"Until now you have not asked for anything in My Name. Ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full"  John 16:24
 
     We are blessed by the opportunity to bring your prayers of Thanksgiving and Petition before the Throne of Mercy and Grace, knowing Our Lord Jesus Christ hears and answers every prayer in His Perfect and Loving Will, and in His Perfect Time. 
 
     We meet regularly for times of intercession and invite you to notify us of your needs by emailing this information, in confidence, to Pastor Bryan at bchurch@slbc.church or the Church Office at jnegley@slbc.church . The ways in which we communicate prayer needs with our assembly are, by means of our online Prayer Connection and during our Sunday Morning Worship.  You are also welcome to call the Church Office directly at 783-3316 Ext. 201. 
 
     We also seek to be bringing the many important prayer concerns of our Kingdom Workers before the Throne of Grace. Due to the need to protect the security of our Kingdom Workers, we are not able to put these requests on our Website. However, the SLBC OneMission Committee makes available a written Prayer Journal of concerns shared with us by our Missions Families. We encourage all to obtain a journal and use this tool to assist in meaningful prayer for those serving Jesus Christ in the field.
    
      In a list of important Christian qualities that we need in our lives and thus in the life of a local church family, the Apostle Paul says in Romans 12:12–13, that we needs be “continuing steadfastly in prayer, distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.” May the Lord help us to fulfill this stewardship.
 
Thanks for Praying,
Pastor Bryan
