We hold in our prayers. . .

...everyone displaced or affected by the weather, especially from hurricanes, wildfires, life-threatening temperatures, blizzards, flooding, and tornadoes

...our peacekeepers and our peacemakers, for war zones around the world, for those whose loved ones have fallen in the line of duty, for God's people on all sides of all divisions, for the peace that passes all understanding

...all those who are coping with economic difficulties, for those who are unemployed or under-employed, for those who suffer from hunger and malnutrition, for those who are homeless and destitute, for those who are mentally disabled, for those in need of any kind

...missionaries overseas, especially in war-torn areas, who risk their lives while sharing the message of God's love in Christ Jesus for all people

...the victims of sexual abuse and all forms of abuse, for those tasked with protecting children and the vulnerable, that all places be safe places in God's kingdom

...children, especially those who have traveled thousands of miles hoping for safety and security, and all children who are apart from loving parents
