Prayer Through the Ages
Let your word be in our mouth, O Lord, your truth in our heart and
your will in our mind. Let us think only what is good and discern
your presence in all that we do. Let us at all times be alive
to the promptings of your Holy Spirit; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Jakob Böhme (1575-1624)
Prayer of the Day
Majestic God, whose voice holds together our universe, give those who can barely walk the strength to continue as they face the stress and assault of the evil one. I specifically want to pray for those I know personally who are facing trying times. Please, dear LORD, give them strength and meet their most pressings needs. Through Jesus, who conquered Satan, sin and death, and in the power of his holy name we pray:
Lord hear us as in these times of the coronavirus we need your mercy, your intercession, your love. Without You there is grief in our hearts, anxiety on our minds, suffering before our eyes.
We miss and pray for the Rhinehardt family, Sophia Kovoor, Sean Hitch, Ryan Hitch, Kathy and Mike Weinlein and all of our friends who call Valhalla home but are scattered to other states at the present time.
For our friends working the Covid19 front lines: Alayne Snyder, Drs. Johnny and Riny Kovoor. and Erik Lindholm. Direct their hands and all their colleagues worldwide, protect them from illness and sustain their energy.
We ask your guidance for all those who are struggling, who are looking for hope. Where we have felt discouraged, renew us through signs of hope.
We pray for the vulnerable. For the sick, the aged, the chronically ill, the immunocompromised, those with pre-existing conditions, Lord, protect them from harm. Be their comforter and their strength.
We celebrate Charlie Cassidy's successful surgery and that he is now back home and doing well.
We pray for a former member who's friend lives in Germany and has been in the hospital for a month due to problems with a liver transplant that she had a year ago, now is fighting Covid as well.
For those who have died from COVID19. We ask that you hold them in your gentle embrace. Comfort their loved ones in their despair. Especially for Pat Washburn's friend Marilyn Maxwell who passed away after a fight with cancer.
We have in our thoughts and prayers friends who have moved afar but are still close in our hearts: Marilyn Van Tine, Pauline and Marty Bluver and their entire family, Barbara and Charlie Cassidy and Erna Burton.
We ask for your guidance for our leaders in Washington. That they put aside their politics and pass legislation to help those most affected by the pandemic's consequences.
We pray that we would be renewed. We wait on you Lord. When we are tired and our energy is low, we know that you will be there for us and that we can continue. We pray that others who are tired would come to you! We pray that if we or our spouse feels faint, we would come to you in Jesus’ Name Amen!
