Sharing Jesus- IRL

President John Denninger at Tending the Flame 2017-
 Glen Allen, Va

Southeastern District Prayer Quilt

This prayer quilt represents the prayers of many 
who are lifting up the names of loved ones,
 of people who walk 
without knowing Jesus as Savior, 
on mission and ministry. We have sheets that list
 the Circuit Visitors 
and our iNeighborhood congregations. 
Our goal is to make them available 
at District events
 and then have a wall of prayers for display
 at our Convention in May 2018.

This quilt will next be a part of the LWML 
gathering of the Chesapeake District Fall Retreat.
Participants may want to pray for congregations
 in their zones, for the various zone leadership, 
for the mission work of LWML –
 both locally, nationally,
 and internationally. 
As you stop to color, 
think of someone, a concern, 
a ministry and pray
 for them while you work. 
You may wish
 to add their name to the design – 
or a prayer thought.
 These gifts of prayer 
will be added to the Prayer Quilt.
 Thank you for your partnership as together 
we pray for the work of God
 in and through His people-
 so that all will know.

Thank you to Sally Hiller
 for contributing this update.
