COME TOGETHER IN PRAYER

PRAYER is a primary work of God's people. It is a vital connection to God where we can hear from, listen to, and respond to the Lord. We encourage you to pray for these requests during the week.

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayer. (1 Peter 3:12)


SPECIAL PRAYER REQUESTS

  • Please pray for Michelle Bailey as she mourns the loss of her father, Larry Suggett.
  • Jim Eply is recovering from a broken knee.
  • Pray for Larry Embry, father of Dawn Rodriguez, who broke his neck but has survived and is walking; that he would fully recover.
  • Pray for continued healing for Sandy Shoffner who is having complications after her surgery.
  • Protection for our military, law enforcement, first responders, revival in America, and God’s wisdom for the President and political leaders.


ELDER OF THE WEEK

  • Carlos García, his wife, Mary Beth, and their adult daughters Christina (Jordan) Conroy and Jenna.


PASTOR OF THE WEEK
  • Rob Davis, his wife, Kendrah, and their son Henry, and daughter, Hadleigh.

CHURCH OF THE WEEK

There are more concerns within the body at Christ Community Church. Please come to the Lobby Counter on Sunday for a more complete and detailed list of the people who are in need of your prayers. Contact Pastor Rick to update the Prayer List.

MISSIONARY OF THE MONTH

CCC contributes to the financial support of 19 missionary couples, 3 individuals, and 6 missions agencies in the United States and 11 foreign countries.

Mike & Claire Alameda - Corazón Ministries - Tucson, AZ
Corazón Ministries began as a non-denominational mission project to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with Tucson's Hispanic and other ethnic populations. We now work closely with established area churches to complement their evangelistic outreaches and offer cross-cultural training to groups interested in reaching out to other ethnic communities.


Prayer Requests:


  • Please pray as we begin to focus on the plans for our Men’s Retreat and our summer construction teams.
  • Pray for the children of our missionaries. In order to do the work we are called to do, we must often be away from them. Pray for God’s protection of their hearts and minds, and that we would share quality time together.
  • Praise God because He has blessed us with many donations to our truck fund.
