Good morning prayer warriors!
He Is Risen! He is Risen Indeed, Alleluia!
The members, volunteers, and supporters of Church on the Street are so thankful for you and your gifts of prayer. There are many prayers being lifted up this month, and you, too, are included in them. May the Lord bless you and keep you!
At our April worship, a gal who came to Laundry with Love told us she hadn't been to church in over ten years. She cried as she received Holy Communion. Thanks be to God!
This month, spread out 3000 eggs and let children and families find joy in the surprise of Easter. The reminder that Jesus Christ rose and continues to rise for us; the sinner, the forgotten, the lost sheep. He is for US and he is for YOU!
This monthe, we had someone return to God's fold after being released from prison. She joined us and was NOT surprised that everyone treated her with the same love she had received before. God is good.
We lift up these prayers to our Father in Heaven. The one who knows our hearts and our needs and who always welcomes us back into His fold.
Lord, In your Mercy...Hear our Prayer. Please pray for our members in need. These prayers include...
