A suggestion from ‘Hoop’ re: Praying for Walks

I have the following request that will be of great help when praying for each of the walks. Please put the following Prayer Lists on the website:

Team Prayer List – to include NAME – TEAMING POSITION – TALKS
Pilgrim Prayer List – to include NAME – CHURCH – SPONSORS

This would be a great help while praying for the Walks, and for individuals involved by name.

Thanks and Many Blessings for Emmaus,

To which the Webmaster humbly says, “Amen.”  Head Servants / AWLDs, I will gladly post this information for your Walks as quickly as I can get it.

De Colores,
