A List of Prayers for Others

Prayers for ourselves and others.

Our faith teaches us that God is always with us and hears our every need. Yet within a faith community there is comfort and peace drawn from knowing that our needs, our situations, our concerns are being lifted to God in prayer by others. 

 During your time of prayer you are invited to lift the prayers, concerns, and joys (in bold) listed below. They are in chronological order, with group listings of those with health and medical needs, those who reside in nursing care and assisted living facilities and those who serve in the armed forces listed at the end. Thank you for taking time to lift each to God in prayer. Blessings and Peace.


God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ~ 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)

Christian sympathy to the family and friends of Sybil Higginbotham who passed away this morning. Services are pending at this time.

Blakely Palmer is a 2 year old from the Conception area that is in desperate need of prayers tonight. She contracted E-Coli and has been in the hospital. Yesterday her blood pressure and heart rate dropped. They ended up sedating her and putting her on a breathing tube. She is in PICU. She has been put on a type of dialysis called CRRT that continuously filters her blood until they can remove the toxins and fluid. Please lift her, her parents Justin and Kristine Palmer and her little brother in your thoughts and prayers.
