Wednesday Wonderings – April 21st, 2021

 

 

Excerpts from a prayer written by Debbie McDaniel

 

Dear God,

 

Thank you that you make all things new.

Thank you for the victory and power in your name.

Thank you that you had a plan, that you made a way through the

Resurrection of Jesus.

We confess our need for you….fresh….new….again.

We ask that you renew our hearts, minds, and lives, for the days ahead.

We pray for your refreshing over us.

Shine you light in us, through us, over us.

May we make a difference in this world, for your glory and purposes.

Set your way before us that we may reflect your peace and hope

to a world that so desperately needs your presence and healing.

 

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

 

From the desk of Scott:

 

For as the earth produces its sprouts,
And as a garden causes the things sown in it to spring up,
So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise
To spring up before all the nations.

                                                                ~Isaiah 61:11

 

-Please continue to pray for peace, reconciliation, and justice for our country and world.

 

-May 2nd will be our next Children’s Sunday School Zoom at 1:00 pm.

Barbara McLaughlin

Irene White

God Cares. Yesterday today and tomorrow

 

 

All over the world folks are doing what they can to support and give comfort in this time of uncertainty.

Everything has changed but God is our constant. 

God will comfort the grieving and give strength to those who are in need

There is hope found through prayer and our continued faith that God will be there for all of us.

 

 

Our church family is amazing when called upon to help. 

Some ideas.....
Fill the plastic container outside the parking lot door with food for the food pantry

Drop off cards in the office mail box to be mailed to area nursing homes or our shut-ins.

Put a sign with a word or picture of encouragement in a window or in your yard

Every day at 3PM let's all take a moment to connect spiritually with prayer.

A moment in time each day to pray for those who need God’s comfort and care.

 

Your deacons are available via email or phone. We are committed to help however we can.

The Lord hears when I call to him. There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!”

Lift up the light of thy countenance upon us, O Lord

In peace I will both lie down and sleep.

For thou alone. O  Lord, makest me dwell in safety.
