PRAYER FOR THIS WEEKEND 
Dear Lord: We pray for all those serving at our groups and services this weekend, whether running the tech, leading music, giving the talk, running youth and children’s groups or involved in other ways. Show me how I might be able to encourage and support someone else this weekend and would you stir up my heart to be praying for our church and your people, and especially during these times. Amen.
