From the Prayer Corner -- Christmas 2019 Prayer
Loving God, in this Christmas Season, we praise You for the newborn child, Your Son, and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Please open our eyes to see the mystery of faith and help us claim the promise and gift of
Emmanuel, “God with us”, our most treasured gift the whole year through.
We remember that Jesus was born in a manger, and then walked through His life as a humble suffering Savior.
Lord, like He did, help us to share the love of God with everyone we encounter, to feed the
hungry, clothe the naked, support the poor, and stand against injustice and oppression.
May there be bread for those who are starving, love for the unloveable, healing for the sick,
protection for our children, and wisdom for our youth.
We pray for the ending of war and for peace upon the earth. We pray for the forgiveness of sins and for abundant life in Christ.
We thank You for our family and friends, and we pray for their salvation.
We thank You for the many blessings we have received, and we pray Your blessings on all
We rejoice today with the best gifts of Hope, Peace, Joy and the Love of God in Jesus Christ. Amen.
Rev. Lia Icaza Willetts, United Methodist Pastor
Wednesday Morning Prayer – 8:00am-8:30am
Prayer is a powerful way for us to receive the grace of God in our life. As we pray God moves. God moves in response to our requests. God moves closer to us in relationship. God moves on our hearts so that we more deeply experience his love. These are powerful things we don’t want to miss as a church community. Come join your pastors every Wednesday in the sanctuary, as we set aside time to pray to our God. Make the effort to come before work! Come as a way to jumpstart your day!
