Household Devotions

Morning Prayer
God of justice, your word is light and truth. Let your face shine on us to restore us, that we may walk in your way, seeking justice and doing good. Amen.

Evening Prayer
God of judgment and grace, you ask not for sacrifices but lives of trusting faith that acknowledge your power and mercy. Give us faith as deep and strong as Abraham's and Sarah's, that we may follow you through all our days as did Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

In Our Prayers
Creator God, you call us to love and serve you with body, mind, and spirit through loving your creation and our sisters and brothers. Open our hearts in compassion and receive these petitions on behalf of the needs of the church and the world.

Especially we pray for those known by the St. John's family:  Mina, Marie, Margaret, Diana, Eileen, Mary, Rosie, Denise,
Jen, Kate, Clarence, Tanni, Marge, Evy, Sharon, Dave, Cheryl, Diane, Jackson, Linda, Lorraine, Dianne, Kassidy, Alvoy, Dolores, Fred, Julie, Camille, Norbert, Duane, Gale, Jim, Dylan, the Lind family
and all who are in need.

We pray for all who grieve for any reason.  Especially we pray for The family of Terese DeMattei Fletcher (Camile Miller’s friend), the family of Judy Huebener, and all Caregivers.
   
We pray for all who rejoice, for families gathering, for baptisms, and for all good things.
   
We pray for our bishops Elizabeth and Don.

Holy One, hear our prayers and make us faithful stewards of the fragile bounty of this earth so that we may be entrusted with the riches of heaven. Amen.
