Prayer Boost #3 – Asking God for Answers

Each day, ask God for 1 specific request regarding others or your own family. Write it down and date it. Review requests regularly and write and date answers or insights related to what you have asked about.
Examples: Father, please give our neighbor restored hope after their loss.
                 Dear Lord, help our son to find a job and get called for an interview.        
“You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not! So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.”  Matthew 7:9-12

 

Wednesday Night Prayer
The Refuge will have time of worship and prayer in the sanctuary from 6:00 – 7:00 PM on Wednesday, July 8th. All are welcome.

Partnership Prayer Plan
To encourage our Refuge family, we want to stay connected by praying for a family member/s, a college student and a small business each week and our missionary of the month.  Talk to God, thanking Him for each one listed.  Ask Him to strengthen their desire to know Jesus more and build their desire to trust God and His word.

Health Challenge – Strengthen Your Mind
Speaking of vacation, try taking a vacation from technology. You could take a break for several days for a long vacation or take a few short breaks over the week. By freeing up time, you will have extra time to enjoy activities that build your mind such as research the native plants by your home, play at a new park, visit a farmer’s market or a nearby historic sight and read a classic book.


Financial Information
THANK YOU for continuing to give your tithes and offerings via mail and don’t forget that if you want to support our active missions partners, you can indicate “Missions” in the memo on your checks. Your giving is such a blessing!
