PRAYER POINTS THIS WEEK

Our Missionary Partners
Omar & Norma Soto: Pray for Omar and Norma, that as Pastor Nate visits them in the upcoming days, they’d be encouraged to persevere in ministry with hope and fruitfulness. Pray for the church they are part of, as they’ve been facing threats and challenges, that the Lord would bind them together and strengthen their faith and their resolve.

Our Community
Pray for the people who live closest to you (in your neighborhood, apartment complex, etc.). Pray for opportunities to minister to them and show love to them. Pray for their salvation and for the Spirit to be at work in using you to be a picture of God’s pursuit and love in their lives.
