Six Reminders that God Thinks you are Extraordinary

1. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
2. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. Psalm 139:16
3. Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. Jeremiah 1:5
4. God created humna beings in His own image. In the image of God He created them; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27
5. The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4
6. O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and we all are the work of Your hand. Isaiah 64:8

You have created us for Yourself and our heart is not quiet until it rests in You. St. Augustine

Prayers and Intercessions

Prayer for Today
O God, the protector of all who trust in You, without Whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy, increase and multiply upon us Your mercy, that with You as our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Prayer for our Church Family
Grant us the confidence, Lord, to step out in faith and become the people we are meant to be, unapologetic in our love for You, wanting to be change-makers and bringers of hope, love and grace into an unbelieving world who cannot see that all it seeks is found in You. Guide us when the way is uncertain, that all might meet one glorious day at this journey’s end. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

For those who wish to pray with someone, a prayer team is available after the Service in the left-hand corner of the Sanctuary. The Prayer Team scheduled for today is: Susan & Christopher
