November Prayer Requests

Grace and Peace friends,


As we enter the season of Advent, we do so with a happy and thankful heart. I preached yesterday about the meaning of Advent, the season of waiting. We wait to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we also eagerly wait for Jesus to come back for us. 


As we go about our daily lives, we do not spend a great deal of time looking around and seeing if Christ showed up today. Life continues on. For some, life is very hard. For those living in homelessness and poverty- Life. is. very. hard!

They can't wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to come. They are ready now. Today. 

  • They cannot wait to be in the kingdom of God. They can't wait to be in their Father's house where there are many rooms, and one will be prepared just for them. (John 14)
  • They can't wait to receive power and wealth, wisdom and might, honor, and glory, and blessing. (Revelation 5:9)
  •  They can't wait for the mourning, the crying, and the pain to end. (Revelation 21:4)
  • They can't wait to transform their lowly bodies. (Philippians 3)

In this season of waiting, we give thanks that we can be the church together. We give thanks that we can live into the Gospel of Jesus Christ and proclaim that all are welcome, loved, and forgiven. We give thanks for you, our prayer partners, all of our volunteers, our staff, our generous givers, our pastoral support, our Lutheran and ecumenical partners, and mostly, our congregation. We pray that the waiting is less stressful, and the season of Advent is a blessing to many, including you. 


In ministry together,



 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.
