Prayers: June 26, 2022

Jun 24, 2022   •  


Always be joyful. Never stop praying.  Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Thank you, God:

  • for your awesomeness and for giving us power and strength. Psalm 68:35
  • that when we seek you with our whole heart, we will find You. Jeremiah 29:13
  • for a hill full of daisies that a year ago were just tiny dots of seeds. Thank you that you are always working in ways we will never understand but can enjoy.
  • for the blessing of coworkers
  • for finding something to smile about in every situation


  • for those who are ill or frail
  • for those who are homebound or hospitalized or recovering from treatment
  • for those caught in the devastation of the earthquake in Afghanistan
  • for those traumatized by gun violence and fighting.  We pray for peace in the hearts of those who are grieving as well as those who do not know how to deal with their anger
  • that we may practice being God’s hands and feet as we serve in this broken world
  • for our nation’s leaders, that they be moved to do what is good in God’s eyes
  • for those who are job hunting
  • for safety for those traveling
  • for patience and perseverance for our missionaries as they bring souls to Christ one by one. Pray they will remain joyful amid suffering (Acts 5:41)
  • that we continue to practice safety in COVID conditions
  • for the church Summer Retreat – for preparations by the English Ministry Team and speaker; and for those who sign up to be taught and refreshed in the fellowship of church family
  • for a time of refreshing and inspiration for Pastor Joanna during her summer sabbatical
  • for Vacation Bible School – for the planners, the helpers, and the students who will attend
  • that God will provide peace, comfort, and reconciliation for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine. Be with those who are anxious, fearful and bereaved.  We continue to cry out for an end to this conflict trusting in God’s mercy and compassion.

To Think About:

During Isaac’s time there was a famine which caused much upheaval and uncertainty just like COVID19 is causing a famine of hope and life as we knew it.  But Isaac kept God’s promise in his heart, I will be with you and will bless you (Genesis 26:3), and was obedient when God told him where to move and what to do to survive the famine.   May we follow Isaac’s example and spend time in prayer that we may hear God’s direction, use the resources He provides and be active in our obedience.


要常常喜樂, 不住的禱告, 凡事謝恩。因為這是 神在基督耶穌裏向你們所定的旨意。

        在以撒那個時代,一場飢荒造成了巨大的動盪和不確定性,就像新冠病毒造成了衆所周知的無望和對生命的渴望。但以撒在心裡信守了神的應許,我必與你同在,賜福給你(創世記 26:3),當神告訴他遷移的地點和渡過饑荒的方法時,他很聽話。願我們模仿以撒,用時間禱告,聆聽上帝的指示,使用祂提供的資源,主動順服神的引導。
