Please keep these prayer requests in mind as you come before God in prayer today.
Update: We express our Christian Sympathies to the De Mol family as they mourn the loss of Dick De Mol, who went home to be with the Lord yesterday after suffering a heart-attack. Pray for God’s presence to be with Dick’s family and friends in this sad time of loss and for hope of Christ to strength and sustain them this week. Funeral and visitation arrangements are yet to be determined.
We praise the Lord for the successful rotator cuff surgery that Dave Nagelkerkendured last Thursday. Pray for the pain and discomfort to subside quickly and for God to be with Dave and give him patience during the lengthy recovery from the surgery.
Please pray for Herk Kapenga as the platelet levels in his blood have declining over recent months to the point where he is left feeling very weak.
