Father, thank you for loving us and we pray for Your protection over our teachers and church members who are serving in the Sunday School Ministry. Let our brothers & sisters in Christ continue to serve the Lord with gladness & thanksgiving in their hearts.
We pray that You also touch the sick and take away the fears within us, especially for teachers who are still working in all schools to provide essential services for healthcare workers during this pandemic. The Lord is merciful, and we pray that all flesh shall see the salvation of God (Luke 3:6) The Lord is good and His mercy is everlasting. In Jesus’ Name we pray, Amen.
We pray for Your protection for our librarians and that they will continue to read Your word and think of new ways to engage church members to read more even in this current situation. We pray that we will be able to overcome technology barriers and confidently run the Adult Bible Class. We pray that the ABC can be a source of learning, joy and comfort for those who attend it. We also pray for the Alpha team, as they transit to the Evangelism Ministry umbrella, that they will have energy to continue to engage with past Alpha participants and that they will regain the momentum to run the Alpha course in the later months.
