Our Primary Prayer focus for this week is upon families:

• For families with children, that God would touch them amid their hurried and hectic lives – that they might hear his Word of grace.
• For families with no children, for children with no parents, and for children who are separated from their parents – that they see God’s gracious hand in their lives.
• For those who feel as though they have no family – that their relational needs be met through Christ and his body on earth.
• For all the families that will be blessed internationally this year through the ministry of the L.W.M.L.


And we remember those who protect and nurture life on this earth, this week remembering all military families, emergency responders, and hospital and hospice care workers.
