Daily Prayers of the Church Street family

May 27, 2020

Pastor Jan


Bidden or unbidden, the Lord is with us. Soundless Seeker, are you sitting on the nearby bench or rustling among the leaves overhead? Are you kneeling at the bedside when I pray, or humming with me in the flower bed? You never miss an opportunity to woo us – for where we are, there you also want to be. In this interim, as we discover more about ourselves and our own spirit longings, may we discover you as well. For in truth, they are one in the same.

O Love Never Ending, hear our prayer.    

Consoling Counselor, be with those who weep this day: those in the grip of illness, in the web of depression, those in the valley of confusion, neglect, loneliness, hunger, or death. You hear every cry, O Lord, so answer the pleas of your children. And it is true you also gave us ears to detect the sobbing of suffering souls among us. Fine-tune our hearing, we pray, that we might become the Compassionate Christ knocking on the door of the despondent ones and binding their open wounds. Yes, it requires courage to cross those thresholds, but you will supply it.

O Love Never Ending, hear our prayer.

How fortunate we are that you loved us and sought us even before we first drew breath! Fill our lungs with your spirit wind, we pray, that we might sing of your goodness and glory. And in your mercy, breathe on us this day and revive us, as we offer the praises and the concerns of your people at Church Street:

  • Newlyweds celebrate purchasing their first home in Alabama
  • Gratitude for the life of a wonderful Christian mother who died on Saturday
  • Gratitude and guidance for young couple settling in Knox after a long absence
  • One is thankful for a short vacation to restore her family’s spirits
  • Praises: following surgery, a friend will require neither chemo nor radiation
  • Prayers for a mother having medical tests this afternoon – that all goes well
  • Healing prayers for a father injured in a fall over the weekend
  • Relief of pain for a member recovering from foot surgery
  • Son (29) suffering brain bleed and serious complications after a fall; that he might receive the best of treatment; peace for his family
  • Blessings for a mother suffering a malignancy, strength for her family
  • Strength for a caregiver, that she does not overextend herself
  • Full recovery for a sister who suffered a stroke over the weekend
  • Solace for those who are isolated from loved ones and families who grieve

O Love Never Ending, hear our prayer.

You are age to age the same, O Eternal One, so into your hands, we commend our past, our present, and our future, knowing we will still dwell with you when all time is blended together in love:

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.
