Daily Prayers of the Church Street family

March 28, 2020

Pastor Jan


O Mighty Fortress, you are the God whose mercy never fails. We sail toward an unknown shore and your word is our only chart. The winds of transition have unsteadied our course, and we confess that we are anxious. And yet, you are already aware of the storms that rage in our personal lives. You well know the tempest voices that tell us our situations are hopeless. But when we quiet our souls, we always hear your living words speaking in our hearts:

Come to me, you say, and I will give you the composure for which you search. Come to me, you say, and I will calm the waves.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

We lift up now these concerns of our church family. Keep these situations close to your heart, that each one may enter the gentle streams of your grace:

  • Gratitude for our church & the ways in which we are staying connected
  • Gratitude for a much-needed medical procedure to relieve hip pain
  • Celebrating a negative COVID-19 test
  • Thanksgiving for a son-in-law managing operations for the National Guard, who assist local governments in this time of crisis
  • Safety for a daughter, nurse practitioner, now conducting virus testing
  • Protection for a brother & his wife, medical workers in a D.C. hospital
  • A family devastated by the loss of a child, for healing mercies
  • Safety for a son & his fiancé, physicians working in Atlanta hospitals
  • A brother & fiancé awaiting results of COVID-19 testing
  • Safety for a physician nephew in ALA & for his family

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

O Mighty Fortress, receive our personal gratitudes . . .

And also our deepest regrets . . .

Wash us clean in the gentle stream of your grace.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.    

O Mighty Fortress, when our journey ends, we will find you are still with us, just as you promised. And on that other shore, we will humbly bow and offer again that prayer you taught us long ago:

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.
