Prayer Focus: Methodist Church

Dear Lord God, You are the great and only I AM. We rejoice in who you are as our living God, who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. What comfort and peace this gives us, along with knowing you are in control of everything! We confess we are broken. We repeatedly try to avoid things we know must be addressed, but may also bring pain. When we are where we don’t want to be and want to move on,…

GenesisPrays: Love Neighbor

Dear LORD, we are meeting together today to worship you and to pray. Holy Father, you created heaven and earth and everything in it, including us. You parted the Red Sea so you could deliver your people from slavery. You rescued Daniel from the lion’s den. You are El Shaddai, God Almighty. You turned water into wine. You fed the five thousand. And in the ultimate act of love, you sent your only son to die on a cross so…

Genesis Christmas Shop Impact

With amazing support from the congregation, the Christmas Shop was a huge success, serving 46 families and 110 children. Each child was able to receive multiple…

Hope for Alexis Update

This family needs to have a total of $39,000 (a year’s living expenses for this family of 6) saved before the hospital will schedule the surgery. Dorcas has committed $10,000 towards this goal to completely…
