Do you know of anyone who needs prayer for healing? Call the church office at 904-287-4865.
We pray, collectively, as follows~
For healing, recovery and peace for our brothers and sisters facing illness. . .
For comfort of those who have lost loved ones . . .
For strength and healing for marriages and families, especially within our church family . . .
For friends and family in the armed services and diplomatic corps . . .
For those who are seeking employment.
For deliverance of those trapped in addictions and hope for those struggling with depression.
For law enforcement and emergency service personnel.
For God’s presence with those we love in far away places.
For God to provide for our church financially and thanksgiving for how God has done so.
For Genevans to use words in a way that builds up the church and does not tear it down.
For our denomination, the Presbyterian Church (USA), to rediscover the authority of scripture.
For our nations, its leaders, especially our president, congressional leaders, Supreme Court and Justices and for those who govern our state and our community.
For the peace of Jerusalem and for God’s peace to break out around the world.
For the church around the world, especially where it is persecuted, and for our church that together we would faithfully follow Jesus.
And, humbly, we pray for ourselves, pausing to reflect how many ways we can be grateful for your gifts: some simple, some complicated, all magical. We pray that we hear your voice and feel your intention in our daily lives, as we strive to live in service to you and to our fellow man. May we have the courage to wholly love one another. May we always trust in a Greater Good, and may the light of your tender care for each and every one of us illuminate every shadow, on this magnificent path that is human life.
For your Holy Spirit is on the wind, your Son always walking alongside us and you, our Father, a warm, softly forgiving hug that lasts forever. Amen.
