I invite you to read this morning’s interesting update from the Early Seekers team:

A  BEAUTIFUL KP Morning to you all this January 11, 2014! 

We are still in need of some Spanish-speaking volunteers  so we can communicate better with our Spanish-speaking friends in need.

Please let us know if you can help donate sandwiches on a weekly basis.

Praise God for another blessed day at KP. God blessed us by holding off  the rain that was predicted and we were able to pass out lunches, clothing, sandwiches, coffee, juices, soda, water and snacks and keep warm and dry!  All the homeless are so thankful for your kindness and thoughtfulness  in all you have and are still continuing to give …..You are such a wonderful blessing to this ministry. 
Thank you for all you do!    We  love you!
Some of the homeless asked us to pray for them while we handed out sandwiches this morning.  Please take a moment to read them and say a prayer for those less fortunate. You might even be able to answer someone’s prayer yourself….maybe you have that jacket or pair of boots someone needs…

Prayer for all who are ill and all who need healing and relief from any pain and suffering. May God’s healing hand  restore them with new health and strength.  For our brothers and sisters who are struggling with addictions , also those who have been freed from them but may have fallen victim to it again…. May God’s love and mercy reach down and pick them up and help them to start over and begin anew. And may their healings  become a testimony to others who may need help and encouragement . Lord restore the broken …restore lives… that you may be glorified. Lord send us  counselors and mentors so that those who are on the road to recovery may be encouraged and stay committed  and find the path God has planned for them.

Open the floodgates of heaven Lord to bring peace and joy to the broken hearted to those whose eyes are filled with tears , to the lost and confused… to those who are seeking to find something that will satisfy ..Let them see and hear your voice speaking and drawing them to yourself. For you oh Lord are all that we need…. You are calling us to yourself …. you are all that they are seeking…. Some looking in all the wrong places… Unknowingly…  they are seeking YOU lord …. .. ONLY YOU can satisfy our souls.  You alone are all that matters.You alone can make all things right. Break thru the walls and barriers that have built up and keep them bound .

Housing for the homeless

 Financial blessings  for those who just can’t make ends meet 
Jobs for the unemployed
Lord Bless all those who are faithful in prayer and deed…. and in giving the provisions that are so desperately needed in this ministry.
Lord please meet the needs of all who read this…also  all who are in need in our church family as well. and all those ( who…. due to making some wrong decisions along the way in life) have lost so much of themselves and are out there trying to survive…. and have little to next to nothing to live on.
We ask lord that you renew and restore the hope that so many have lost.  Restore the lives of those who can’t seem to find their way back to you.
