Aug 21, 2021   •  



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

  • Thank you, Lord, that I am free to worship You openly.
  • Thank you, Lord, that I can see your power and majesty even in rolling storm clouds.
  • Thank you, Lord, for good friends who encourage me.
  • Thank you, Lord, that every morning brings new hope.
  • Thank you, Lord, that You allow for makeovers. 2 Corinthians 5:17


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • For those who are shut-in their homes or nursing facilities
  • For those whose homes and livelihoods are devastated by earthquake and fire
  • For those waiting for resolution to health issues
  • For those with employment concerns due to coronavirus
  • For those living in countries where there is civil unrest
  • For Pastor Joanna and her family mourning the loss of her father
  • That our children may know the safety and security of being under God’s wing
  • For wisdom to wait patiently for God to lead and us to follow
  • That the presence of God will become evident to those who are in despair


Pray for CCC:

  • That we may praise God like Hannah, “My heart rejoices in the Lord! The Lord has made me strong. Now I have an answer for my enemies; rejoice because you rescued me. No one is holy like the Lord! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. “ 1 Samuel 2:1-2
  • To continue the joy of worshiping the Lord in His sanctuary in safety at I Street church and in unity with our online brothers and sisters
  • To take special care of our church where we ask God to meet us
  • For her ministry teams to be courageous and persevering as they plan for fall and trust CCC to His care
  • To think about what matters most to God and put aside personal preferences that may not be so important
  • For God to raise up those who are willing to serve together in ministry
  • That those who ventured to church last Sunday will do so again and again because they met God in worship


To Think About: What’s needed most if we are to be disciples of Christ? Growing in the Word.  We must develop a hunger to study God’s Word, not chew on it once in a while and wonder why it doesn’t taste good.  The more you eat, the sweeter it becomes.  Make me walk along the path of your commands, for that is where my happiness is found. Give me an eagerness for your laws   rather than a love for money! Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word.  Psalm 119:35-37 To become mature disciples, we must ask God to help us feed ourselves daily, not wait for a one-a-week feeding on Sunday. The more time we spend in the Word, the more we will understand, and the more we will want to read.





  • 感謝主,我能自由、公開地敬拜你。
  • 感謝主,讓我在風雲驚雷中仍然看見你的威嚴和大能。
  • 感謝主賜給我好朋友鼓勵我。
  • 感謝主,每日的早晨都帶來新的盼望。
  • 感謝主通過哥林多後書第5章第7節告訴我們有補救的機會:若有人在基督裡,他就是新造的人,舊事已過,都變成新的了。




  • 為行動不便,不能離家外出的弟兄姊妹禱告。

  • 願絕望中的人相信神的同在是確實存在的事實




  • 讓我們像哈拿那樣讃美神,“我的心因耶和華快樂,我的角因耶和華高舉,我的口向仇敵張開,我因耶和華的救恩歡欣!只有耶和華為聖,除他以外沒有可比的,也沒有磐石像我們的神。“撒母耳記上2:1-2。
  • 為我們繼續安全地在教堂實體敬拜和同時維持網絡敬拜而禱告。

  • 求主興起願意在事工中同心服事的弟兄姊妹。
  • 為上主日勇敢來教堂敬拜的弟兄姊妹禱告,願他們一次再次地回到教會敬拜,因為在敬拜中他們遇到了神。




求你叫我遵行你的命令,因為這是我所喜樂的。求你使我的心趨向你的法度,不趨向非義之財。求你叫我轉眼不看虛假,又叫我在你的道中生活(詩篇119:35-37)  要成為成熟的門徒,我們的禱告必須不單只在主日一周一次等待喂養,而是求主幫助我們每天自己喂養自已。當我們用越多的時間在神的話語上,就會更多地理解,且越想去追求神的話語。
