Unison Prayer Logo
Lord God, we come to worship and to find rest for our busy lives. We come anxious, worried and unhappy over various things. We need a day of hope and gladness. We are aware we have disobeyed you and broken covenants with you and others. We need a day of forgiveness and release from our guilt over things done and left undone. We are conscious of confusion from various groups, theories and opinions. We need a day of truth. Grant this be a day of rest, gladness, hope and truth through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Friday Coffee 20200207

Everyone enjoyed hot coffee, donuts, and the message from Pastor Marvin.

Please be patient with me - Remember that I have an organic brain disease for which I have no control.


Talk to me - Even though I cannot always answer you, I can hear your voice and sometimes comprehend your words.


Be kind to me - For each day of my life is a long and desperate struggle. Your kindness may be the most special and important event of my day.


Consider my feelings - For they are still very much alive within me.

Treat me with dignity and respect - As I would have gladly treated you.


Remember my past - For I was once a healthy, vibrant person full of life, love and laughter with abilities and intelligence.


Remember my present - I am a fearful person who misses my family and home very much.


Remember my future - Though it may seem bleak to you, I am always filled with hope for tomorrow.


Pray for me - For I am a person who lingers in the mists that drift between time and eternity. Your presence may do more for me than any other outreach of compassion you can extend to me.


Love me - The gifts of love you give will be a blessing from which will fill both our lives with light forever.
