Prayer through the Ages
O God, since without you we are not able to please you;
mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct
and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Gelasian Sacramentary (7th century)
Prayer of the Day
Dear God, Thank you for your presence with us, thank you for your Almighty Shadow. Thank you that you go before us, and cover us from behind. Thank you that you are in our midst, and that our future is secure in the place you're preparing for us. Thank you for hearing us as we pray...
For Charlie Cassidy. He will be having surgery today. We pray for a successful operation and continued healing.
For Joan Whearty who will be having hip replacement surgery this week.
For those sick with Covid19. God, heal and sustain their bodies and spirits.
For those who are in pain, suffering from illness either physical or mental, both at home and in hospital, or hospice.
We pray for our families, for every relationship most dear to us, that you would guard our time, and our lives together.
For our friends, family and colleagues where ever they may be throughout the country and world.
For the 419,000+ who have died from Covid19, their families, friends and co-workers and all those who are experiencing the consequences of death, whether recently or some time ago.
Thank you that you have set us free and that you are bigger than anything we face in this life. We lay our burdens before you, every single one, for we know they’re much safer in your hands than our own.
We pray for our nation and our leaders who lead us day by day and for those taking up new positions in our government.

For our friends working the Covid19 front lines: Alayne Snyder, Drs. Johnny and Riny Kovoor. and Erik Lindholm.
Help all hospital workers as they deal with overwhelming numbers of patients. Give them strength to carry on when all seems hopeless and they are weary.
God, protect our vulnerable populations and our elderly.
Father, provide for the poor, especially the uninsured.
We pray for those who are crying; the sad, the depressed and the anxious. We hope in the promise that God will wipe every tear from our eyes.
Father, your words bring such hope and comfort. Remind us of your strength today, may we see glimpses of your glory and blessing along the way. For victory and salvation are found in you alone. In the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.
