Don’t Worry About Anything

Don’t Worry About Anything?

That’s right, one of the verses we have posted on the wall in the middle classroom for the kids says it just this way: Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything.” (Philippians 4:6)

So how do we deal with prayer needs here at Spirit of Joy? You have so many ways:

  • Prayer List:
    Every Sunday bulletin contains a prayer insert showing people who need prayer. We list friends, relatives, deployed military, first responders, and members who for some reason or other are in need of prayer. You can take this list home and pray for these people during the week. Want to add someone, or remove someone who no longer is in need? Just write on the list and place it into the offering plate, or leave it on the office desk, and every week the updates are made.

  • 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 Ellen Ray.

  • 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.
