一﹑本週經文Scriptures：提摩太後書1：8-12 2 Timothy
8 你不要以給我們的主作見證為恥，也不要以我這為主被囚的為恥；總要按神的能力，與我為福音同受苦難。9 神救了我們，以聖召召我們，不是按我們的行為，乃是按他的旨意和恩典；這恩典是萬古之先，在基督耶穌裡賜給我們的，10 但如今藉著我們救主基督耶穌的顯現才表明出來了。他已經把死廢去，藉著福音，將不能壞的生命彰顯出來。11 我為這福音奉派作傳道的，作使徒，作師傅。12 為這緣故，我也受這些苦難。然而我不以為恥；因為知道我所信的是誰，也深信他能保全我所交付他的，直到那日。
8 So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God. 9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, 10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 11 And of this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher. 12 That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day.
二﹑禱告事項 Prayer Items:
Pray for the Reopening in the US. Although COVID-19 epidemic has not subsided significantly, all the fifty states of the US has reopened limited due to economic concerns. Pray that the epidemic would not skyrocket after people go back to work.
Pray for Racial Inequality in the US. Racial inequality is not only a malady in US history but still a current problem in today’s US. Pray that the Lord would change people’s hearts so that people would not judge others by their skin color and the US would become a nation loving justice and full of mercy.
- 為愛心行動禱告：教會以實際行動幫助El Monte社區裡生活困難有需要的朋友們。求神。求神感動弟兄姊妹，以奉獻或捐贈食物的方式參與，讓El Monte 社區裡有需要的人實際感受到從基督來的愛。
Pray for Operation Compassion. Our church just launched Operation Compassion to help people living in El Monte, who are struggling to put food on their tables.
