Disciples' Prayer Request - January 31, 2015

The 1st quarter of 2015 classes have begun, well 3 of 5 have begun as Dixon was on lockdown. 

It was to see many returning faces at Sheridan and a good number of new students. As expected several no shows, some of whom I was told, did not get a pass. Others who because of other commitments, mostly school, would prefer being transferred from the afternoon to the evening discipleship class. 

Please pray that I can resolve with Sheridan's staff to get those who did not get a pass to get passes and those who would like to be transferred for legitimate reasons get approved for transfer.
Thanks for you commitment to a new season of prayer
To Him be the glory


Currently there are 182 subscribers to Disciple Prayer Requests, I'm hoping to raise that number to 200, if you know a prayer warrior, invite them to subscribe by sending an e-mail to SOCPM@SOCPM with 'Subscribe Disciple Prayer Requests' as the subject.
