Our faith teaches us that God is always with us and hears our every need. Yet within a faith community there is comfort and peace drawn from knowing that our needs, our situations, our concerns are being lifted to God in prayer by others.
During your time of prayer you are invited to lift the prayers, concerns, and joys (in bold) listed below. They are in chronological order, with group listings of those with health and medical needs, those who reside in nursing care and assisted living facilities and those who serve in the armed forces listed at the end. Thank you for taking time to lift each to God in prayer. Blessings and Peace.

Christian sympathy to the family and friends of Karen Shepard, Cindy Kinder’s mother, who passed away this morning. Karen will be cremated under the direction of Bram Funeral Home. Services are pending at this time.
Christian sympathy to the family and friends of Harold Voggesser who passed away Tuesday, September 15, 2020.
Sherri Strating got great news last week when she got a second opinion. After being told by a different doctor a few weeks ago that she had 18 months to live, she learned today that her liver is just fine and she should be a good candidate for a bone marrow transplant! She has an appointment at Mayo in early October. The toughest part is that she needs to go through some really aggressive chemotherapy to wipe out her immune system in order to improve the chances that her body will not reject the transplant. So she asks for prayers through this process.
