Sickness has hit NLC pretty hard these past few weeks.
Please pray that the Lord would not only heal those listed below, but also protect all of us from future health problems, especially as we enter the Holiday Season and New Year.
Be reminded of this important verse (among others) that pertain to our "position" in Christ as we pray to Him. Psalm 66:18 tells us, "If I regard iniquity (sin) in my heart, the Lord will not hear me." Be sure to "wipe the slate clean" before you go to the Lord in prayer. Hold no offense against Him, nor against another brother or sister in Christ, nor against any unbeliever. Come clean before the Lord, personally, as well as regarding your relationships with others. Talk with someone, if necessary, about your desire to "clear the air" between you and them. This may be difficult, but sometimes it is necessary to do so. The Lord has established a way for "righteousness" to prevail among us. May we allow the Holy Spirit to move in us, and through us, as we reach out to the Lord for others to be healed. (See scripture verses below.)
To God Be The Glory!!

(List of people in need of prayer is not published on this website. The special needs alluded to in this blog can be found on the NLC Email Prayer List, sent out today. Please pray for men, women, teens and children from NLC to be healed of sickness, disease, and accidental injuries. Thank you!)
"Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn’t rain, and it didn’t—not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The showers came and everything started growing again."
James 5:16-18 The Message
