  • Pray that our burdens produce wine, not whines, for God’s spirit is meant to help us produce fruit for His Kingdom.
  • Help us to let go of bitterness and anger for God’s daily measure of grace gives us the strength to do so.
  • In a world where evil deeds occur too often, help us to share the hope we have to overcome darkness. We may not understand, but we can continue to be faithful in sharing God’s love.
  • Help us to be still and claim the presence, power, protection and provision of our heavenly Father. Psalm 46
  • Pray for the children who received our shoebox gifts last Christmas, that they will have the opportunity to know Jesus even after the gifts are put away.

  • Help us to see one another as Jesus sees each of us – lovable and forgiven.
  • Help us to follow the advice of Philippians 4:8 about the importance of what we fill our minds with: “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
  • Pray for those going through struggles of poor health, finances, relationships, and emotional stress.
