Connect Church Prayer Gram
November 05, 2017
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people,” 1Timothy 2:1
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”.
Connect Church: Pray for members of our church who are dealing with sickness in their immediate and extended family. There have been many requests for prayer for family members to come to know the Lord-husbands, wives and children. Pray for Pastor Bert and his family-for healthy bodies, for a strong marriage, and for meaningful friendships.
Current Events: Pray for the families and schools affected by the increased use of opioids. There are many stories in the news of deaths and increased use with families being affected right here in the St. Michael area. Pray for the families of loved ones that were killed, the injured and the suspect in the terror attack in New York City.
Pray for those in authority over us.
Our City: Albertville Council Rob Olson
Our State: US House Tom Emmer
Our Nation: Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan

Requests for Spain (November 5-November 11, 2017)
Please pray for wisdom for the government leaders in Spain. The independence movement in Catalonia has created a full-blown crisis. Pray for pastors and Christians as they minister in this very complicated situation. We have 4 local Alliance churches and 9 International Workers serving in Catalonia, all in the greater Barcelona area.
For several months we have asked prayer for the purchase of a strategic property next to the Bethany House center in Alicante. Praise the Lord with us! The owners have agreed to an excellent price and we are in the process of completing the paperwork. Pray that everything will go smoothly, and that the remaining funds needed, will be received soon.
