This week, December 9-December 15, remember to pray for:
• Advent Midweek Worship; pray for this Thursday noon worship. Amid the season’s hustle and bustle ask that the reflections on God’s Word, singing of Christmas songs and Holy Communion may be an oasis to worshipers.
• Children’s Christmas Concert; pray for the event this Saturday afternoon. Ask for joy as the children learn the Nativity story and families are together singing Christmas carols.
• Angel Tree®; this ministry connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts. Names of children and gift ideas are available. Pray for volunteers to purchase and deliver gifts with the Gospel by Christmas. Ministry Leader is Erika Mitiska.
• This season; pray for the poor and the helpless, the cold, hungry and the oppressed, the sick and those who mourn, and the lonely and the unloved.
• SON Ministries; pray for the participants in the Good Tidings Gift Store, where the suburban poor are invited to purchase Christmas gifts for their families at subsidized rates. Pray for the prayer ministry that is part of this event.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to teach us the “Amen” – the conviction of God’s answer to our prayers in the future and the fulfillment already present in Christ.
“A Christian should resemble a fruit tree with real fruit, not a Christmas tree with decorations tied on.”  -John Stott
Last week, December 2-December 8, remember to pray for:
• Giving Tuesday; Dec. 3 is designated as a day for people to give donations, time or goods to kick off the charitable season. Pray for local people or organizations (like IFI or SON Ministries) who need financial help to thrive.
• Women’s Bootcamp; pray for this weekend (Dec. 5-8) that women will be refreshed and renewed as the Lord speaks to each heart. The focus will be from the book “Captivating” by Stasi Eldridge – learning who God intends us to be and the spiritual battle for our hearts. Ministry Leaders are Amy Adams and Peggy Valentino.
• Christmas for Internationals; pray for the students who will hear, perhaps for the first time, the Biblical story of the birth of Jesus this Friday at The Christmas for Internationals event. Ask that Gospel seeds take root. Team Leader is Jerry Cable.
• Advent Worship at UALC; pray for our combined worship with choirs at our Lytham Road campus only this Sunday (12/8) at 9, 11 am and 2 pm. Pray for the many details that need to come together. Most importantly ask for God’s presence to be strong and He be glorified and honored.
• Helping Appalachian Rural People (HARP); pray for this ministry at they distribute Christmas stockings and gift baskets to residents of southeastern Ohio. Pray that the love of Jesus shines forth.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to open our hearts to God’s Kingdom, power and His glory.
