Urgent Prayer Request

URGENT:  Many of you are praying for our friend and employee, Willy Sebatware, who recently left to go back to his native Congo to begin the process of building schools in the war ravaged nation. We received word this morning and was it confirmed this afternoon that he has been arrested.  The person I spoke with said this is a very grave situation and prayer is the only hope he has, at this point, of ever being released.  Please pray for Willy, his wife, Lillian, and his five children who are here in the states.  Karen Burns

Almighty God, ruler of the universe, king of all nations, we pray for our brother Willy in the Congo.  We trust Your great and magnificent love for him to bring him through this most difficult situation, we pray for Your mercy and Your goodness.  We ask that You would intervene in the natural realm in Your supernatural way to provide a way of escape for Willy and to bring glory to the name of Jesus Christ.  We also ask Your divine protection for Lillian and the children and ask that You would send Your Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to be their strength and consolation during this time.  Give them that peace which the world cannot give and turn their eyes and minds and hearts toward You.  We thank You, Father, for hearing us, as we pray in the strong name of Jesus Christ, and trust in the power of Your Holy Spirit to bring a great and wondrous victory.   Amen

Prayer Request

From Carol Herman:

Yesterday, I spoke with Susan Current.  She and her family live in a suberb near Biloxi, MS and are in an area that will be affected by hurricane Issac.   She was asking for prayer for  safety for family and property.  She also asked for prayer for her community.

Almighty God, creator of life, we pray for the safety of Susan and Greg Current and for all who are in the path of Hurrican Isaac.  You display Your mighty power in the universe and yet You still the storms of life.  We ask that You would still the storm of anxiety for the Currents and all who watch and wait during this time. We pray for their comfort, that You will sustain them and hold them close in safety, through the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ who with You and the Holy Spirit, reign one God forever and ever.   Amen

We need a few strong arms to help reset the music and altar area of the church tomorrow following an event tonight.  In particular, the altar requires two good men (of any age!)  If you can help by showing up at about 8:45 a.m. we would really appreciate it….and I could probably be talked in to making an Egg McMuffin run if that helps!
