Daily Prayers of the Church Street family

March 24, 2020

Pastor Jan


O One of Infinite Mercy, the world of order and meaning that we cherish seems to be splintering apart. Shrill voices sound the alarm from daylight to dusk. Yet within this precarious era, we in your church are to stand firm; as we know it is your voice alone that claims us. So let us not trust solely in the pundits. Let us also fall at the feet of Jesus, for acknowledging our fear is the first movement of faith. And it is faith in our God that will see us through.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

We lay before you these particular situations that are on the hearts of the people of Church Street:

  • Gratitude for the beautiful life lived by a member who is buried today
  • A daughter & son-in-law working in the forefront of medical arenas
  • Reconciliation within a broken family
  • For Congress to pass legislation to provide financial help to small businesses & workers in our country
  • A dear elderly father in assisted living, for safety from illness
  • Patience for an ill brother waiting 6 more days for virus test results
  • Protection for healthcare workers who risk their lives to help others
  • Gratitude for technology that undergirds our sense of community

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

Hear us, Good Lord, as we recall the blessings we have recently received . . .

And hear our private confessions to you, in the silence of our hearts. . .

And as you sweep away the deeds of darkness within us, plant in their place seeds of restoration, that our works might take root and flourish. We shall then loudly proclaim your name, not with our words, but with the living of our lives.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

Gather up these prayers we bring this day, for we offer them in the name of the One who makes all things new, the Author of our Faith 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.
