Our Primary Prayer focus for this week is upon families:

• For families with children, that they be richly blessed through summer’s time of refreshment.
• For families with no children, for children with no parents, and for children who are separated from their parents, that they see God’s gracious hand in their lives.
• For those who are reading through the New Testament, and for those who soon will be asked to take a family life survey.


And we remember those who protect and nurture life on this earth, this week remembering all military families, emergency responders, and hospital and hospice care workers, and those in hospice care, especially Janet Schutt, Lucille Setter (sister-in-law of Caroline Henze), Lucille Klebba, Ken Mertz.
