BINDING SOUL AND SOURCE

Daily Prayers of the Church Street family

May 22, 2020

Pastor Jan

 

O Silent One, you lightly wrap us around with tenderness. From the pink gauze of sun’s dawning, to the quiet reverie of verdant valleys in the distance, you speak to us. “Come, behold my glories,” you say. From the flushed row of roses to the mist that hangs over the edge of the garden, you offer us treasures that are ours for the taking. We praise you, O Creator, clothed in holiness. You come to us in quiet kindness and leave us marveling in the shimmering stillness.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

O One Who Walks With Us, in the hours to come, may we follow the teaching of the apostle of long ago. May the peace of Christ rule in our hearts this day, and may we be clothed with compassion and kindness. Keep us, Good Lord, from malice, slander, and abusive words. Wrap us around with your humility, gentleness, and patience. And above all, may the forgiveness of Christ overflow in us, that we might stretch out a gracious hand to those who may harm us in any way.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

Holy is the time you spend with us, O Patient One. Drape us with the serenity of your Son, that we may wait calmly for your guidance and for your answers to the pleas of our hearts. You ever hear us, so with confidence we raise these prayers to you:

  • Prayers appreciated: a heart procedure on Thursday was successful
  • One is grateful for an upcoming birthday and for all the blessings he has received
  • Gratitude: an ill member continues to inspire others with his faith, courage, and optimism
  • Thanksgiving for a sister who is recovering well following surgery
  • A son whose father died on Tuesday & stepmother died Thursday – may he & his family feel the Lord’s presence and comfort
  • Pray for a faithful member having foot surgery today, that all goes well
  • Traveling mercies for grieving sister & daughter flying to a funeral today
  • Guidance for one who cares for his wife who has memory loss
  • A mother who is dealing with leukemia & her family who care for her
  • For our loved ones who are plagued with depression & loneliness
  • Peace & healing for elderly father hospitalized with heart condition
  • Healing & help for a mother who cares for a dear friend with pleurisy

Thank you, O Lord, for blanketing us with your love, particularly during these weeks of separation from dear ones. May we learn the lessons you have sprinkled throughout this interval, for we know you are ever working on our behalf, regardless of our circumstance. And all these petitions we gladly lift to you, for you are our Beginning and our End, Father of the Son who taught us to pray:

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.
