Don’t Worry About Anything

Don’t Worry About Anything?

That’s right. Philippians 4:6 says,  Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything.” Of course Jesus has much to say about this in Matthew 26:15-34.

So how do we deal with prayer needs here at Spirit of Joy?

  • Prayer Line Emails:
  • We have a group of dedicated, focused individuals who have agreed to say prayers for urgent situations, emergencies, upcoming surgeries, tragedies, etc. We have two leaders who will take prayer requests and forward them to the group via email. Immediately a prayer team is launched into action. See Barb Dacy.
    Contact: 760-788-7456, PrayerLine@SOJChurch.com
  • Prayer Quilts:
    Know someone who might be comforted by receiving our prayers in the form of a prayer quilt? We have request forms in the office. The recipient must agree to receive our prayers & the quilt, so it’s not a gift or a surprise, but an informed consent to have others praying for specific needs. See Marilynn Hersey if you have questions about our Prayers & Squares chapter that meets here almost every Tuesday. Our Heavenly Father wants to hear from us. Let us remember to praise him always, to thank him, and most importantly to be in conversation (prayer) with Him. See Marilynn Hersey.
