Last Night at BSM
September 24, 2018
Last night at BSM, Allen Rascoe led us in meditating on Matthew 1:18-24 where Christmas came early! Yet, it is never too early for Emmanuel. God is with us through all the ups and downs of life; changing us from squishy caterpillars to beautiful butterflies!
The faith community lifted these prayers to God:
I am thankful for my new friend ****, and I am thankful for hope that I may not be alone.
Please pray for: ****–God’s comfort and healing; ****–for her courage, her hope, God’s provision; Me–God’s wisdom and vision daily; ****–her strength and power as our pastor.
**** to see, hear, know God’s voice. To continue developing the gifts of the Holy Spirit especially prophecy and healing.
For the family of my cousin, ****, who passed away on ****. He leaves behind a wife and three young children. Prayers of consolation and comfort as they and the rest of his family grieve this unexpected death.
I praise and thank God for improved health. I pray that God will pave a path for me to get into grad school @ **** for a **** start date.
Pray for ****, ****, ****, and all the families in Philadelphia who’ve been traumatized by loss in recent days. Pray for my wife ****, that she may rediscover the meaning and purpose of her work.
I pray for: employment, peace, courage, love. I am thankful for: God’s presence, the community around me.
I pray for my friends going through difficult times, it seems like everyone has a cloud on them. I pray for our country where we can’t even keep track of everything that’s wrong. I pray for healing in the midst of chaos. Amen.
Dear God, I am quiet today–and thankful for Broad Street Ministry. Wonderful service.
Guidance for myself and my husband as we try to plan for our future.
For ****, who tragically passed a year ago today. For ****, ****’s sister, who is in deep mourning. For the **** family to know God with them through this pain.
