“For you know that when your faith is tested,

your endurance has a chance to grow.

So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed,

you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”

~James 1:3-4 (NLT)~

Please pray for Gerald Hyde, Andy Taylor, and others with pneumonia.

I know of several people who are fighting a battle for their lives in area hospitals. You probably do too. Remember, as you pray for them ,to pray for their families and for the medical staff working with them. I cannot imagine, but I do understand, not being with my loved ones during the fight for their lives. I can easily understand how important those phone calls from the nurses to the families are. Please say special prayers for the many families and medical personal in this situation.

Pray for the Bean Family from Gillisburg in the loss of Tim Bean. He was a joy and a blessing to the family all his life. To know him was to love him!

Today’s Prayer Focus – Our Country

Pray for the people of our country, the leaders, the police, and all the common folks. We know our great country is not perfect, but also know it was not well represented by the actions we saw in Washington yesterday. Let’s pray for our country to turn back to the value-system upon which our country was founded, based on faith and love of God.
