This Week's Congregational Prayer:
Lord of Light, as we move from the season of Thanksgiving to the season of Advent and, as I’m thankful for the blessings and lessons of my life, may I be ever aware that Jesus came to be good news to all people.  I pray for Tom and Megan, for Shobha and Ravi, for Tony and Leila, for Larry and Linda, and for Jason and Becky, our missionaries serving around the world.  I pray for their health, for their endurance, for their patience, and most of all for their efforts in responding to your call upon their lives. May your Word be fruitful to them and through them.  For your glory, I pray.  Amen.
