1. 1 Peter 4:10 “As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” Father, we bring before You our RBC Team of six as they travel to Boston to partner with our missionaries for a weekend event. We pray for safety in travel, energy, patience, and guidance from the Holy Spirit as they work in a new setting with children and with those in charge.
2. Luke 24:51-53 “While He was blessing them, He parted from them and was carried up into heaven. And they, after worshipping Him, returned to Jerusalem with great joy and were continually in the temple praising God.” Father, teach us to worship You in truth and holiness without pretense or hypocrisy. Let our joy in worship overflow in grateful praise.
3. John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation but take courage; I have overcome the world.” Father, thank You that the words of Jesus are our encouragement in times of difficulty. Bless our words of encouragement and acts of assistance to those around us who have experienced loss during the recent flooding?
4. Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.” Father God, our hearts are full of excitement and thanksgiving as we celebrate our church’s note burning ceremony this Sunday. We acknowledge Your faithfulness and blessing in bringing us to this milestone.
