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

  • Thank you, Lord, for giving me strength to manage the tasks of the day.
  • Thank you, Lord, for making me a new person. Help me to keep allowing you to work in me.
  • Thank you, Lord, for cool days in the middle of summer.
  • Thank you, Lord, I don’t have to go far to take a break and see you at work.
  • Thank you, Lord, that You are in charge of my story, from planning to working it out.


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • For those who need God to make himself known to them in a tangible way
  • To learn how to take inventory of our lives and seek what is needed
  • To discern our ministry assignment and commit to doing it well
  • For healing for those suffering severe illness
  • For those experiencing sadness due to loss of loved ones
  • For our missionaries who have the same trials of life we do but complicated by being in foreign and sometimes hostile environments
  • To maintain trust and hope in God that better days are ahead
  • For the people in authority to make decisions about coronavirus and safety, that we pray for their wisdom and respect their guidance
  • For those who are lonely and isolated


Pray for CCC:

  • There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. 1 Samuel 2:2
  • Turn us away from trying to determine our own course of life without God. Being wise in our own eyes is pride. To combat this tendency, the Lord instructs us to fear Him and turn away from evil. This “fear” is not a horrified dread of the Father, but an attitude of respect that motivates us to obey Him for both our good and His glory.
  • For wisdom as we plan to start in-person gatherings, not forsaking worshiping together, but doing so safely.
  • That we take every opportunity to communicate how we feel to God. He wants to hear from us.
  • To build one another up with love and respect – praying for others is a good way.
  • Keep us from worry – it’s a result from planning without God.
  • To take every lesson learned from the Bible and use it to do our job of sharing the good news of salvation


To Think About: What’s needed most if we are to be disciples of Christ? Growing in the Word.  We must erase the old tapes of worldly thinking and record over with new data, storing God’s Word in our memory bank. We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.  We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.  2 Corinthians 10:3-5. To become mature disciples, our thinking must be strong in God’s Word to overcome Satan’s attempts to take over our thoughts.





  • 感謝主給我力量來應付當天的事務。
  • 感謝主使我成為一個新的人。 幫我繼續讓你在我裡面工作。
  • 感謝主在仲夏裡涼爽的日子。
  • 感謝主我不用走很遠就可以休息一會,亦看到你在工作。
  • 感謝主你看顧我的每事,從計劃到完成。



  • 為那些需要上帝以實質方式顯現來讓他們認識祂的人禱告。
  • 使我們學習如何清點我們的生活而尋找需要的東西。
  • 使我們能够辨別事工任務並承諾做好。
  • 為身體軟弱的弟兄姊妹持續地得到肉體和心靈上的醫治禱告 。
  • 為於那些因失去親人而感到悲傷的人禱告。
  • 我們的傳教士禱告,他們面臨著與我們相同的生活考驗,但因他們身處異國甚至有時是敵對的環境而處境變得複雜。
  • 保持對上帝的信任和希望,美好的日子就在眼前。
  • 為當權者有智慧地做出有關冠狀病毒和安全決定禱告,並尊重他們的指導。
  • 為那些孤獨和孤立的人禱告。



  • 沒有人像耶和華那麼聖潔,因為除你以外沒有別的神,也沒有磐石像我們的 神。(撒母耳記上 2:2)
  • 使我們不要試圖在沒有上帝的情況下決定自己的生活方向。我們自以為聰明,就是驕傲。 為了對抗這種傾向,主指示我們要敬畏他,遠離邪惡。 這種“敬畏”不是對天父的恐懼,而是一種尊重的態度,它激勵我們為了我們的好處和他的榮耀而服從他。
  • 為我們計劃開始實體聚會的智慧禱告,不要放棄一起敬拜,而是安全地進行。
  • 我們抓住一切機會向上帝傳達我們的感受。 他要聆聽我們向他傾訴。
  • 憑著為他人祈禱用愛和尊重彼此建立。
  • 讓我們不用擔心—這是沒有依靠上帝而作計劃的結果。
  • 利用聖經中學到的每一個教訓來分享救恩的好消息。



因為我們雖然在血氣中行事,卻不憑著血氣爭戰。我們爭戰的兵器本不是屬血氣的,乃是在神面前有能力,可以攻破堅固的營壘,將各樣的計謀,各樣攔阻人認識神的那些自高之事,一概攻破了,又將人所有的心意奪回,使他都順服基督。(哥林多後書 10:3-5)要成為成熟的門徒,我們的思想必須在上帝的話語中堅強,以克服撒旦控制我們思想的企圖。
