Our Prayer This Week


 

 

Let Us Pray For . . . 

 

Heavenly Father, our hearts are heavy with all that goes on in the world: natural disasters, war, turmoil, hunger, homelessness, devastation, political differences, and feelings of exclusion and loneliness. We know that when we turn to you in prayer, you know us; you hear us; you listen.

Consider the joys and concerns that have sprung from our hearts and have been shared aloud. Consider too, those that remain tucked away and unspoken. Continue to pour your blessings on us as we try our best to do your work.

 

Hear our prayers:

  • We pray for discernment and guidance for all of the Alaska Methodist Conference and its Clergy and Lay Members as we move forward with changes on the status of being a Missionary Conference and how we will move forward after the decisions that were made at General Conference 2019; prayers for the Sitka UMC Congregation.  
  • For discernment and guidance to make a difference for all elected officials, with peace in their hearts.
  • For health:  for Fred Wall and his health struggles and for his family; Joseph Noguet who had open-heart surgery in Seattle; for those who battle addiction; for Pastor’s sister, Brenda, who is battling cancer; those dealing with cold, flu and allergies; Priscilla’s brother in hospital in Anchorage.
  • For those who are mourning and grieving:  for the loss of Susan’s sister, Judy; for the loss of Sandie Plotnick.
  • For the safety of Discovery Camp campers and Staff and a wonderful camping experience.
  • We ask blessings on our 4th of July BBQ and for its success.  Blessings and strength for our workers.
  • We pray for the Children and Youth missions at Jewel Lake and for the missions for Children and Youth in all of the Conference.
  • For teachers and students everywhere who need our support. 

 

We give you thanks:

  • For Pam Moore’s willingness and enthusiasm to support our church each summer as a Volunteer-in-Mission; we are happy that she is back.  We pray for blessings on her family.
  • For Pennsylvania VIM’s, Bob and Judy who have come to help with Discovery Camp and with the BBQ; as LeRoy Coon always said, “Thank God for VIM’s!”
  • For the Campers and Staff who run Camp Champ and Discovery Camp.
  • In your Son's Name, we pray; amen.

 

Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.
