PRAYER LIST: WED December 12th, 2018
This week we would like to keep any and all church family members who are dealing with unspoken requests. Of these, we know there are MANY. Those dealing with loss of loved ones who they will miss during this Christmas season and those under heavy burdens of stress due to health issues or financial hardships brought about by the pressures of the holiday season.
We pray for David Hites (Randy’s brother) as he suffered an accident here last week while volunteering his time to do construction work on our building. Please keep him in prayer as he heals and adjusts to new ways of doing day to day tasks. Surround him with healing and peace, Lord.
Mike Sass: Needed to reschedule MRI.
George Randall and his wife, Ilene as they recover and deal with health issues.
Aimee, (Pastor Wayne’s cousin) is in need for prayer as she faces probable unemployment. Please pray for a new job to sustain her and her 3 children and for her peace of mind during this time.
Pray for Tyson and Shawna Copeland as they continue to deal with the issues from his accident this past summer. Praise also for Tyson’s continuing recovery!
Seth McAdams sent in this prayer request:
I’m in my senior year in college, just finishing the second to last semester in the business program at a Christian university. I’ll need to start applying for career jobs for after I graduate, but I need direction. Please pray that God will be absolutely clear with me about my calling, vocation, and the God-given purpose for my life. Although I’m not yet married, I would like to move out of Portland, and settle down in a place that would be good to raise a family, where there are high-quality schools, and a strong, Bible-believing Christian community. Pray for wisdom and clarity in where to move to, and pray for wisdom and clarity in the job search. Pray that God will connect me with excellent networking, job-hunting friends in the city I will move to, who will help me find the right job. Thank you so much.
Judy’s sister, Joyce as she settles into her new apartment.
Laura Lewis requests prayer for her daughter and son-in-law and his mother. His mother, Anna—age 96, is in very poor health and may not live too much longer. She is in Puerto Rico.
Faith Heath’s brother, Jim, is home from the hospital and improving. Pray for strength for him and his wife.
We have several in the church and connected to the church who are in need of larger/better housing. Pray that God will open the right doors at the right time.
We pray for our church Pastors and all of our Sunday School Teachers, Church Staff, Trustees and Board Members that they feel a growing sense of connection and excitement for the growth our church will receive with your blessing, Lord.
Please bless our current and upcoming ministries…both here at church and throughout our communities. We ask that you lead us to those who may be in need (for whatever reason) and allow us the opportunity to fellowship with them and plant the seed you ask us to plant so these folks may turn towards you to receive your Grace.
We pray for the upcoming 2019 Missions Trip to Guatemala. May all of those who are called respond to that call and may all those reached through this mission trip be touched by your warmth and love.
Please pray for Melissa Buscok as she directs and manages Love, INC throughout the holiday season when needs tend to be greater for families. Please bless their accounts and resources and provide guidance and peace where it is needed. We ask that you also will send people to her and this organization to act as Treasurer and Fundraiser Leader as well as the Board Members they need to fulfill each seat. Please guide and direct the hearts of those who are considering this work to feel the call in their hearts and take steps forward to meet this need.
All prayer requests will be received by pastoral staff. If you would not like your prayer request added to our list, you can be sure your request will be received in confidence.
