Weekly UALC Prayer Requests

We corporately lift up prayer requests each week. Join us as we come before our Father with petitions and praises. We welcome anyone to join our group who prays regularly for the needs of the church. You can sign up here and receive the weekly prayer request by email.
This week, December 11-December 17, remember to pray for: 
• Oromo Church; this is a church of Ethiopian believers, part of over 6,000 immigrants on the east side. They are the fastest growing NALC church and have outgrown their rental facilities. We, along with other churches, are donating to help them with a down payment for a nearby church building for sale. Pray that God provides for them and continues to prosper their ministry in Christ’s name. Liaison is Pastor Jeff Morlock.
• Angel Tree; pray for this ministry that provides Christmas gifts for children with an incarcerated parent. Trees in our lobbies help people to “adopt” a family. Ministry Leader is Erika Mitiska.
• Call Committee; pray for those we chose to seek God’s new Senior Pastor for us. Pray for encouragement and determination as the process continues. Team Leader is Elizabeth Seely.
• Navigators; pray for the discipling ministry of Bill Mowry, that he might equip many others to come alongside new and old believers and help them take their next step with the Lord.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to give us each grace as we move among the hustle and bustle of this season. Ask to have your eyes see the people around you and reach out as God leads.

Last week, December 4-December 10, remember to pray for:
• Children’s Christmas Concert; pray for the event this Sat. afternoon the 9th. Ask that children will learn the Nativity story and families will take the opportunity to invite friends.
• Sunday Christmas Celebration; pray for the special combined Sunday services celebrating the music and message of the season. Dec 10th at Lytham Road and the 17th at Mill Run.
• Staff Transition Team; pray for Brodie Taphorn, Joe Valentino, David Bowersox and Andrew Fuller. Ask for spiritual protection and wisdom as they listen to the Lord.
• David & Jul Stone; pray for their ministry to mobilize, train, and inspire national workers to share the Gospel with unreached people groups in the "10/40 Window" where people currently have the least chance of hearing the name of Jesus.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to teach us to know God’s forgiveness in the same way we forgive those who sin against us.
