Community Prayers 01.16.11

As a community, we can support and celebrate with each other through prayer. Join us in praying for those both spoken and unspoken during Sunday liturgy.

Prayers of Thanksgiving. For …

  • Who you are and that you’re very big, powerful, mighty, loving and care for people that we don’t notice. (Evan)
  • The intricacies and talents we’ve been given. (JR)
  • Roommates who just had a baby. (Chris)
  • My brother finally making a decision to ask his girlfriend of nine years to marry him. She said yes. (Jenny)
  • My brother who has been without alcohol for nearly a year. (Julie)
  • Those who have helped me out throughout this difficult season of the year. (Becky)
  • This time in my life. I pray that I can uplift the Lord with my new career, family, and community. (Lottie)

… let us bless the Lord.  Thanks be to God.
