Romans 12: 9-13

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.


Prayer Requests:

·       Pray for those who are struggling with loneliness and fear during this season of COVID. May God grant encouragement and peace, and may the Holy Spirit open our hearts and minds to those who need our support and love.

·       Pray for all those in our church and local community who are grieving as a result of the death of a loved one over the past months or the loss of a relationship. God, wrap them in your arms of love.

·       God, for those waiting for medical treatment or an appointment, or for a second vaccine, grant patience and peace. God open the door to answered prayer and do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine.

Households of Faith:

·       May God also bring healing and restoration to all who have been wounded through these school experiences.

Prayer  (Voices Together)

Gracious God,

when there is nothing we can say,

we give you thanks

that your Spirit intercedes for us

with sighs too deep for words.

Loving God,

when there is nothing we can do,

we give you thanks

that you are working for good

in this world of struggle and pain.

Holy God,

when there is nothing else we know,

still we give you thanks

that nothing in life or in death,

nothing in heaven or on earth,

nothing in this world or the world to come

will ever separate us from your great love;

through Jesus Christ.
