At St. John’s, we come together every Wednesday evening at 7 o’clock to join in prayer. We have a variety of issues we lift up to the Lord. This list changes from week to week. Everyone is welcome! Bring your own concerns and we’ll pray together. God is listening!

The Lord be with you

And also with you

Move among us, O God; give us life.

Make our hearts clean within us:

Matthew 5:21-26

[Jesus said to the disciples:] “You have heard that it was said to those of ancient times, ‘You shall not murder’; and ‘whoever murders shall be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that if you’re angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment;”

This week’s prayer concerns –

    • Lord’s Prayer
    • Prayers of thanks and praise…Our God is an awesome God!
    • Prayers for healing of the sick, and guidance for their caregivers

    • Prayers for those grieving
    • Prayers for those living with dementia or mental illness, and their caregivers
    • Prayers for families, new families, the young, and all the children at Majengo
    • Prayers for leaders, that they would lead with You foremost in their minds, with a servant’s heart
    • Prayers for travelers – both near and far

    • Prayer request cards

Let us bless the Lord

Thanks be to God

“We do not come to God as strangers pleading for special favors, but as those He calls His children”

Father, we thank You for all Your answers – the “no” answers, the “not yet” answers, and the “yes” answers, because we know that You know best!

Lord, hear too the other prayers of our hearts – the prayers not mentioned aloud – the prayers that are deep inside us. Hear our prayers for healing – for peace – for forgiveness – for quiet – for grace upon grace…

All these things we ask in the name of Jesus.  Amen.
