Please keep these prayer requests in mind as you come before God in prayer today:
Update: We praise the Lord for the news that Fred Zeeff was released from the hospital on Monday after enduring a surgery last Thursday to remove a cancerous tumor from his lung. We give thanks for the success of the surgery and pray for God’s healing grace to be with Fred so that he can make a speedy recovery.
Update: Please pray for Mary Kool, Ken Van Woerkom’s sister, as she was diagnosed with cancer and as she endured surgery last Wednesday to remove two cancerous vertebrae in her neck. We give thanks to God that Mary came home from the hospital on Sunday. Pray for God to be with Mary as she will endure a biopsy in the coming weeks on another suspicious spot. Pray for God’s loving presence to strengthen Mary in this difficult time.
Update: We praise the Lord for positive Congregational Meeting that took place on Monday night as we approved the 2016-17 budget proposal and elected new Elders and Deacons. Please pray for God to encourage and equip the men he has called to serve as Elders and Deacons for the next season of ministry at Noordeloos Church. Pray for our newly elected Elders: Tom Lucas, Nate Pyle, and Gord Steenwyk. Pray for our newly elected Deacons: Brian Bottorff and Rob Visser.
We praise God for uniting Tami Hossink and Cameron Klaban in marriage on Saturday, June 4. Pray for God to bless the Klabans as they begin their new life together.
We express our Christian Sympathies to Terry and Kim Hossink in the passing of Terry’s Father, Arlan Hossink, who went home to be with the Lord unexpectedly on Sunday, May 29. We also extend our sympathies to Terry and Kim’s daughters, Lindsey Visser, Becky Dorn, Kelsey Visser, and Tami Klaban as they mourn the loss of their grandfather, as well as to Ken Hossink as he mourns of the loss of his brother.
We express our Christian Sympathies to Stan and Becky VanderPol as they mourn the loss of Stan’s grandmother, Agnes VanderPol, who went home to be with the Lord on Friday, June 3, at the age of 104. Pray for God to comfort the VanderPol family in this sad time of loss even as they give thanks for the long life that Agnes lived.
Please pray for Ade Molendyk as he received his monthly IVIG infusion on Monday and as he will endure an outpatient surgery on Thursday to correct the poor blood flow in his leg. Ade will also endure two follow-up surgeries on his leg over the next few weeks. Pray for the surgery on Thursday to go as planned so that so that Ade can make a full recovery.
Please pray for Pastor Jonathan and Sara DePoy as they say farewell to Noordeloos Church and as Pastor Jonathan prepares to begin his new role at First Reformed Church in Byron Center. Pray for God to be with the DePoys in this time of transition and fill them with joy as they enter a new season of life and ministry.
Please pray for Junior Nyboer as his COPD has reached advanced stages. Pray God to grant the daily strength Junior needs and for the loving presence of Christ to encourage and sustain Junior and Phyllis in this difficult time of need.
