Prayers for America:
excerpts from Crosswalk
We pray for your great healing on our land. Shine your face on us dear God. We need you now, more than ever before. Our times are in your hands. Thank you that you are rich in mercy and full of grace. Thank you that you are forgiving and merciful. Thank you that you are strong and mighty. Thank you that you are for us and that you fight for us still today. Bring honor to your Name, Oh Lord, for You alone are worthy. - Debbie McDaniel
Pray for President Biden , VP Kamala Harris, and all his cabinet, and his advising doctors and all our country's elected leaders.. Grant them wisdom, to navigate these churning waters... to bring us safely to the other side..
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.—John 14:27 (NIV)
Our loved ones have left behind memories, that will live forever in our hearts...

All Caregivers: Being a caregiver can be VERY overwhelming... We have a few who have been in this role for quite some time, please remember them in your prayers...
Below is an encouraging Scripture.......
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."
Keep the above lifted in prayer for renewal of health & complete healing in upcoming surgeries & procedures..
Pray for God’s Word to shine brighter and brighter in this day of trial. Our Country in Crisis... Pray for hearts to be softened & leaders to have wisdom, to Calm angry & vengeful hearts... Continued prayers for Covid 19 and for steady decrease in cases, the health of our friends in our community. Pray for the protection of our medical professionals. Pray for the well-being of those who are impacted financially and emotionally due to the crisis.
Hopefully this video with Healing verses bring peace to those facing Surgeries, Illnesses, Health issues, and not certain outcomes... May you always remember that NO matter what you face, Our Lord & Savior Jesus is walking beside you. You are not Alone...
