12/16/15 Prayer Request

The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for “ ‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “ ‘For we are indeed his offspring.’ Acts 17:24-28

Prayer is a life-changing experience and a key component for all of the ministry at St. Clair. It is about embracing God and ourselves in all our complexity and mystery and realizing even when it seems we are all alone that God is actually not far from us. It is through prayer that we feel our way toward God and find Him. Prayer generates hope. Because of this we meet in the chapel several times a week for prayer!

This week I want to request the you lift up our weekly Prayer Meetings. These prayer meetings normally have about 25 men in attendance, who cry out on behalf of the violence in the camp, administration, the church, the unsaved, illness, injustices, and sins in their own lives. These men look forward each week for these Prayer Meetings and have recently often been disappointed due to security canceling it. Please pray that these men will be able to gather and pray this week! Pray that they would seek God and their life’s would continue to change and that their hope in God would be strengthened.
