Prayer List

Our prayer list is cleared monthly.  If you know someone who should be on the list, please add their name to the list in the church Narthex each month.

 

Pray for those who are ill, suffering or shut-in:
Heavenly Father, giver of life and health: Comfort and relieve your sick servants,  and give your power of healing to those who minister to their needs, that they may be strengthened in their weaknesses and have confidence in your loving care; through Jesus Christ our Lord. – Amen

 

Pray for those celebrating birthdays:
O God, our times are in your hand: Look with favor, we pray, on your servants as they begin another year. Grant that they may grow in wisdom and grace, and strengthen their trust in your goodness all the days of their lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. – Amen
