David, the king, now deposed, left the his capitol. Weeping, barefooted, with his head covered, on his way to exile, shows trust and a firm resolve in the Lord. Leaving his life and the kingdom in the hands of the Lord, he becomes a doer of God's word in Romans 8:28. "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." A great example for all of us, that the Lord is working on our behalf, through the good and bad.
"I'm Okay, I'm Good"--Answers we've often heard. At times we come to church burdened, and we go home taking the same burden, rather than asking for prayer. Don't take your burdens home with you today.
Lahaina Rebuild - Prayer for our Sister Churches - We stand in the gap for our fellow Calvary Chapels, many going through things of transition, some even going through pilikia. We stand in a tenuous place, praying for the wellbeing of the church. Don't discount our effectiveness as we pray for God's best for the church family.
River of Life Mission - As the volume of meals and ministry opportunities have ramped up at the River of Life Mission, please keep all the staff and guests, as well as the neighboring community, in prayer.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem - As the Middle East heats up, pray for the nation of Israel along with all of those in this region who have come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
