Alright, prayer requests.
We've got a few today.
Remember, we have a few of the congregation that are headed to Hawaii this morning.
I noticed this week.
They have the snow storms there before Kathy left.
She said I I wish I was going to be here because it's supposed to possibly snow this weekend.
Will of course it didn't.
But she was hoping for snow.
Well, maybe she'll get it in Hawaii with knows but the in talking to my sister this morning.
She said it's getting cold.
It got down to 64.
So I think they'll not have snow where they are.
Anyway, we'll pray for safe.
Travels us remember to pray for Leona.
As she continues on, and then Kayleen called and asked for prayer.
For her relative Rick, we prayed for him a while back about some other issues, but he's having hip reconstruction and he asked that we pray for him.
So let's do so, Karen is having a knee replacement surgery here in a week and a half on the 13th.
So that's be in prayer for her Tanya, on the 21st.
Put back a week, unfortunately, but she'll begin the process again.
So that's be in prayer for her.
And then let's remember to pray for a youth.
We have young people and our church that need to be encouraged and we have young people in our community that need to be encouraged to come.
So let's be praying for you faster.
OK, Google prayer.
