We ask all BCBP members to join us this Sunday, October 24th, for our BCBP SoCal Intercessory Day of Prayer. We will use the time allotted for Supplication of our Action Group Prayer meeting to Intercede for the Prayer Petitions of our Community, especially for those members experiencing work-related stress.
Since we were not able to meet as a Community to gather prayer requests because of our Anniversary Celebration, we would appreciate it if you could send your prayer petition to the undersigned on or before this Sunday so we could pray for it.
I would also request the different Action Group leaders to send their representative to our Sunday meeting to be able to pray for the needs or personal petiitons of your members.
Venue: 835 B Ronda Sevilla, Laguna Woods Village, CA 92637,
310 259 7139.
Meanwhile, we could feel the tension, pressure and anxiety of some of our members due to their work — job-related stress. This is one of the many petitions we will storm heaven during our prayer time this Sunday.
Allow us to offer the following prayers for those undergoing job-related stress specially for our brothers Lib Madamba and Arc Vasquez:
“HEAVENLY FATHER AND LORD OF ALL, WE BOW BEFORE YOU FOR PROVIDING FOR US AND GIVING US THE MUCH SAVORED GIFT OF LIFE, WE TAKE THIS TIME TO PRAY FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF OUR COMMUNITY, BCBP SOCAL, TOGETHER WITH THE MEMBERS OF THEIR
FAMILY, WHO ARE UNDERGOING TENSION AND ANXIETY BECAUSE OF THEIR WORK. YOU HAVE PROVIDED FOR OUR NEEDS FAR BEYOND WHAT WE DESERVE. YET THERE ARE THESE INDIVIDUAL SITUATIONS THAT BRING ABOUT PRESSURE AT WORK THAT SEEM UNBEARABLE AT TIMES. YOUR PRESENCE IN OUR LIVES HAD CUSHIONED ALL THESE PRESSURES AND HAS BEEN A SOURCE OF STRENGTH.
UNTO YOUR HANDS O LORD, WE PRAY, FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO ARE BEING SUBJECTED TO JOB-RELATED PRESSURES AND HEADACHES. WE COMMIT THEM TO YOUR CARE DEAR GOD THAT YOU MAY GIVE THEM RELIEF AND COMFORT AT THIS TIME WHEN THEY NEED IT. GIVE THEM A BETTER UNDERSTANDING FROM THEIR EMPLOYERS, BOSSES AND WORK ASSOCIATES. MAKE THEIR WORK A SOURCE OF JOY AS THEY DO THEIR DAILY ROUTINE. INSTEAD OF GOING TO WORK EACH MORNING WITH APPREHENSION OF WHAT THE DAY OF WORK WILL BRING, MAKE THEIR GOING TO WORK A SOURCE OF BLESSING FOR THEIR BUSINESS, THEIR EMPLOYERS AND THEIR CO WORKERS.
WE THANK YOU LORD FOR THE WORK THAT IS AVAILABLE TO US, THANK YOU FOR THE EMPLOYMENT THAT HAS BEEN A SOURCE OF YOUR PROVISION, OF OUR DAILY BREAD. GIVE US THE ENTHUSIASM TO DO WHAT IS EXPECTED OF US IN OUR JOBS THEN REMOVE ALL OBSTACLES AND BARRIERS THAT MAKE WORKING A PLEASANT ENDEAVOR.
WE GIVE YOU, LORD, THE PRAISE AND THE THANKSGIVING FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO MAKE IT SO, THAT IS, MAKING WORK ONCE AGAIN A
PLEASANT ONE, A SOURCE OF JOY, FOR US AND OUR CO WORKERS.
IN ALL THESE, WE CLAIM, THROUGH JESUS OUR LORD, AND THE
INTERCESSION OF MARY, OUR MOTHER, AND SAINT JOSEPH, THE FATHER
ON EARTH OF JESUS, OUR SAVIOR, THE ANSWER TO OUR PETITIONS. AMEN.
Rency and Mita
