There is some serious stuff going on in the world, and in our own country. Please take some time out from whatever you are doing and implore God to have mercy on:
* The doctors, aid workers, researchers, and policy makers who are working to get ahead of the Ebola Outbreak. Cry out to God for the 1,000s who are sick and dying, and for their loved ones.
* Iraq. The Yazidis, Christians, and other minorities targeted by ISIS. Pray for ISIS soldiers and leaders as well. Our battle is not against flesh and blood.
* For justice in the wake of the Michael Brown shooting. Not just retributive justice, but for the presence of peace and fairness. Racism is a terrible sin, and it burns underneath the surface of our country. Pray for the frustrated and disenfranchised who have no voice. Pray the powerful will have new hearts. Pray for justice.
* For God’s Kingdom to come, and his will to be done, here on earth as it is in heaven: Ukraine, Sudan, the Gaza strip… lift up world leaders, the poor, the victims, the perpetrators. Chris

This Sunday (Aug 17th) the Everyday Creativity Group will be having our first service project, partnering with the Hudson Pointe Nursing Home in Riverdale. We’ll be having a help-portrait event to bring hope and encouragement to the residents. It’s a way to give the meaningful gift of a professional portrait to those who normally wouldn’t expect to receive one, no strings attached. There are a lot of logistics involved, and it’s our first time to do a project together. So please pray with me:
Father, thank you for the residents at Hudson Pointe. Use the Creativity Group to bring your love, hope & encouragement to them this Sunday in a special way. Provide for all the logistics, and bless Everyday Church’s continued partnership with Hudson Pointe. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ - Paul, Acts 20:35
