PRAYER TABLE ADDENDUM
Torre — I’m sorry, but my hands were so cold Saturday that I dropped one of the pages out of my notebook. Please add this to the Prayer Table report. (It’s the last two people who came by.)
t–COREY — This young man who seemed very “edgy” stopped when we asked if he wanted prayer.

LISA — This woman asked for prayers for general safety and provision in these hard times.
