Household Devotions

Morning Prayer
Mighty God, in whom we know the power of redemption, you stand among us in the shadows of our time. As we move through every sorrow and trial of this life, uphold us with knowledge of the final morning when, in the glorious presence of your risen Son, we will share in his resurrection, redeemed and restored to the fullness of life and forever freed to be your people. Amen.

Evening Prayer
God of victory over death, your Son revealed himself again and again, and convinced his followers of his glorious resurrection. Grant that we may know his risen presence, in love obediently feed his sheep, and care for the lambs of his flock, until we join the hosts of heaven in worshiping you and praising him who is worthy of blessing and honor, glory and power, for ever and ever. Amen.

In Our Prayers
O God, your Son remained with his disciples after his resurrection, teaching them to love all people as neighbors. As his disciples in this age, we offer our prayers on behalf of the universe in which we are privileged to live and our neighbors with whom we share it.

Especially we pray for those known by the St. John's family:  Mina, Marie, Christy and baby, Margaret, Dale, Mary Pat,
Dave, Kay, Dave, Cheryl, Daniel, Diane, Therese, Jackson, Linda, Lorraine, Shirley, Linda, Dianne, Joe, Kassidy, Charles, Alvoy, Amanda, John, Chris, Dolores, Fred, Judy, Todd, Julie, Andrea, 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 William Carroll , the family and friends of Liz Dalton.
   
We pray for all who rejoice for families gathering, for baptisms, and for all good things.

   Alleluia! Christ is risen!
   
We pray for our bishops Elizabeth and Don.

Open our hearts to your power moving around us and between us and within us, until your glory is revealed in our love of both friend and enemy, in communities transformed by justice and compassion, and in the healing of all that is broken. Amen.
