Thank you for your prayers Leah. With all that's going on this time of year, it's hard to keep available spiritually and stay connected to God and individuals. Please pray for a peaceful heart that keeps these priorities at the forefront. 
Rev. Paula Dallas
Thank you Prayer Force!  First a praise report!  This time last year my husband and I were estranged from our son.  This year we reconciled and spent the Thanksgiving holiday together.  Please pray for my strength during the Christmas season.  This is my second year in FT ministry and I find it overwhelming to be a pastor, wife, mother, grandmother and friend!

Harlem UMC, Minister of Music

1. Church: As our Harlem area is busy growing: roads widening, I-20 exit/entrances expanding, and woods becoming roof tops….pray that ours will not be a church of yesterday, but a church the Holy Spirit is pleased to call our new neighbors into. Pray we would be ready to welcome them and worship with them in Spirit and Truth. 
2.Music Ministry: May the generations in our worship choir find ministries beyond our walls in 2023 that proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord of Lord and King of Kings!  Lead us, God to develop our singers to shine brightly as heralds of Your Son’s soon appearing! 
3.Family Prayers:  Continued healing and stamina from colon cancer surgery I had a few months ago, and this week’s painful bought with enteritis (likely caused by scar tissues from that surgery). My husband James and I both just began new weekly injection treatments for type 2 Diabetes and pray for good outcomes. Pray blessings over our son Forest’s (26) first year of full time service at Lincolnton FUMC in youth and music ministry. Our daughter Hannah (24) and new son-in-love Justin are newlyweds since March and now expect their first child in August! We give thanks for our expanding family, praying good health and blessings over them!
