Aug 14, 2021   •  



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

  • Thank you, Lord, for the majesty of sunrises and sunsets.
  • Thank you, Lord, for creating families.
  • Thank you, Lord, that I can believe your responses to my prayers are always trustworthy.
  • Thank you, Lord, that whatever this day brings, You will be with me through it.
  • Thank you, Lord, for the calm that comes after the storm.


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • To see that our God cannot be neatly described in our finite thinking because He is too vast and incomprehensible. Help us to accept the mysteries of God’s greatness.
  • For those anticipating or recovering from medical treatment
  • For those suffering from extremes in weather and fire storms
  • To ask and believe that God will bring us victory against the virus. Protect those who are treating patients with this illness
  • To use discerning hearts before speaking out with our first thoughts
  • To be generous with what God has given us to do good for others and in the world
  • For our missionaries to find the resources, wisdom, and faith to meet the challenges of each day
  • To accept that the future may be very different from what we used to know.
  • For the safety of our college students preparing to return to campuses for study. May the opportunity to gain knowledge not be marred by sickness.
  • For the safety of our young children preparing to return to in person learning in elementary school and high school settings. May the opportunity to gain knowledge not be marred by sickness.


Pray for CCC:

  • Come and listen, all you who fear God,and I will tell you what he did for me. For I cried out to him for help, praising him as I spoke. If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer. Psalm 66:16-19
  • For a safe, God-honoring reopening worship in God’s physical sanctuary at CCC
  • To use every gift of the Holy Spirit available to us – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control – to carry out God’s ministry for our church
  • For children’s Sunday School planning – teaching materials, personnel, physical furnishings, and safe return to in-person activities
  • To be good stewards of the resources available to us
  • To provide opportunities for serving, discipleship, and fellowship


To Think About: What’s needed most if we are to be disciples of Christ? Growing in the Word.  We study God’s Word so that we can apply it to our lives. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations… and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  Matthew 28:19-20 To become mature disciples, our prayer must be to ask God, not only what He wants us to know, but also what He wants us to do and obey.

  • 讓我們的傳教士找到資源、智慧和信念來迎接每一天的挑戰。

  • 為了我們準備返校園學習的大學生禱告。 願他們平安,不會被疾病破壞了學習的機會。
  • 為了我們準備返校園學習的小學和中學生禱告。 願他們平安,不會被疾病破壞了學習的機會。



  • 凡敬畏神的人,你們都來聽!我要述說他為我所行的事。我曾用口求告他;我的舌頭也稱他為高。我若心裡注重罪孽,主必不聽。但神實在聽見了;他側耳聽了我禱告的聲音。(詩篇66:16-19)
