Daily Prayers of the Church Street family

April 7, 2020

Pastor Jan


Come, Holy Spirit, and visit us in our homes, workplaces, or wherever we find ourselves this day. May your personal touch be upon each one caught up in this mysterious virus malady and turn our thoughts to you as our Anchor. As your Son showed authority over wind and wave, bring peace and calm to each one who is troubled or in danger, we pray. Brush away those burgeoning clouds of dread and despair that hang too close above us. May we hear again those words you spoke so clearly in the presence of your first disciples: “Peace be still!” And it was so.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

Especially, Gracious Lord, ease the hearts of those who suffer this day, and particularly accept these concerns and gratitudes offered by members of our church family:

  • Gratitude: physician friend in Brooklyn hospital remains virus free – continued prayers requested for her & her weary colleagues
  • Gratitude for members of our Armed Forces, the National Guard, and their leaders as they help America through this crisis
  • Thank you for praying – a daughter’s spine pain has disappeared
  • Prayers for academic success of students in online learning situations
  • Prayers for a nearby friend, diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor
  • Traveling mercy for a bereaved couple; prayers for a grieving husband
  • Prayers for a member who feels God is leading her to a new ministry
  • Safety for and blessings upon all healthcare teams & first responders who risk their lives to offer healing to others

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

With the quiet breath you yourself breathed into us, in these moments of calm, we now reflect upon our most recent regrets . . .

Forgive us, O Merciful Father, wash us clean, and remember our sins no more.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

Thank you, Most Holy God, for gathering us into a beloved community, for your blessings too numerous to count, and for hearing our prayers, as we offer them in the name of Christ Jesus, who lives and reigns with you forever and ever:

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.
