Prayer Corner: God’s Deep & Healing Waters
“Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.” Ezekiel 47:12
The verse above can be part of a healing prayer journey for you. Post it in a prominent place so you can read it & meditate on this gift God has given us in Jesus.
On New Year’s morning, we will focus on some of the first & last words spoken about & by Jesus that give us great encouragement as we enter the New Year. We will begin preparing to celebrate our Lord’s Supper next week & will receive our Star Cards.
After the service, elders & prayer team members will be available to pray with those who desire it. “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.” James 5:14
Next Sunday morning, we will celebrate our Lord’s Supper together. We will listen to God speak through 1 Corinthians 12 & learn again of one of his best gifts as we enter the New Year.
In the evening we will restart our service of worship & vision at 5 pm.
Men, join us next Sunday (January 8) for a time of sharing & telling our stories. We’ll meet in the loft at 11 am.
