It was His Love for you and me.


If you need prayer or know of someone who has requested prayer, please call our SRBA prayer director,  Theresa Trower at 573-324-3814. She will contact our church prayer directors and they will get the prayer going. One of the great blessings of being a part of the Body of Christ is that we can call on fellow believers to support us in prayer. We have a group of dedicated people ready to pray for you. When you submit your prayer request, it is forwarded to those whose ministry it is to intercede for you and your needs. Do you have a special prayer request? 


  • Write an anonymous “I praying for you” note and give it to someone.
  • Leave an upbeat greeting on a church member’s voice mail.
  • Add an encouraging Bible verse to a card and send it to someone to encourage them.
  • Write a short appreciation note to members of your family and let them know how much you appreciate them.
  • Make plans to meet with a new believer  for coffee.
  • Let your pastor and wife know how much you appreciate them.
  • Set a daily alarm and pray for our nation and unsaved loved ones.

True Love… Jesus died for you and me!!!

True Love… Jesus took away our sin by going to the cross, so we could have eternal life. Christ died for us even while we were still sinners.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Only the blood of Jesus can wash away our sin. Jesus died on the cross for you and for me. They put Him in a tomb. God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day. He appeared to many people after he arose from the dead and before He returned to His Father in heaven. It is through our faith in Jesus that we are saved. Our  only way to heaven is Jesus. He paid the penalty for our sin.

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

Nothing we can do on our own can save us. It is only through Jesus, who paid the penalty on the cross for us.

The Bible says in Romans 10:9 “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Are you trusting in Christ for your salvation?

John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Jesus loves us so much that He died on the cross for us! You can receive Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord of your life. Talk to God and pray by saying,

Lord Jesus, I love you. I ask you to forgive me of my sin. I know that you died on the cross for me. I know that you were raised from the dead. Jesus, I know you are the only way. Jesus, I confess you are the Lord and Savior of my life. I want to live my life for you.  Jesus, please help me to do my best for you Lord.

In Jesus name, Amen!

This is true love. Accept the free gift from God!  The best gift is you, when you share Jesus with others. The  greatest gift is Jesus. Remember to share Jesus with your friends and family. There is no greater gift you can give, than to lead someone to the Savior. Christ is coming, be ready!

In Christ's Love,

Bro. Frank
