Prayer updates for Friday, September 22, 2017

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

Update:  We express our Christian Sympathies to Arie Versendaal and his family in the passing of Arie’s grandson, Chad Nykerk, who suffered from a sudden onset of mental illness and tragically took his own life on Monday.  Pray for God to surround Arie and the Nykerk family with His love and grace in this very difficult time of loss.  Visitation with the family will be today from 2-4 pm and 6-8pm at Dykstra Funeral Homes Northwood Chapel (295 Douglas Ave, Holland).  The funeral service will be held at 11 am on Saturday at First Reformed Church in Zeeland.

Update:  Please pray for Justin Vander Wal and Caitlynn Heyboer as they prepare to join their lives in marriage on Friday.  Pray for God’s blessing to be on Justin and Caitlynn on their wedding day as they begin their life together husband and wife.

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 on Wednesday.  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.  Next week a Memorial/Open House will be held from 2-4pm on Saturday, September 30 at Noordeloos.  

We praise the Lord for his protection of Val Avink and the Staff and Children of COTP in Haiti during this hurricane season as another large hurricane, Hurricane Maria, passed by Haiti this week. We praise God for the news that the hurricane veered away from Haiti and that Children of the Promise did not suffer any damages from the hurricanes that passed through the area.

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 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.

Please pray for all of our Students, Teachers, and Leaders as this week we kicked-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.
