Connect Church Prayer Gram
February 11, 2018
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions,
and thanksgivings be made for all people,”
Thanksgiving: “Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!
For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.
Pray that a hunger for studying the gospel would form
among the people of Connect Church, so we can guide and guard one another in it.
Continue to pray for Rachel, that she heals from her second surgery
and for Andy, that he fully recovers from cellulitis.
Pray for those in authority over us:
Our City: St. Michael City Council Matt Kammann
Our State: US Senate Tina Smith
