What is a Prayer Chain?
A prayer chain is a means of sharing the need for prayer with the members of Harbor of Joy.  It makes possible the immediate call to  pray to reach the Prayer Warriors by email.  We are called in Gal. 6:2 to “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”  We carry these burdens to God in prayer. You can be a part of this important ministry by calling the church office (712-338-2355), and ask ti be a participant in the Prayer Chain.  All communications will be emailed to you.

Currently we are praying for:  Our country & leadership; Ingham Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camps; purpose & direction of HOJ; HOJ leadership and staff. Pastor Tim & Bev–that God will be with them as they minister to Reaching the Unreached full time; Faith Lutheran in Sibley; The Call Committee and future pastor; Pulpit supply leaders; Louis and Jane Faulstich missionaries in Vanautu.
