Hey Prayer Warriors,

 Hope everyone has a blessed day with family and friends as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Christmas Day.


For all of the children that have received Christ in their hearts through the CEF ministry, world wide.

For the generosity of all those who have supported Tidewater CEF this past year.

 Prayer Reminder:

From Tracy:  “Prayer request for the CEF Fundraising Letters that are being sent out.  God will guide each individual on how to support the ministry…prayers, giving and/or volunteering.  God will provide for all of CEF’s financial needs”


From Rita Beale: I spoke with our board chair, Floyd Mays, about Stephen’s surgery.  He wanted me to convey the following to you:  The surgeons at Duke were very optimistic.  They believed they got 90% of the tumor and will treat the rest by radiation.  Stephen was able to get up and walk a bit the night of the surgery, so he is recovering well.  Floyd thanks everyone very much for their prayers!

Praying the Lord will provide us more kids in our club.

 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: His praise endureth for ever.”(Psalm 111:10)

“Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.”(Job 28:28)

 Last week we defined wisdom. This week this Psalm tells us where to start. And Job 28:28 gives us a clear perspective.

Yours in Christ,
