Prayers

Each day in Lent, we will be praying for a person or group of people in Cedarville. At the bottom of each daily devotional, there will be a small business, school, church, public figure, etc. for whom to pray. If you need some help, consider starting by   putting names in the blanks below and letting God lead you from there.
