Special prayer requests include:
Our summer Day Camp for elementary kids (Vacation Bible School) is July 9th - 13th.  Please pray that God superintends all that we do this week, and helps us communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ to these youth.  Pray for God's protection on the college counselors who travel to help us and all who are involved.

For a neighboring congregation, Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Dayton, Washington.  May God bless their new pastor.

For pastors needing a new call to congregational ministry:  (1) Rev. Greg Smith (open to Assembly of God, Cavalry Chapel, or community church context - he has the gift of teaching and pastoral care) ; (2) Rev. Wallace Kimari (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod context).  These men have a passion for ministry and many years of experience.  May God open the right door and guide them through it.

Important ongoing needs:
Please pray for North Korea.  Recently we received very troubling reports of starvation and torture from people in Korea.  Christian families, when their faith is discovered, are placed in concentration camps, including small children.  Outrageous and horrific "medical" experiments are done on their babies, as a punishment to the parents for daring to pray to Jesus. There are many orphan children who are hungry outside of the prison camps, and adults as well - a great lack of food throughout the country.

Pray that the dictator of North Korea will be converted or removed by God and replaced by a more righteous and humanitarian government.  His grandmother was a Christian but he will not acknowledge this.  He is deadly and has murdered elderly generals and members of his own family.  The elderly generals remember the horrors of the Korean War, while the younger warriors do not. The government of North Korea continues to develop missiles and threaten neighboring countries. Pray for God's salvation to come to the entire people of Korea and the surrounding countries.

These reports came through news organizations and a professor born in North Korea.  At one of our prayer times in 2016 we were led in a new direction, with specific emphasis on North Korea and a sense of urgency, then within 2 days we received three different prayer requests from South Korea about these concerns (one sample is shared below), as a spiritual confirmation of the great tragedy and ongoing danger and evil practices that the leadership of North Korea imposes on many innocent people.

Pray for our Morning Song service, that the volunteer musicians will be blessed and that the people who attend will receive grace and peace from God.

Pray also for God to bless our faithful musicians at our traditional Lutheran worship service.  Pray for our choir director, Martha Clinehens, and our new organist, Gary Peter.

Pray for the GriefShare group that meets at Emmanuel Lutheran Church on Tuesday afternoons.  The people who attend are from all denominational backgrounds, giving support and encouragement to grieving people.  This summer season our volunteer leaders are taking time off, so please pray that they become refreshed and renewed.  God bless them each one.

Pray for specific people who are out of work in our neighborhoods.  Pray for our politicians to have economic wisdom and discern what is right and just in all lawmaking.

Pray for the children who were part of our Day Camp this past summer (2016), that their interest in knowing Jesus will continue.  Pray for God to give wisdom and grace to their parents.

Pray for Pastor Mark to be filled with God's Spirit as he prepares his messages, and for a wise use of his time.  Pray that he remain encouraged and strengthened for pastoral ministry.

Pray for Pastor Mark as he seeks to finish editing a book on suicide, as a resource for pastors and priests.

Pray for Dr. Joy Punnoose, of the Native Missionary Movement, and his wife, Grace, and family.

Pray for Faith Lutheran Church in Pendleton as they seek to broaden their ministry.

Pray for countries where people live under tyrants:  Syria, North Korea, Iran, et al. Pray for the drug cartels (including Columbia) to have their power destroyed, especially in northern Mexico (all of Mexico) and for their grip on America to be loosened. 

Pray for the healing of the country of Zimbabwe after the deposition of Robert Mugabe.

Pray that God reverses the loss of freedom in Russia and the Ukraine, while also empowering the people of these lands to know and live in relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Pray for the people of Poland, that they seek God's guidance about their future economic development, legislation, as well as for God's protection on this country.  Pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit to connect Polish, Czech, Slovak, Latvian, Lithuanian, White Russian, Russian, and Estonian youth to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pray for the government of the United Kingdom (Great Britain) as they negotiate the Brexit (exit of Great Britain from the European Union), and pray for ongoing problems with emigration control and societal changes.  There has been resentment against Polish workers in the UK, and all emigrants working for cheap wages, and many of these fear for their future.  On the other hand, many British people voted to leave the EU because they feared loss of control of their country.  People in Iceland expressed similar concerns.

The leaders of the European Union have refused to acknowledge that European civilization has Christian roots, and this truth needs to come to light once again.   The people of Europe need to be re-evangelized and re-converted, which requires the guidance and empowerment of the Holy Spirit.  Please pray for this.

There needs to be a re-evangelization and re-conversion of the North American people as well, as part of a new move of the Holy Spirit on the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Pray for missionaries in Botswana and India and Central Asia to be protected and blessed in their work.  Our missionaries include Rob and Eshinee Veith.  Pray God will raise up good missionaries to come to North America. 

Pray that members of the U.S. Congress and Supreme Court, as well as President and White House officials, will be protected from the "spirit of the age" and the desire to be popular with the "in crowd" in Washington, D.C.  Pray that they be given insight and wisdom beyond what they personally deserve, then the courage to act appropriately, for the sake of the American people.  Pray that wisdom and justice will be honored and affirmed by the American people as they hold accountable and respond to those who hold high offices.  Pray for the healing of radical and deep divisions within our society.
