Today please pray:

  • that as we heard yesterday, we would “be the body.” That God would give us great unity and love for each other as we celebrate our God given different roles, and yet maintain a committed focus on advancing together our mission “to build communities of Christ centered people to reach the world.”

  • for the follow up from Spring into Action. Over 450 volunteers gave their time and effort yesterday afternoon to bless the school district by completing lots and lots of projects from painting to building to landscaping and beyond. Pray that the school district, those who work and attend, would feel blessed, loved, and valued by the Church!

  • for Backpacks for Hope - a ministry of Woodlands in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club. The heart of this ministry is to help children concentrate in school by being adequately nourished over the weekend so this ministry packs up 40+ bags of food to be disseminated by the BGC each weekend.

  • for the 11th Rummage Sale for Freedom that is happening this weekend, May 10th & 11th.

Today please pray:

  • for the way the gospel is spreading in closed countries! We recently received a newsletter describing an event where several hundred women placed their faith in Christ after hearing, through a specific form of media, that they were truly loved. The stakes were high for this group of Christians to penetrate into this particular community of women. Praise God for the way He works and pray that we would continue to follow obediently where He leads us as a church and as individuals.*

  • for the Woodlands Kids’ Fun Fair tonight! Tonight is an outreach opportunity for Woodlands kids to invite friends to come to Woodlands. Pray many kids would come who have not yet been to Woodlands and pray they would return to hear more about Jesus!

  • for the one to one care ministry we have called Stephen Ministry. These ministers meet one on one with care receivers to help carry heavy burdens, especially when navigating life’s difficult waters. Pray for wisdom, discernment, and a great pouring out of love and care from the ministers. And pray for the care receivers, as well, that they would grow closer to Jesus even through the difficult times.

*Remember, several of our missionaries are serving in sensitive areas so we will not always be able to share full names, locations, or their ministry.  If you are interested in learning more specifics, please contact Whitney Swenson

  • for students in junior high and high school ministries - that the truths explored this year would carry into the summer and help sustain them as their regular group meetings comes to and end tonight for this season.

  • for missionaries working in East Asia, particularly those that are traveling in and out of East Asia. Pray those travels would be safe and that they would be able to move in and out of the country freely and without hindrance. This has not been the case as of late, and one of our missionaries in particular is facing return soon so pray for this person to be able to return home - to the place where God has called this family to serve - without hindrance from the government agencies regulating travel and visas.
