Prayer Gathering

Wednesday, June 2 at 6:30 p.m.

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, if you are able, please pause a few moments in prayer, we will be together in our petition before God. Or you may gather a few friends together then or at another time, and join us in the following prayer cycle:

For the world…
Psalm 24:1 The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it

For our nation…
Psalm 67:4 
May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity
and guide the nations of the earth.

For state and community leaders, and those
overseeing our criminal justice system…
Psalm 9:8 He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity. 

For chaplains, pastors, missionaries, volunteers and for this ministry in particular…
Galatians 6:9
 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

For immigrants…
Deuteronomy 10:19 
And you are to love those who are aliens, for you yourselves were aliens in Egypt.

For everyone who is incarcerated and their families…
Hebrews 13:3 
Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison,
and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

For victims of violence…
Luke 23:42 “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

Pray for your own loved ones, and your personal petitions:
Mark 11:24 
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have
received it, and it will be yours.

God is not bound by space and time, so physically apart but together in our prayers, we join to worship and bow down to the one who created heaven and earth, who loves us beyond our understanding, and who doesn’t just wait for us to come home, but rather runs to meet us where we are! Open your arms wide to receive such amazing love!

May the peace and grace of Jesus be with you, today and always!

For these, your beloved children, and all of us, we pray...

From May 17, "New Day in Christ" daily devotional guide, by Maureen Knight

From Elizabeth in LTCW Tallulah, LA

"I will lift my eyes to the hills. From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth" Psalms 121:1-2

Look Up

Look up to the heaven above
Look up with admiration and love.

Look up to a greater day
Look up because that was yesterday.

Look up trouble comes and goes.
Look up to the one who knows.

Look up because you are not alone--
Look up to Jesus from the cross to the throne
by Elizabeth A Shaw

Thank you, King Jesus, for being my role model and giving me something to look up to. Amen.
