Hello. I spent some time at East Philips park tonight. I think the Lord might be guiding me to do an outreach at a smaller park that is kiddy corner to this park. It is called Cedar Field Park. It is right next to about 3 apartment buildings. I think I am supposed to put flyers on the apartment doors and talk with people who hang out on the streets in that area. I think the outreach involves showing some part of the Jesus film or Passion for Christ, and a song called, "What a Savior" by Laura Story. I think maybe I am supposed to purchase a video screen, a projector and some food then also shared a message. I don't really know how all of this might come together and if it is going to be a week day or weekend. Would you pray that he will guide me in all the steps of preparation and will the time comes, fill me with grace, truth and joy? Thank you so much!

Please pray for the man I met at Methodist Hospital earlier this week who has been heavy on my heart. Also please pray as I consider doing a showing of part of The Passion or the Jesus film at East Philips Park and sharing a message on Romans 5:8 and maybe catering some food. An afternoon of hope. I've been thinking about going around the neighborhood there earlier in the week and inviting people. This is a big step for me. I would appreciate prayers for discernment and timing. Also please pray if perhaps someone from Wooddale might sense a call to help me. Thank you.

My dad, Gerald Deppa, saw the doctor on Wednesday. Today, September 10,2021, he goes for a MRI and a died CT Scan to get more clarification on what is going on. He as also been referred to a surgeon. He is in a lot of pain and limited in movement; can only sit, walk and stand or little bits before he needs to lie down and rest. He does occasionally have a fever.
Thanks for all the prayers through this time it is greatly appreciated. I am able to go to work and do my job and know that God has my dad and has a plan for this.

My wife and I have been at the Methodist emergency room since 6:00 p.m. yesterday until this morning. My wife was having some abdominal pain. I was standing outside feeling anxious, so I started reading the Gospel of John. I had such peace thinking about Jesus and his words, and praying. A few hours later I started talking with a man named Steven who was vaping outside. I shared with him what I was reading. He shared with me his life. During COVID he was diagnosed with Diabetes. He shared how he stayed home for months, playing Play Station, giving himself insulin shots and starting to drink. I shared with him my testimony about how I was contemplating suicide and God brought me a friend. That same friend was my best man a decade later. I prayed with him, and he kept telling me how good it was to connect with me. Will you pray that God might awaken his heart and reveal the glory of Jesus to him? Also, my wife is getting her gal bladder removed. Surprisingly, we have total peace about the operation. Thank you.

Please pray for my dad who is going through medical issues. They are on their way to the Foley area because that is where they will be retiring. Doctors are talking MRI and possible back surgery again. My dad, Gerald, is a pastor and in ministry up in the Virginia, MN area. When he retires wondering how we are going to make it financially and who would hire him part-time after just having back surgery.

Our son, who has been so grounded in his faith throughout high school, then quieter but not defiant in college, now as a young adult is moving quickly into secularized thinking and behavior. The isolation of the pandemic has caused a backsliding in general maturity. We're about to have an extended talk with him. Please pray that God go ahead of us and soften his heart, reawaken his soul to the Lordship of God, and that he recommits to living for the Lord. We are deeply concerned and grieved (and afraid) of choices and influences that will pull him far from faith in God. God help us...

Thank God for Wooddale’s women in ministry: Heather, Maddie, Megan, Julie. Praise Heather for teaching. May I hear the good voices and scrub the lies of my past (abuse).
Pray for my Dad as he’s diminishing in health with lack of socialization. In addition, may I find Him my guide as I care for his quality of life in a time of dementia.
Praise Yahweh for working through me at work in an oppressive environment to perform at supernatural capacity! Like Moses, he delivers! May I focus on the Great I AM! May I know whose I am!
Pray for friend Katie. May she hear good voices that speak into her perceived limitations about being capable for relationships. May she see GOD as our reliance, dependence and strength to overcome mountains of depression.
May I look to Him in my loneliness to find trusted true friends who will be warriors in life side by side and not run or abandon the battle.
Thank God for Brian Schulenburg, his compassion to take me to lunch and spend time hearing my distress and praying, but most importantly walking me through it.
