Intercessions and Prayers

Prayer for Today
Almighty God, Your Son Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. Give us grace to love one another and walk in the way of His commandments, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. Amen.

Prayer for the Worldwide Anglican Church

Prayer for our Church Family
Lord, we are called to be thankful. Yet, there are times when we aren’t sure how. We can feel a bit guilty of having so much when others haven’t. There can be occasions when we feel You have forgotten us. Sometimes, we take what we have for granted. Help us to learn true thankfulness so that we are able to bring glory to You and to others. We ask this in the Name of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Food Box for HOPE
After many years of taking care of the food box and transporting donated food to HOPE, Doreen and Allan Schofield are “retiring”. If anyone is interested in taking on this task, please speak to the Pastor.


A passing thought…
When I think of each person I know, there is not one who has escaped difficulties in life. It can be so easy to devalue those we think of as never having suffered. But we don’t always know what another has gone or is going through. Even when we are aware, we do not know the hidden things.
