You’re Not Too Busy for the Bible

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for resolution in the conflict between ISIS and Japan regarding the Japanese hostages, that this conflict does not break out to become something much larger.
  • Pray for the oil spill in Yellowstone that all the residents and nature in the area are able to stay safe.
  • Praise the Lord for the Supreme Court ruling in favor of more religious freedom in prisons. May this help to further His kingdom in more ways beyond the States eventually.
  • Pray for this spring semester to be a time in which God will challenge us to grow in our faith and character and for us to rise up to the challenge.

Praises & Thanksgiving

  • God brought some of us together for warm fellowship, rest, and direction during winter retreat.
  • God has provided us with safe travels back to Ithaca and warmth/protection in this cold weather.
  • God listens to us and hears our cries and acts accordingly (Luke 18:7-8).

In Christ,

Stephen & Jevon

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts,kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, whichbinds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:12-17)
