This week, December 3-9, remember to pray for:
• Children’s Christmas Concert; pray for the event this Sat. afternoon the 8th. 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 with choirs and instrumentalists leading worship as we celebrate the message of the season. Dec 9th at Lytham Road and the 16th at Mill Run.
• SON Ministries; pray for The Good Tidings Christmas and Coat Store, Dec 3-8. Parents facing suburban poverty can purchase new Christmas toys, hats, scarves and gloves for their children at a reduced cost in a dignity-filled model. Ask for volunteers to work.
• Rick and Karen Rogers; pray for all the ministries of Athletes in Action because sports play such a prominent role in community life. Pray for access to student-athletes' lives and effective ways to share the Gospel.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to teach us how we can resist the devil and his evil work. 
“Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance. It is laying hold of His willingness.”  -Martin Luther

Last week, November 26-December 2, remember to pray for:
• Giving Tuesday; Nov. 27 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 help to thrive.
• Advent Season; It begins next Sunday. Pray for us to have grace to hold excessive busyness, worry, consumerism and frustrations at bay. Ask for a daily focus on Christ during this season leading to Christmas.
• Ministry Time; as we engage in giving the gift of prayer to people during our worship services, pray for God to show His presence among us to hear and heal. Ministry Leaders are Jody, Laura, Jeff and Katherine.
• Senior Adults; pray for this ministry in weekly Bible study, monthly luncheons, programs, seminars and outreach activities. Team Leader is Pastor Jeff Morlock.
• 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 for Gospel seeds take root. Team Leader is Jerry Cable.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to teach us how God delivers us from temptation.
