Daily Prayers of the Church Street family

May 28, 2020

Pastor Jan


O Weaver of Hope, you have fashioned a multi-colored treasure for us throughout the years. The sky-blue love of friends and family, the golden faithfulness of those who root for us, who wait to hear from us, the emerald accolades that come our way, the coral assurance that we are loved as we are, and the plum promise of a new beginning each and every day. All these are as ribbons woven together into a vivid blanket of blessing. Cover us with that blanket, Lord, especially when the chill of depression fills the night air. And we will remember all that we have received from you and will know that it is more than sufficient.

In your grace, O Lord, hear our prayer.    

O Love Without Equal, at times during this gray interlude of isolation, our thoughts turn to those who are not as fortunate as ourselves. And it is well that our souls recognize the somber side of life in this realm. We hear of those who are hurting in their private lives. Let us not overlook those whose loved ones have died, those saddened by family pressures, those whose diseases cannot be cured, those whose burdens cannot be borne alone. We lift up to you light all those who may be despairing this day, especially these whose names we whisper in the silence . . . May each know your tender mercy and feel their hearts strangely warmed.

In your grace, O Lord, hear our prayer. 

O Hidden Source of Calm, your Son once asked the blind man a simple question: “What do you want me to do for you?” We believe the same question is asked of us in our age; therefore, we boldly make our requests known to you, especially these which are voiced by our members of our Church Street family:

  • Grateful for prayers – a house closing went smoothly
  • Gratitude: public servants who help the unemployed navigate the system
  • After 3 bleak months, a businesswoman is thankful her work is increasing
  • Thankful for prayers: a sister with cancer has received some promising news
  • Family grateful for the days spent with a father and grandfather before his died
  • Praises: a grandson’s ACL and meniscus surgery went well, prayers for recovery
  • Courage and strength for a member with diabetes now in a therapy unit
  • Peace and comfort for a loving son and his family burying his father today
  • Healing prayers: a father injured in a fall and a young man with a brain bleed
  • Five members who valiantly continue their cancer treatments
  • Beloved relative who remains in ICU, isolated from her family
  • Continued prayers for a sister recovering from a stroke
  • Family & friends mourning the loss of a wonderful mother

As you are ever ready to hear us, attend to the needs of your people, O God, and we will ever tell of your constancy.

In your grace, O Lord, hear our prayer.

You have not left us comfortless, for we have your Holy Spirit and your abiding care; so we commit ourselves anew to you, relying upon Christ as our own Example and our Redeemer:

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.
