  • Lakeshore Prayer Theme
    Lakeshore Prayer Theme

    Pray for the Lord to slow and stop the spread of the coronavirus in our community, our nation, and around the world. Pray that He would strengthen and protect all those who serve on the "front lines" assisting those who are sick and giving aid to those in need.  Pray for the Lord to guide His church to continue to share the Word, pray, and serve, until the day we can gather together again. 

     "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep praying for all the Lord's people."   Ephesians 6:18
