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

  • Thank you, Lord, for the advice of more mature Christians.
  • Thank you, Lord, that I am a new creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17
  • Thank you, Lord, that You do not overlook the quiet faithfulness of those steadfast in prayer. Hebrews 6:10
  • Thank you, Lord, for opportunities to visit loved ones.
  • Thank you, Lord, that changing seasons remind me You are always at work.


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • For those who are shut-in their homes or nursing facilities
  • For continued healing and adjusting for those persevering through medical treatment
  • That others may experience God’s love through the lives of the faithful at CCC
  • That we might accept change gracefully
  • That we may come alongside those who mourn
  • For calm and peace for those frustrated by their circumstances
  • For wisdom and discernment for our leaders as new events and dilemmas unfold
  • For those isolated due to the pandemic
  • For those in strained relationships
  • For our missionaries to persevere and be protected and guided by God


Pray for CCC:

  • To worship with gratitude and enthusiasm. My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you—
    I whom you have delivered.
  • That we remember our job is always to extend the invitation to others to know God and receive His eternal promise
  • To encourage all to be faithful in worship whether online or in person
  • To trust God for safety and success in our plans because they are aligned with His
  • To keep both God’s home and His people in the condition our Father would appreciate
  • To guide every child entrusted to us to saving grace
  • For the nominating process for next year’s Official Board leadership
  • For its fellowship and study groups who are starting in-person meetings
  • To be God- and other-centered as the Great Commandment teaches. Matthew 22:37-39


To Think About: What’s needed most if we are to be disciples of Christ? Life-Style Worship.  We must answer God’s call to come to Him (Exodus 24) and worship with singing and shouting (Psalm 95:1-3), dancing (2 Samuel 6:14), bowing (Psalm 95:6), and sometimes even silence (Habakkuk 2:20).  Our worship must be a celebration to God because we can’t help ourselves as we recognize how great He is.

思考:我們要成為基督的門徒,最需要什麼?答案就是:在生活中敬拜神。我們必須回應神的呼召,來到他面前(出埃及記 24),用歌唱和歡呼(詩篇 95:1-3)、跳舞(2 撒母耳記 6:14)、鞠躬(詩篇 95:6),有時甚至沉默( 哈巴谷書 2:20)來敬拜他。我們的敬拜必須是對神的歡慶,因爲當我們認識到他是偉大的神時,我們會情不自禁地向他歡呼讚美。
