We know that His presence has endowed the Doctors to know and make the wise decisions that cover the treatments for each one on the prayer list and all others who are facing afflictions in their lives, and we know that God is at work in each of the lives on the prayer list granting them a part of His infinite grace and continuing to bless the doctors with the knowledge and wisdom that they need so that they can share with us the very best that we are granted, the best of care by the grace and mercies of our Lord.
Let this be a special prayer for our nation, that our leaders, no matter who they are, that they will be convicted through the righteousness of God's word, and be reminded that the Lord is Master over all things and that they would understand that He is the one who has given them authority to govern the people of this Nation. And let this be not for political leaders only, but all leaders; Spiritual, Business, Military, and all those who serve that they will seek the Lord. Also; Let it be known that as Christians and citizens we should be setting an example for others to see and follow, so that we can have a truly God fearing, God following relationship with God for our country once again. AMEN.
Continue to proclaim the name of Jesus all throughout the year, that He be lifted up. For Jesus has said; If we confess Him before men, He will confess us before His Father who is in heaven. And if we deny Him before men, He will deny us before His Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10: 32,33; In all these things, let us give God the glory. AMEN.
Remember this page is for anyone who is suffering or having problems that you would like prayer for. Or if you have a praise report thanking God, for a blessing for your life or someone you know, we will be glad to add it in. Just plan on getting the requests in by Fridays if at all possible, and I will do my best to see that they are added on the following weeks prayer list beginning on Sunday afternoon.
