IM PRAYER LIST

 

March 2024

 

Pastor Ken: Healing for my mother-in-law, Lois Butler, who fractured two vertebrae in her neck.

Hans: A friend's brother (Michael) is on his death bed. Would you pray that God brings his sister Debbie and the rest of Michael's family obvious/evident comfort and care making all very aware of our loving Lord and savior and thereby call those that do not know Him unto life everlasting in Him.

Valentine: After David (A drug addict) was released from prison, he voluntarily checked himself into a Drug Addiction Clinic. Pray that he will live a life free from drug addiction and he will soon be a born-again Christian in Christ.

Stephanie: "Father, we pray for truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."
