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
Divine Judge, you framed the earth with love and mercy and declared it good; yet we, desiring to justify ourselves, judge others harshly, without knowledge or understanding. Keep us faithful in prayer that we may be filled with the knowledge of your will, and not ignore or pass by another's need, but plumb the depths of love in showing mercy. 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, Sal, Vicki, Jamison, Pam, Mary, Rosie, Denise, Jen, Kate, Nancy, Clarence, Marge, Evy, Cris, Sharon, Dave, Cheryl, Diane, Therese, Jackson, Linda, Lorraine, Dianne,
Kassidy, Alvoy, Dolores, Fred, Judy, 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 Mike Glefke (Melanie Bokano’s father) and all caregivers.
We pray for all who rejoice for families gathering, for baptisms, and for all good things, the Baptism of Laura Hanlon, the Affirmation of Faith of Kathy Sampson.
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.
