Daily Prayers of the Church Street family

April 24, 2020

Pastor Jan


From the rising of the sun, to the going down of the same, may Jesus Christ be praised! Lord, you know our faults even before we name them. You have heard our prayers offered these past weeks and you know what concerns us most deeply. Through the sacrifice of his life and the resurrection of your Son, we know that nothing is impossible for you. Christ has ripped apart the barriers that separate us from your love. And as you know us so well, and you love us so deeply, fill us all with hope, we pray, and grant us your peace.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

Forgive us, O Loving Creator, when we don’t give ourselves permission to rest or time to stop and take in the glories you have placed in our midst. And forgive us also for not loving ourselves enough, for too often neglecting our own needs. Help us make time to remember that it was you who knit us together in our mother’s wombs and that we are wonderfully made. Send your Spirit among us this day, that we might receive the joy you intend for us.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

And as you taught us to reveal our innermost thoughts to you, we sincerely offer our gratitudes and our burdens, knowing they will be lovingly received:

  • Gratitude: A faithful member celebrates her latest cancer scans; she is progressing well & is given a reprieve from a harsh medication
  • Gratitude for monies donated thus far to help a family replace a roof
  • Thanksgiving: A member joyfully celebrates her final chemo treatment
  • Prayers for a cherished mother, newly diagnosed lung cancer
  • Pray for a hospital administrator and his staff as they plan the opening of their facility in early May; that all involved might remain safe
  • Prayers for a peaceful death for a beloved mother
  • Beloved uncle with COVID-19 and multiple complications
  • Continued protection for all healthy first responders and healing for those who contracted the virus while serving in the line of duty
  • That governments everywhere be prudent as they move toward reopening public businesses and spaces
  • Business owners who are stressed financially and emotionally – for healing and stability to come
  • Pray for a wife mourning the death of her husband on Wednesday
  • A young cousin very ill, prognosis is not promising and for his family

We sense your presence in each situation, O Gracious One. And in your own silent way, work your miracles among us.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

Keep us bound together as one community, Faithful Lord, as the path that lies before us is indistinct; but we know our future is in your loving hands:

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.
