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

  • Thank you, Lord, that You hear whatever I pray about in Your name. Help me to listen for your response.  I John 5:14
  • Thank you, Lord, for Your Word which is like fresh air for the soul.
  • Thank you, Lord, for teaching me that putting others first is better than striving for my own way.
  • Thank you, Lord, for the comfort and joy of family dinners.
  • Thank you, Lord, for options and Your help in choosing what You know is best.


Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ:

  • For those who need help with daily living activities.
  • For continued healing and patience for those receiving medical treatment
  • For those going through trials would be led to a deeper trust in God rather than questioning His way
  • For those who lost homes and treasures to the storms this past week
  • For safety against the Covid infection, especially health care workers who care for those being hospitalized
  • To find time to be still and know God is in control over every item on our to-do list. (Psalm 46:10)
  • That there be no more complaining, but a readiness to do God’s will. Jesus never made demands of God, but was obedient.
  • For those looking for jobs.
  • For new babies in our church family.
  • For those who decided against vaccination for “religious reasons”; some may face losing their jobs for their faith conviction.


Pray for CCC:

  • To choose God’s will, just as Jesus did, whether it means suffering or not.
  • To fix our eyes on the unseen which is eternal and not what we see in front of us which is temporary. 2 Corinthians 4:18
  • To believe in God’s supernatural power and authority to sanctify our efforts of making disciples. Matthew 28:18-19
  • For the new Official Board members and officers being prepared for service next year
  • Thank God for the joy of worshiping in person and the option of worshiping online as needed
  • That our young children will be nourished by the Word in their Sunday School classes
  • For our students who are away at college
  • For perseverance in our work for the Lord…. stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. – 1 Corinthians 15:58


To Think About: What’s needed most if we are to be disciples of Christ? Life-Style Worship.  We must present our offerings to God, not only because He deserves it, but he asks for it.  Then Moses carefully wrote down all the Lord’s instructions. Early the next morning Moses got up and built an altar at the foot of the mountain. He also set up twelve pillars, one for each of the twelve tribes of Israel. Then he sent some of the young Israelite men to present burnt offerings and to sacrifice bulls as peace offerings to the Lord. (Exodus 24:4-5)   Part of our worship is to present sacrifices of praise and the work of our hands, not what is left, but the best that we have.

  • 願我們不再有抱怨,而是準備好遵行神的心意。耶穌從不向神提出要求,而是順從。
  • 為正在尋找工作的人禱告。
  • 為我們教會大家庭中的新生兒禱告。

  • 讓我們不論是否有磨難,都像耶穌一樣選擇神的旨意。

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。我們必須向神獻上我們的祭物,不僅是因為他配得,而且這是他的命令。 摩西將耶和華的命令都寫上。清早起來,在山下築一座壇,按以色列十二支派立十二根柱子,又打發以色列人中的少年人去獻燔祭,又向耶和華獻牛為平安祭。(出埃及記 24:4-5)  我們的敬拜包括獻上讚美為祭物和我們手中擁有的、最好的部分,而不是剩下的東西。
