Prayer connects us with God. Sharing each other's concerns strengthens our faith and reminds that we are not alone. How may we pray for you?
Praying for each other is important to us.

Father, may we always remember that we are your people and that we are in your care.
We lift up to you our praises and thanksgiving and also our concerns. Intervene on our behalf
and grant us peace in the midst of trials. Grant us strength for the day and take tomorrow’s worry from us,
reminding us that before any trial ever came to be, there you were preparing for them, preparing us for them.
In Jesus name. Amen
Please continue prayers for Denise Myers as she recovers from covid. The rest of the family has again tested negative.

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.
For the Lord is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.

We wait in hope for the Lord;

even as we put our hope in you. ~Psalm 33:20-22

Please lift our new Organist, Barb Mulik in prayer this week, as she will have surgery Wednesday to remove some cancerous skin on her back.
Also, an update on our family health concerns. Aidan remains asymptomatic and was only tested because of a possible exposure at school. He was at his father’s home Friday night thru yesterday late afternoon. Colin, Denise and I have all tested negative for COVID, so we have no concerns about any exposure at church.
“Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge” (Psalm 62:5-8, NLT).
