Prayer for the world

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Heavenly Father creator of all things,

God, You alone are worthy of honor, glory, and praise. With You, we can overcome every storm—including COVID-19.

Right now, we are asking You to:

• Heal those who are sick and protect those who are not.

• Give our leaders extra wisdom as they navigate this pandemic and economic uncertainty.

• Strengthen Your global Church. Reveal to us how we can partner together to reach the needs of those around us.

• Calm our fears. Fill us with Your hope, joy, and peace as we continue to trust in You.

• Use this pandemic to pave the way for spiritual renewal. We want Your glory, power, and healing to be on display.

Come Lord Jesus, come.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Update from Pastor Lamb

Good evening, everyone! In this time of disruption I will be posting on Facebook and our website announcements, updates, reflections on scripture, and thoughts about living right now. Maybe I’ll add to that, but this is new territory for me, so I’m not sure.

The first post will be tomorrow morning(Sunday March 15). As our church usually gathers for worship at 10 AM, I’ll have something posted by then. My prayer is that we can continue to be present for each other and our neighbors as we navigate through this rough patch. In other words, I pray that these posts will support us in being the Church wherever we are.
