Morning Prayer - 3-20-20

Good Morning! Pray today for all of our healthcare workers. God gives skill to people to employ in accomplishing his will and purposes. Pray that God would give our healthcare workers endurance, protection and Spirit empowered skill to care and heal. Pray today for our friend Pastor Matthew Schutter of the Moundford Free Methodist Church. Pastor Matt is having a medical procedure today. Pray for healing, safety and strength for him and for his family. Finally, since we cannot meet as we would like remember to give your tithes to the church as you are able. Give cheerfully online at our website or mail you offerings to the church as you are able. Blessings upon you all!
