Prayer of the Day

O Lord Christ, good shepherd of the sheep, you seek the lost and guide us into your fold. Feed us, and we shall be satisfied; heal us, and we shall be whole. Make us one with you, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Household Devotions
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
Shepherd of all, by laying down your life for your flock you reveal your love for all. Lead us from the place of death to the place of abundant life, that guided by your care for us, we may rightly offer our lives in love for you and our neighbors. 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, Kay, Marie, Liz, Julie, Camille, Norbert, Duane, Gale, Tom, Cheryl, Dave, Joyce, 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 Jim Powell the family of Bob Miller (Camille Miller's father-in-law)
   
We pray for all who rejoice for families gathering, for baptisms, and for all good things.

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.
