Intercessory Prayer

Wednesdays at 6 p.m. in the Activity Room

Do you pray for others? Want to learn more about prayer and praying for others? Even if you have been praying all your life for others, there is always more to learn about prayer - or even better, to share with others. This class consists of a video series and discussion time. All are welcome to attend, and everyone involved in prayer ministry is urged to attend. It would be great to talk about what our prayer life looks like, where we struggle, and ways to improve. If you have any questions, please contact Deacon Rose Sapp. Choir members will be dismissed in time to attend rehearsal. Come early (5:30) for Evening Prayer.

The Collect

O God, the strength of all who put their trust in you: Mercifully accept our prayers; and because in our weakness we can do nothing good without you, give us the help of your grace, that in keeping your commandments we may please you both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
