M2S: LIFEBOAT Prayer Guide
The Ministry to Seafarers of the CRC
September Theme: Connection
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
-John 17:20-23, NIV
August was full of hard work and rest. Here are some updates from this past month— please join us in celebration and prayer as we reflect:
-Praise God for much better attendance at our fundraiser picnic on August 25th…and for the faithful volunteers who worked at the picnic!
-God protected us from any new technology issues this month— we do not take that for granted.
-As of August 28th, 59 people have downloaded our new app!
-Praise God for meetings scheduled with people from local ministries.
-Michelle, David, and Patty all returned home safely from their vacations and are grateful for your prayers!
-Father Andrew and Doni went to the North American Maritime Ministry Association conference, where they learned from and connected with people from around all over North America who serve seafarers! Father Andrew shared about the history of the maritime ministry in Montreal and about how Apostleship for the Sea and Ministry to Seafarers work together.
-Our September newsletter was completed and sent to print. We are so thankful for the design work done by Paul Harman.
Thank you for praying!
