“The LORD our God does not tolerate perverted justice, partiality, or the taking of bribes.”

~2 Chronicles 19:7 (NLT)~




Today, let’s pray for our once great nation.  May people unite and turn to God.




Read the Bible in 2020 – June 13

  • 1 Kings 11:1-12:19
  • Acts 9:1-25
  • Psalm 131:1-3
  • Proverbs 17:4-5



Let’s pray for the churches that will be having VBS  this summer.  May they all find ways to teach the children in a manner that is safe for everyone.




Pray for churches unable to hold VBS.  May they fine alternative ways to reach children and their families this summer.




Most of the church camps for children and youth have been cancelled this summer.  May the churches and youth ministers be creative in finding ways to minister to them this summer.




Pray for those, both young and old, who are dealing with the corona virus situation this summer.  It was been a big “game changer” in many aspects of our lives.  May families and professionals find ways to make adjustments so the virus has only minimal impact on individuals, families, churches, and school.




Pray for churches as they slowly readjust schedules to resume more and more activities.




Pray for schools as they make plans and adjustments for the fall and especially for the activities normally scheduled for the summer.




Continue to pray for health professionals as they treat those who are sick and make accommodations for those who are healthy.
