RGBC PRAYER WARRIOR TEAM
Do you consider yourself a prayer warrior? Do you enjoy praying for others' needs? We will be launching a new team of individuals who will be praying for the needs of our congregation. If you would like to be part of this team and truly commit to pray for the needs that are sent, please contact the Church office. All prayer requests will be emailed to each Prayer Warrior Team Member, so please include the email that you would want those requests sent to. The Prayer Team will each pray individually so there aren't any meetings to attend! Prayerfully consider joining this team to support our congregation through prayer.

Chuck Swindoll wrote, “I know of no other single practice in the Christian life more rewarding, practically speaking, than memorizing Scripture. . . . No other single exercise pays greater spiritual dividends! Your prayer life will be strengthened. Your witnessing will be sharper and much more effective. Your attitudes and outlook will begin to change. Your mind will become alert and observant. Your confidence and assurance will be enhanced. Your faith will be solidified.” (Growing Strong in the Seasons of Life [Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1994], p. 61).
The verse to be memorized for this week:
"When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit."

Pray that our outreach to our neighbors at the Back to School Block party would be fruitful.
Pray for our daily lives this week at work and at home. Pray that we would do what is good, honor God, and commend the gospel.
Pray that we would be Spirit-led. Pray that we would be willing to be led by the Spirit. Pray that the Holy Spirit would show us any way that we are grieving, quenching or resisting Him. Pray that the Spirit would convict us and lead us to level ground. Pray that we would keep in step with the Spirit as we live by Him. Pray that the Holy Spirit would reign in us so that we experience His freedom, leading us into grace, life and peace. (Eph. 4:30; 1 Thes. 5:19; Acts 7:51; Jn. 16:8; Ps. 143:10; Gal. 5:25; 2 Cor. 3:17; Rom. 8:6)
Pray for any guests at RGBC & that we can extend the love of Christ to them.
