To the members & friends of First Presbyterian Church of Glen Cove:
Join me in praying for a world where pain and fear are abundant.
As we witness Ukraine's invasion, Christ have mercy.
As we hear reports of Texas' and other states' anti-transgender legislation gaining momentum, Lord have mercy.
As we read about Flordia's "Don't Say Gay Bill" passing in their House of Representatives, Christ have mercy.
As we face uncertainties in our daily lives, Lord have mercy.
As we continue to deal with the pandemics of Covid-19 and racism, Christ have mercy.
Help us to be a people who are gentle as doves and discerning as serpents. May we be a people of extravagant welcome to the outcast, the forgotten, and the wounded. May we be a people who follow your way in our church and our lives today.
Friends, may the peace of Christ be with you all.
