Please pray Jesus Christ would carry out the following for Jung-won, Ui-seop, Ha-young, Ye-young, Eun-tae, In-sook: 1. Give all of us the kingdom of God and God's righteousness that you promised and make it happen. 2. Let the Son of God fulfill the Father God's will to us to the end, and let us see this and appreciate it when all our bodies are alive. 3. Do not allow us to do what we want or seek, but do for us what the Son of God wants to do, and only let it go well. 4. Lord Jesus, please send forth plenty of workers for the harvest that you talked about(Matthew‬ ‭13‬:‭39‬) and command that your intended harvest be accomplished among us.

My son Chad attended your church years ago. He is currently battling alcoholism and homelessness. He texted me last Wednesday to say that he was okay, had been in the hospital and that he had had a seizure. Please pray for this child of God. Thank you and bless you all. Love Chad's Mom

Please pray Jesus Christ would carry out the following for you and us(Jung-won, Ui-seop, Ha-young, Ye-young, Eun-tae, In-sook): 1)Please set us and all those who are or will be related to us in anyway apart for holiness in the truth (your word), and please let them be gathered into heaven as our treasure without fail. 2)Lord Jesus, I ask you to make us all your true possessions. I want God to choose us as His peculiar treasure.. ; “Everyone the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will certainly not turn away. No one can come to me unless the Father — the One who sent me — draws him.” ‭‭- John 6‬:‭37,44‬ “Just as the Father raises the dead and makes them alive, so too the Son makes alive anyone he wants.” - John 5‬:‭21‬ “For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself, Israel for his own special treasure.”‭‭- Psalms‬ ‭135‬:‭4‬ ‭ 3) Here we send our delegation to the Jesus Christ the Lord and seeks terms for shalom with Jesus, and here we ask you to be our only King. ;“Or else, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace.” - Luke‬ ‭14‬:‭32‬ 4) Sprinkle your water upon us, cleanse us from all our uncleanness and from all our idols. Take the stony heart out of our flesh and give us a heart of flesh, and put your Spirit inside us.(Ezekiel‬ ‭36‬). Grant us the true freedom you promised.(John8:32). 5) I ask that the Son of God designate us as those who directly reveal the Father God. As a result, we all hope to have true knowledge of the only God of truth and of the King Jesus Christ whom He sent. ;“And eternal life is this: to know you, the one true God, and him whom you sent, Yeshua the Messiah.” - John ‭17‬:‭2‬-3 6) Please send your angels and command that your intended harvest be accomplished among us.
