A List of Prayers

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.
