calming presence for those anticipating surgery or medical treatment
  • For strength and trust for those who have lost loved ones, especially in the building collapse in Florida
  • For relaxation and safety for those on vacation
  • That hearts will be softened and receptive to the Word of God
  • To teach others how to experience God’s presence
  • For wisdom to be God’s salt and light in our workplace
  • For those suffering in weather extremes

  • For family members to be patient with one another


Pray for CCC:

  • It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening, accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument, a harp, and the melody of a lyre. You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done. Psalm 92:2
  • To rest assured that we can meet any challenge the world throws at us because the Lord is with us.
  • That thanksgiving be our attitude in worship and way of life for we are never without God’s favor and love
  • In the words of John Wesley, God grant that I may never grow to be useless.
  • To believe that when we call on God, He can and will move mountains
  • That if we are not planting in good soil, He redirects our energies
  • To be wise and welcoming in reopening planning


To Think About: We often have questions that can rock our faith such as ‘what is the meaning of life’?  The world can pull at us from many directions with promises of making life better, but Jesus reminds us of the standards that will be used to invite us into His kingdom.   “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’  “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me! Matthew 25:31-46. What we do for the ‘least of these’ defines our life.

思考:我們常常遇到足以動搖我們信念的問題,例如:“生命的意義是什麽?”。世界用生活會更好的承諾,從不同的方向牽扯我們,但耶穌提醒我們可以進入他的國度的標準。   “義人就回答說主啊,我們什麼時候見你餓了給你吃,渴了給你喝?什麼時候見你做客旅留你住,或是赤身露體給你穿?又什麼時候見你病了或是在監裡,來看你呢王要回答說‘我實在告訴你們:這些事你們既做在我這弟兄中一個最小的身上,就是做在我身上了。’”   我們為“最小的”所做的事情定義了我們的生命的意義。(馬太福音25:31-46)
