Prayer requests for this week.

Our Easter resolutions are dimming into a hum of renewed hope and affirmed commitment, Still, much of the larger world continues to seep and weep discontent—seemly obvious to depth of Jesus’ sacrifice and the marvel of his redemption of us.  We connect though this broadcast, to check in and on each other. To find touchstone and bolster. To embrace stronger connections with God’s plan and to grow closer to each other as body parts of Christ. Mindful and eager, we offer grateful praise and heartfelt pleas, from our hearts to God’s heavenly altar, as we pray…

Grant strength, grace and good medical teams to those facing serious illness...especially for the husbands of two co-workers at OU

For our country and individuals running in all elections; heal and protect our nation.

Help my sister make better choices in life and love.

Heal  all those impacted by the war in Ukraine.

Strengthen my family as we deal with the unexpected loss of our home.

Thank you for helping my roommate get his life back on track.

For a friend whose sister in law was killed in an accident.  Give her family peace.

Jesus, grant me more patience and more calmness in my life.

Help me stay constant with my family and not get distracted from you.

God be with my nephew as he starts a new chapter in his life.

For all those currently battling the effect of cancer.

God give hope to the frail, the elderly and anyone who is afraid are alone.

Give me patience, especially when dealing with those I love.

For my brother as he deals with battle scars.

God help me to more fully trust you and contribute more to your early plan .

For my sister as she struggles with substance abuse and depression.

Thank you for the blessing of family and friends.

Help me to pay back and pay forward to show the world how much you have blessed me.

Heavenly Father. . Your suffering, death and resurrection prove your care for us is beyond measure and comprehension. Hear these shared prayers and those intentions known only in the depths of our hearts. As Easter celebration dims, afford us the chance for ongoing and deeper service to the needs of your plan. Grant us your pardon, your passion and your peace, in the now and forever            Amen.

We need you!
