LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYERS
For the Spirit of healing: that God will touch all who are burdened with illness, weakness and in need, especially; For all who are sick, we pray for Barry Gast, cousin of Dave Kachel; Fr. Daniel Dwyer; Bill Joyce, brother of Tom Joyce; Barb Allan; Marcia Coluccio, mother of Greg Coluccio; Bill Simpson, brother of Marilee Simpson; and Peter & Pat Daly, cousin of Becky Mullin. May the Lord in his mercy be close to them with his healing power and his tender love May God’s healing Spirit renew them in body, mind, and spirit so that they may live fully, enjoy their relationships and appreciate all of God’s gifts. And those inscribed in the Book of Prayers. May the healing love of the Spirit touch them and bring them to wholeness.

For those who have died, especially Mary Wallin, grandmother of Korrin and Erik Walerius; and former parishioner, Paul Bader. That Christ may welcome them into the fullness of life where sorrow and pain exist no more.

We invite you to email Jody Fitts to add names to the prayer list.
