Pray with us.
Please join us in prayer for our Lubbock Fire Department & our Lubbock Police families as our community has lost two of our very best. May God be with the families of Lieutenant and Paramedic Eric Hill and Lubbock Police Officer Nicholas Reyna. Continue to pray for Matt Dawson and his family as he continues a series of surgeries and for his recovery.
We pray that out of his glorious riches God would strengthen us with power through his Spirit in our inner being, so that Christ would dwell in our hearts through faith. Pray also that we, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (from Ephesians 3:16-19)
