BINDING SOUL AND SOURCE

Daily Prayers of the Church Street family

May 21, 2020

Pastor Jan

 

O Ageless One, you sent us Jesus who told stories of everyday living. He spoke of money, taxes, greed, forgiveness, loving, sharing, sadness and lostness. As those who listened intently so long ago, so may we listen to those timeless simple stories that never grow stale and never fail to prick our souls.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

And as we listen, we are discovering day by day just what Jesus asks of us. He calls us to live the life that he lived, and it is not easy. Give us courage, we pray, to say “yes” to that One Who Calls this day and each day. We know it will be a struggle to keep our pledge; but when we err, shake us up, turn us around, and point us toward that narrow path, the path of love that leads to Christ.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

We feel you ever so near, O Healing One, and we believe you alone are sustaining us in this era of challenge. Deliver us, we pray, especially in the evening hours when the lights grow dim, that we might remain witnesses to your enduring love. And as you invited us to do so, we again lay our concerns and thanksgivings before you, knowing that you are already moving within us to bring about a new thing:

  • A member’s depression is improving, grateful for continued prayers
  • Grieving husband is grateful for all who are praying on his behalf
  • Young member is thankful that a summer wedding date has been set
  • One appreciates the extra efforts of church staff in providing worship and other ways to keep us connected
  • Thank you for praying: one injured in a bodily attack is now stable
  • An elderly cousin infected with Covid-19
  • Son removed from ventilator, died yesterday; please pray for his family as they travel for his services
  • Healing for a younger sister whose whole life has been a struggle
  • Pray for decreased pain, increased energy for a mother fighting leukemia, for God’s guidance for her & her family as they care for her
  • One who suffers from anxiety & depression amid this pandemic
  • Peace & healing for elderly father hospitalized with heart condition
  • Pray for a son who undergoes surgery today
  • Prayers for a member who has a pacemaker implanted today
  • Healing & help for a mother who cares for a dear friend with pleurisy

We thank you, Loving One, for receiving these prayers of our hearts. In whatever way you think best, attend to our pleas.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

God of Salvation who sent your Son to seek and to save, pour out your courage upon us this day, that we might serve you faithfully all our days. And at the last, may you find us still breathing those words taught us by Jesus himself:

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
