Prayer requests

We closed with the Prayer of St. Andrew.

Pray for the success of Justice Knox and the issues of injustice that take place in our city. 

Keep Gary Harper in your prayers for new employment, and Kristi as she searches for work. 

Keep Emmitt and Steve in your prayers as they are going before a judge about the break-in the other week.

Roy’s friends who we prayed for last week: one, Ray Philippi has passed, the other is still alive, Valentine, but going through difficulties with assistance and care.

For Jim and Pam Brock. 

Blessings on the Brotherhood, for those here and not here. 

Paul and Mary Lee Bergeron. 

For the Ernest and Geiselmann families who lost Reenie. 

Prayers for Dr. Bob Barnes and for Jim Bowers, and also prayers of thanksgiving for this Brotherhood and all that we do.
