Mountain Mover Prayer Fellowship – December 2014
In everything I did, I showed you
that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak,
remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said:
‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
In December’s prayer fellowship we:
- celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior.
- pray for safe travels and happy reunions for students heading home for Christmas
- pray for children in orphanages and students living in dormitories who are unable to celebrate Christmas with family
