WEDNESDAY Prayer Guide

“Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:15-16 NIV

Shelley Cadmus, Minister of Childhood Education

  • Please pray this verse for Shelley: “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me – the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24 NIV
  • Praise: For the great experience our 5th and 6th Grade Leaders in Training (LIT) Group had spending a week in Willow Park, Texas hosting backyard Bible clubs and presenting the Gospel message to other kids in the community. Our students did a great job as they shared their personal testimonies with those in attendance.
  • Pray for the children and their parents as they prepare to begin another school year. Also, pray for our “Back to School Bash” on Wednesday, August 29th.

  • Pray for the Preschool Ministry’s “Getting Ready for Big Church” on August 15th as families celebrate their child’s transition to “big church” together.
