Prayer updates for Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Please keep these prayer requests in mind as you come before God in prayer today:

Update:  We express our Christian Sympathies to Roy and Jan Alofs in the passing of Roy’s uncle, Ward Van Dyke, who went home to be with the Lord this morning.  We gives thanks to God for Ward’s life, and we rejoice for Ward as he is now in the presence of his Savior.  Pray for God’s comforting grace to be with Roy, Jan, and the family as they mourn Ward’s passing and prepare for a funeral service.

Please pray for God’s protection for Val Avink along with the other Staff and Children of COTP in Haiti, as they are preparing for another possible hurricane, Hurricane Maria, which is predicted pass Haiti later this week. Pray for the storm to decrease in strength and for its path to veer away from Haiti, along with the other islands, so that lives and homes will be protected.

Please pray for Ade Molendyk as he endured a CT scan Tuesday to check up on concerns with new growths in the lymph glands. Pray for clear results and for the love of Christ and the peace of God, that passes all understanding, to be with Ade and Bea in this time of need.

We praise the Lord for the birthday that Wilma Martinie celebrates on Thursday. We give thanks for the faithfulness God has shown to Wilma over the years and we pray for God to bless her in the year to come.

We praise the Lord for the 55th wedding anniversary that Don and Marcia Vander Zwaag celebrate on Thursday. We give thanks for the many years of marriage God has given to the Vander Zwaags and we pray for God to bless them with many more good years to come.

We praise the Lord for the wedding John and Hannah Nagelkerk as they joined their lives in marriage on Saturday, September 16. Pray for God to bless John and Hannah as they begin their new life together as husband and wife.

We praise the Lord for the news that Cindy Haveman is back to American House after . Pray for God’s healing grace to continue to be with Cindy as she continues to recover from the fall she had a few weeks ago. Cindy has moved to a new room at American House, and so please also pray that she adjusts to her new surroundings.

Please pray for all of our Students, Teachers, and Leaders as today we kick-off our educational programs and ministries at Noordeloos Church. Pray for God’s Word to be cherished and the love of Christ displayed in our classrooms and gatherings as we learn, grow, and experience together the wonderful grace of Jesus.

On Sunday evening, we were challenged to pray for our governing leaders through a message titled Praying for Our Beleaguered and Badgered President based on 1 Timothy 2:1-8. Please pray for our Nation and it’s Leaders. Please pray especially for God to be with President Trump and Vice President Pence as they have incredibly difficult jobs to do in leading this country, and as they finds themselves in leadership in a time where there is great division in our country, both politically and socially. Pray for God to guide our President and his advisors so that our nation be a place where justice and righteousness might flourish. As we pray for our nation and it’s leaders, we also pray that America will be led in such a way that allows for the proclamation of the Gospel to not be hindered so that Christ might be proclaimed freely across this land.
