E-Pray: July 2012

Dear e-pray friends,

We were so grateful to see all of you who were at our SERVE India Dinner a few weeks ago. Thank you for coming! J We will be heading down to Milwaukee for a Missions Conference this weekend so we hope to see many of you friends from near there! (We will be around until Tues, 7/17.)

We wanted to have a few prayer requests typed up for those at the Missions Conference who are interested to pray for all that the Lord is doing through SERVE India. We know that anything of lasting value is accomplished because of prayer, so we count on that help. We thought we would send it out to all of you, too! Thank you so much for praying!

Please pray with us from the Scripture Colossians 1:9-14 for all those involved with the ministries of SERVE India…

Dear Father, thank You that we have heard of them and help us to not stop praying for them. We want to continually ask You to fill them with the knowledge of Your will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives so that they may live a life worthy of You and please You in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of You, being strengthened with all power according to Your glorious might so that they may have great endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to You, Who have qualified them to share in the inheritance of Your holy people in the kingdom of light. Thank You for rescuing them from the dominion of darkness and for bringing them into the kingdom of Your Son You love, in whom they have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. …

We pray for all of them …

Protection from all sorts of harm, spiritual, emotional, & physical, including persecution
