Please Pray

Many people have asked for specific things to pray for.. Hopefully the list below would help give direction for prayer. Only God knows what our experience will be like. On a general note, I have been feeling some  anxiety, so I would also ask for Peace. In the midst of newness, that God would give peace in all circumstances.

Philippians 4:4-7

4 Rejoice in the Lord always: again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your forbearance be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6 In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
