We have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to pray for.
Father in heaven, we thank you for this warm and safe place to meet and share our love with each other.
Please bless out time together, the food you have provided and those who are preparing and serving it. We ask for you spiritual food also.
Father we come to you with prayers of healing and comfort for those classmates and friends who need it. In particular, we lift up all those who are suffering from this flu epidemic including Ken Lester and Ron & Linda Hoffecker.
We ask you to bless Linda Schnell Jensen, relieve her pain and grant her a complete recovery from her double knee surgery.
We offer special prayers for Carol Osgood Pratt who desperately needs a liver transplant.
We also ask for healing and comfort Mr. Gefrorer who has some serious health problems.
Please bless all our classmates who were unable to be with us today and grant all of us travel mercies on our trips home.
We ask all of this in the name of your Son, Jesus.
