Prayer Request: Mendocino Complex Fires 
Please Pray with Us   
Sunday, July 29

Friends, the two fires in Mendocino County (River and Ranch Fires) have increased in acreage as they move along unincorporated areas east into Lake County. We are beginning to see evaluation orders from Potter Valley to Lake County, and we ask for prayers for those who are affected. The bishop's office is staying in touch with clergy and lay leaders from St. John's in Lakeport, Holy Trinity in Ukiah, and other area churches. 

A prayer from Bishop Barry for the diocese:

"Most Gracious God: 
Hear our prayer for all whose lives are impacted by this crisis. 
Shield and deliver all emergency responders; 
 give wisdom and guide those in authority; 
watch over all who have been forced to evacuate, and all who wait with uncertainty. 
Comfort those who mourn great loss. Help those who wish to help 
 to be patient and effective in compassion. Bless us all, and help us trust in you. 
 In Jesus name we pray, Amen."
