Christians need to pray for all men everywhere. There is amazing power in united prayer. Pray with others whenever possible. The power of prayer can overcome any obstacle or ungodly influence and, indeed, do great things!
II Chronicles 7:14

Meet Arthur Joia:
Therefore encourage one another and
build one another up, just as you are doing,
Our loving Father,
We pray earnestly and confidently that You will support our efforts to preach and teach Your word. As Your church, great effort is being made to reach out over the world. Open our eyes to see that a special effort is needed to teach and preach in our nations Capitol and on each street that we live. Help us, Father, to say the things Jesus would say and say them in the way He would say them.
Here today, our Father, the name of our friend and brother, Arthur Joia, is lifted up to your care. Be with him and give him strength and power to honor your word. If it is your will, please sustain and help him in his needs as your see them.
We are grateful, Father, for Your love. Teach us to love. Thank you for Your mercy. Strengthen our resolve to be merciful. We wonder at Your forgiveness. Grow our faith that we might be as forgiving.
Gracious Father, help us walk above the cares of this world and turn our faces and hearts to You that we might know Your life and light.
Through the Christ, our true light, Amen.
