Key Verse:

Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. Psalm 62:1-2

 

Keep Praying for Each Other
By Pastor Jon Haakana

One of the great privileges we have as followers of Jesus is the privilege of prayer. We can come to God at any time, calling on Him by name, to offer our praise, to thank Him for His blessing, to ask for help for ourselves, to lift up others in prayer. As a church we also have the responsibility of praying for one another. In James we read the following on the ministry of prayer: “Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” (James 5: 13, 14, 16b)

If you would like your staff and brothers and sisters in Christ at Mount Olive praying for you or someone you know, you can fill out a prayer card at church, call the church office (763.421.3223), or email your request to mtolive@mtolive-anoka.org. If you would like to join others in the congregation who receive prayer requests from others to lift them up in prayer, please contact us and we will put you on the prayer chain list. What a comfort to know that we are part of a church family that lifts up in each other in prayer, whether in our worship services or in our individual or family prayers.
