PRAYER POINTS THIS WEEK
Our Missionary Partners
Jonathan & Claire Keener: Pray for Jonathan and Claire as they serve in Asia, that the Lord would make them fruitful in their ministries, both in their formal music teaching, and also in the relationships they are forming with parents of their students and with neighbors in their community.
Pray for our team of men and women who are heading to Toronto at the end of this upcoming week to serve alongside believers in our sister church there. Pray for the Lord to excite them, encourage them, and prepare them both spiritually and physically for a week of service ahead of them.
With Independence Day in the middle of this week, take time to: a) thank God for the incredible freedoms and privileges we enjoy as followers of Christ in America, and also to b) confess the sin and spiritual darkness that are pervasive in various ways, particularly those sins that have infiltrated the ranks of believers.
Pray for our church as we continue through our Nehemiah: Building on the Foundation sermon series, that as a body of believers, we might come to love others more and give of ourselves as we see how Jesus loves us.
