“Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.” Colossians 4:2

FROM THE DESK OF PASTOR KYLE

Friends:

Our church is known throughout our community for all the ways we show God’s love through acts of service. Many of you have asked me how we can best serve our community and stand in social and spiritual solidarity with our neighbors in this time of physical distancing.

Perhaps the best, most effective thing we can do is pray.

Taking the needs of others to God in prayer is an act of love and service that transcends time and space. And Scripture encourages us—commands us, even—to bring our needs, and the needs of those around us, to God in prayer.

This week, I want to share with you the prayer requests of a Liberty Member who works as a medical professional on the front lines of our community’s response to this pandemic. I invite you to join me in lifting up these requests in your prayers this week.

Please pray:
  • For my patients:
    • who have concerns or worries
    • who are obviously sick or unstable
  • For my staff and co-workers:
    • For wisdom and guidance about how to use our resources and supplies well.
    • For cooperation and courage
    • For my co-workers to feel comfortable asking one another for help when we need it.
  • For my family:
    • Help keep my family healthy and help me not to take this home to my spouse and children.
  • For me, and all healthcare workers:
    • That we would have faith in Christ that comforts us in this time.

Grace and peace,
Pastor Kyle
