Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you… (Psalm 55:22)

  • Thank you for the Advent season when we are reminded of the love we have in Jesus. “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.  God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.John 3:16-17 NLT
  • Pray that the twinkling lights and joyous sounds of the Christmas season always remind us of the star and the angels singing on the day baby Jesus came to earth to be with us.
  • We pray for Your strength as we step out into a cold and hurting world which needs you, Lord. Show us how we may bring glory to You by helping others.
  • We cry to You, Father, as we struggle under the burdens of life. Remind us that our help comes from above, from the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 42
  • Help us, Lord, not to dwell on understanding all things, but trusting You in all things.
  • Pray for our missionaries – for steadfastness to their ministry, security in their daily activities and support from those of us who send them.
  • Pray for those who have lost loved ones recently.
  • Pray for a new year where we won’t feel afraid leaving our homes to worship in person.
  • Pray for the children and young people in our church, that we not neglect teaching and modeling a saved life.
  • We pray for visitors to our midst, whether they are stopping a moment in their travels, looking for a new church home, or come at the behest of a friend. God always has a word of encouragement no matter how one comes to be with us.
  • We pray for our church family – for those dealing with health and mobility issues; for those who are homebound; for those with job and financial worries; for those in broken relationships. I have heard all about you, Lord. Remember Habakkuk’s prayer: I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by. And in your anger, remember your mercy. Habakkuk 3:2

For more prayer items for our world, our country, our community, our church, our family, and ourselves, please see our monthly prayer calendar on the website.


 “你要把你的重擔卸給耶和華,祂必撫養你…。”詩篇五十五章 二十二節

  • 感謝將臨節提醒我們在耶穌裡的愛。神愛世人,甚至將他的獨生子賜給他們,叫一切信他的不致滅亡,反得永生。因為神差他的兒子降世,不是要定世人的罪,乃是要叫世人因他得救。約翰福音3:16-17
  • 祈求聖誕季節閃爍的燈光和歡樂的聲音,總是讓我們想起在小耶穌來到世上與我們同在的那一夜的那顆星和天使的歌頌。
  • 主啊,當我們踏入這個需要你的寒冷和傷痛的世界時,我們祈求你賜予力量。教我們如何通過幫助他人來榮耀你。
  • 天父啊,當我們在生活的重擔下掙扎時,我們向你哀求。提醒我們幫助是從至上而來,來自天地的創造者。詩篇42
  • 主啊,幫助我們不要老想著了解所有的事情,而是在所有的事情上都信靠你。
  • 為我們的傳教士禱告——為他們事工的堅定不移、日常活動的安全以及差遣他們的人的支持禱告。
  • 為最近失去親友的人禱告。
  • 祈求新的一年我們不再害怕離開居所親自到教堂敬拜。
  • 為我們教會的兒童和年輕人禱告,為我們不要忽視教導得救的生命和作為榜樣禱告。
  • 為來到我們中間的訪客禱告,無論他們是在旅途中停留片刻、或尋找新的教會家庭、或是應朋友的囑咐前來;不管他們為何與我們同在,神總是有鼓勵的話。
  • 為我們的教會大家庭祈禱——為那些健康和行動有問題的人、困在家裡的人、受工作和財務問題困擾的人、有關係破裂的人祈禱。記住哈巴谷的禱告:耶和華啊,我聽見你的名聲就懼怕。耶和華啊,求你在這些年間復興你的作為,在這些年間顯明出來,在發怒的時候以憐憫為念。哈巴谷書3:2
