Prayer requests

Please be in prayer for the following

Laci Bridges-We need prayers for our transition to a family of four. Hannah loves her baby brother, but has become extra whiny and is also going through the terrible twos.

Chantel-Prayer for peace for my sister and her family. They rescued a dog and had to return it to the shelter. The dog has bitten multiple people. They hoped a trainer could help them with behavior management, but unfortunately, the dog had to be returned to the shelter for the safety of others. This has been an emotional time for all of them because they love the dog, but know that it is unsafe to have him.

- Prayer for my uncle who lost his 4 fingers and thumb on his left hand due to a sawing accident. He will undergo surgery and we are unsure if he will be able to have any of these reattached. His purpose in life is woodworking and we are worried for his health both physically and mentally.

Kim Spence-Pray for Kim as she continues to recover at home from surgery!

Kristi-Pray for Kristi who is still on bed rest and baby Walsh. Praising God as each week goes by and baby Walsh and mom are doing great.

Kelly Rowland's baby Cora-We have made it two weeks with the cast but would definitely still appreciate prayers. The past two days Cora has been tugging at the cast more and it seems to be irritating her more. :( We go for a follow-up dr. appt. tomorrow so hopefully they will be able to tell us if there is anything that seems to be causing it such as a pressure sore or something and hopefully tips for how to help her cope.

Danielle-prays needed for Danielle's brother and sister in law as they struggle with their marriage.

Prayers for the Ziperman and Heidtke families

Continued prayers for Caroline Reid as she in now at home and under hospice care.

Begin Again

by Joyce Meyer - posted February 13, 2014

They set out from Rameses on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the day after the Passover the Israelites went out [of Egypt] with a high hand and triumphantly in the sight of all the Egyptians, while the Egyptians were burying all their firstborn whom the Lord had struck down among them
—Numbers 33:3–4

Are you doing what you really believe you should be doing at this stage in your life, or have you allowed fear and a lack of confidence to prevent you from stepping out into new things—or higher levels of old things? If you don’t like your answer, then let me give you some good news: It is never too late to begin again! Don’t spend one more day living a narrow life that has room for only you and your fears. Make a decision right now that you will learn to live boldly, aggressively, and confidently. Don’t let fear rule you any longer.

It’s important to note that you can’t just sit around and wait for fear to go away. You will have to feel the fear and take action anyway. Or, as John Wayne put it, “Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.” In other words, courage is not the absence of fear; it is action in the presence of fear. Bold people do what they know they should do—not what they feel like doing.

Lord, show me any narrowness in my life and help me to take the steps of faith that break the rule of fear over my life. Amen.
