Fervent prayer was one of the hallmarks of the church throughout her history. Jesus was given to regular and fervent prayer (Luke 5:16). The early church devoted itself to prayer (Acts 2:42). The Apostle Paul enjoins believers to “pray without ceasing” (2 Thessalonians 5:17). Due to the Bible’s emphasis on prayer, Phoenix United regularly prays for needs in and outside her ministry. Each week items for prayer are listed so that we can pray for each other and those who are outside our local fellowship. The following prayer list reflects various prayer matters for this week.

PURC Family Prayer List ~ June 25, 2017

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25


Pray for a blessing upon the summer preaching series of both Pastor Spotts (Ecclesiastes) and Pastor Grotenhuis (prayer) - that the gospel in both series would find a receptive place in our minds and hearts. Pray also for a blessing upon our pastors as they work together to refine and update our church's website - a substantial undertaking.  


Pray for Darrel Kuiper who continues to recover from knee surgery. Pray for a speedy recovery and diminishing of pain.


Please keep John Hobe in your prayers.  He has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and is currently undergoing chemo therapy. John is the father of Robin Irvine who has been a teacher at Phoenix Christian School for many years & is Ingrid’s daughter-in-law.


Pray for Libby’s husband, Ismael Cazares, as he recovers from recent surgery. Pray that this surgery was successful and that he might recover quickly. Pray also for Libby, as she cares for him.


Remember to pray for Pastor Phil & Joy, who will be traveling to Indiana later this week to attend their son’s wedding. Jonathan Grotenhuis, Lord willing, will be marrying Leighe (pronounced Leah) Lincoln Saturday, July 1st  in Indiana and they will be making their home in Seattle, WA. Leighe is finishing her medical residency there and Jonathan has recently assumed a position with Google; they are both members at Green Lake PCA in the Seattle area.

Pray for the expectant mothers at PURC as they progress in their pregnancies.  “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:13-14
