Prayer Focus for the Week of April 11
El Shaddai, You have given us the freedom of choice, and we have chosen to put our trust in You. You are our Refuge and our Strength. You are our God, and we are Your people. Thank You, Lord, for loving us so much. Thank You for Your grace and mercy. Thank You for filling us with Your peace, which is beyond all understanding and guards our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.* It is in His name that we pray. Amen.
Prayer Focus for the Week of April 18
Holy Lord, we need Your healing touch in so many ways – in our bodies, our minds, our hearts, our emotions, our spirits. We ask You to pour Your healing power on us and into us, that it might touch all the parts of us that are damaged, scarred, or broken and make them whole. In doing so, we pray that others would see Your mighty hand at work through our lives. We give You all the glory, praise, and honor, and we pray this with thankful hearts, in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
 Prayer Focus for the Week of April 25
Gracious God, we live in a world of violence, hatred, hurt, and brokenness. At times, we are overwhelmed by these things. We ask that You would help our hearts stay tender, that we would be moved by the things that move You, rather than growing cold or cynical. Help us to be Your people, a people who are true to Your Word and Your ways, so that we may walk and serve and reflect Your Light, that the whole world would see You and know that there is a God in heaven, and You are good. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
Prayer Focus for the Week of May 2
We praise You, Creator-God, Giver of Life, for it is You who carefully and wonderfully made us. We thank You, Father-God, that if we ask You for bread, You won’t give us a stone. We rejoice that we are Yours and that You know us intimately, right down to the number of hairs on our heads. Thank You for loving us with a love that knows no bounds. We ask that You would so fill us with Your love that it overflows and pours out of us like a free-flowing fountain to touch those with whom we come in contact, that it might bring healing to this world and glory to Your name. We give You thanks in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
We are a loving community in Christ where we Call People to Faith, Develop them as Disciples, and Send them to Serve.
