Cobourg Community Church, Cobourg, Ont.
We have come through a busy Christmas season having received incredible support from our community. The Mobile Community Outreach Program, which is out twice a week, is greatly needed and has drawn community attention to the growing amount of poverty in our area. The increased attention and interest from the community and municipality is a blessing.
Pray for an increase in volunteer availability to run key community ministries. Pray that our current sermon series, “The Power of Surrender,” will encourage people to rely more on the Holy Spirit, in every area of their lives, and that they would see the difference this makes. Pray for a member of our congregation who has been awaiting a liver transplant for a long time, that a living donor will be found, and for healing. Pray for healing for one of our young people who received extensive damage to his arm in a recent accident which has resulted in having no feeling in his hand.
We ask for wisdom for The Salvation Army, Northumberland County, the towns of Cobourg and Port Hope, and our many community partners, to find lasting long-term solutions to the increasing problem of homelessness and lack of affordable housing in our area.
