Prayer updates for Tuesday, April 24, 2018

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

Update:  Please pray for Steve and Kim Holtrop and their children, our supported missionaries in Nicaragua, as the country is in the midst of a time of unrest.  Steve sent he following update on the situation in Nicaragua:

“(Over the past week) there have been increasing levels of protests in Nicaragua.  At least 20 people are dead and rumors of many more.  Please pray for those in power to humble themselves and open up dialogue to a peaceful resolution.

For the present time we do not fear for our lives nor feel in imminent danger.  Daily life has been quickly altered as schools are closed indefinitely, stores are shut and gas stations are running out of gas and we are practically “stuck” at home.  We are following a security plan that includes in country communication and communication with our CRCNA Security Team.

Pray that all people use wisdom, forgiveness, humility and love for neighbor as they attempt to make small to large decisions.  Pray for families (including our kids) and bystanders who are not able to sleep due to the fear of uncertainty and insecurity.”

We express our Christian Sympathies to Harv and Lisa Scholtens in the passing of two family members this week.  Lisa’s brother-in-law, Ed Miller, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, April 17,  after a long battle with brain cancer.  Lisa’s aunt, Joyce Fett, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, April 18.  Please pray for God to surround Harv, Lisa, and their family in this difficult time of loss and for the Lord to comfort them with the hope of eternal life.

We praise the Lord for wedding of Curt and Emilee Morren as they joined their lives in marriage on Friday, April 20. Pray for the Lord to bless Curt and Emilee begin their life together as husband and wife.

We praise the Lord for the successful back surgery Larry De Groot endured last week.  Pray for God’s healing grace to be with Larry over the next couple of months as his body continues to heal and recover.  Pray for God to grant him the daily grace and strength he needs to make a full recovery and be pain free.

Please pray for Fred Zeeff as he has been experiencing significant facial pain, which they believe is being caused by a painful nerve condition called trigeminal neuralgia. Pray for God to provide Fred with relief from the pain as Fred and Edna wait for more answers and direction.

Please pray for God to guide and protect our Military Personnel as they serve our country and give of themselves to protect our freedom. Pray especially for God to be with the members of our congregation who are serving our country.  Please pray for Lee Nagelkerk as serves with the U.S. Marines and is currently on deployment in Japan, for Josh Scholtens as he serves with the U.S. Navy, for Ben Vander Wal as he is in training with the U.S. Navy, and for Meredith Visser as she serves with the U.S. Army Reserve.
