OUR PRAYER INTENTIONS

One hallmark of a caring community is a praying community. In prayer, we can rejoice together with our members' prayers of thanksgiving. We can share our concern or sorrow with our members' prayers of petition in times of need or mourning. Recent requests for the community are shown below. There are two ways you can join in asking for prayers:

We are receiving many requests for prayers for people affected by CoVid 19 directly or indirectly.  Let us make this prayer, written with that intention  in mind, be our focus for the weekend.

By your power, gracious and loving God, Jesus healed the sick and gave new hope to the hopeless. Though we cannot command or possess your power, we pray for those in need of healing.  Mend their wounds, soothe fevered brows, and make a broken people whole again. 

We pray for all who are sick with the coronavirus, who have tested positive, are awaiting test results, or are exhibiting symtoms . May they know of our love and support in their time of uncertainty and fear. 

Help us to welcome every healing with profound gratitude and grieve every loss trusting in your promise of eternal life for all your children.

We place before you all the burdens we carry in our hearts and in faith we have confidence that you hear and answer our prayers.

Amen
