Household Devotions

Morning Prayer
Perfect Light of revelation, as you shone in the life of Jesus, whose epiphany we celebrate, so shine in us and through us, that we may become beacons of truth and compassion, enlightening all creation with deeds of justice and mercy. Amen.

Evening Prayer
God, you root those who trust in you by streams of healing water. Release us from the bonds of disease, free us from the power of evil, and turn us from falsehood and illusion, that we may find the blessing of new life in you through the power of Christ. Amen.

In Our Prayers
To God who welcomes all in love, let us pray for the good of the church and the concerns of those in need.

Especially we pray for those known by the St. John's family:  Mina, Marie, Linda. Lorraine, Shirley, Linda, Dianne, Joe, Marge, Ron, Kassidy, Charles, Alvoy, Brenda, Amanda, John, Melissa, Chris, Dolores, Fred, Judy, Todd, Julie, Andrea, Camille, Norbert, Duane, Gale, Jim, Russell, 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 Jerry Jozwiak (Olivares' neighbor).
   
We pray for all who rejoice for families gathering, for baptisms, and for all good things.
   
We pray for our bishops Elizabeth and Don.

God of every land and nation, you have created all people and you dwell among us in Jesus Christ. Listen to the cries of those who pray to you, and grant that, as we proclaim the greatness of your name, all people will know the power of love at work in the world. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
