“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks
in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in
Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
The Tuesday Prayer Group  
 
 Let’s get together to pray for the world-wide church, our home church, the United States, nations around the world and our local communities.
   Every Tuesday, starting July 6, 2021, we will meet at noon in the parlor at the church. Because we will be meeting at the noon hour, everyone can bring a sack lunch. We can eat together after we finish praying.
   We as a congregation can pray as one. As I look at the conditions of the world, this nation, and THE CHURCH of Jesus, I am convinced that we need to pray. -Elder Wilma Hemphill
 
 
Prayer request? 

The Lord is omnipresent—meaning He is in every aspect of our lives, whether in times of trouble or triumph (Psalms 139:7-10). Prayer is a belief that God can be petitioned to intervene in the laws of nature as well as a multitude of ways in the everyday lives of His people. Prayer is vital to the life of the believer.

 
Please complete the prayer request form and your prayer request will be delivered to our prayer chain. We are here to share your burden and intercede on your behalf.

POVERTY IN INDIA


India is one of the poorest countries in the world.

According to the  United Nations, 28% are considered poor.  Most of these live in the rural area.

Because of poverty, for every 1,000 babies born in India, in 2019, 34 died before their 5th birthday.

 

PERSECUTION IN AFGHANISTAN


It is impossible to live openly as a Christian in Afghanistan.

If a Christian’s family discovers they have converted, their family, clan, or tribe has to save its ‘honor’ by disowning the believer, or even killing them.  Christians from Muslim background can also be placed in a psychiatric hospital, because leaving Islam is considered a sign of insanity.
