Dear Father in Heaven, grant that we may come into your presence as your children.  Give us all that we need each day, so that we are no longer caught in the turmoil of life but can receive Your peace.

You care for us as Your children.  Allow us to go confidently through all the troubles of these times because our way leads to You, our Eternal Father in heaven. Keep us from going astray and from spending efforts on what is temporary and cannot last. Let Your light strengthen us in what is of heaven, in what is eternally true for our lives.  We thank You that You are at work in us before we think of asking.

 

Lord we recognize that You are present in all things We believe that You are present in all our circumstances. We know that You are with us in our darkest moments.  We call You to hear our prayers as we struggle for focus in our world that changes so dramatically.  We pray for centering vision for our leaders and for ourselves.  We pray for  peace in the troubled areas of the world.  We pray for health and healing for all in our congregation.  We pray for the family of Barbara Bush, for Judy for Hunter, for Tim, for Susan, for Michelle and others who have lost there homes in the recent fires.

 We ask that You protect us in this faith.  Bring our faith to fulfillment for the glory of your holy name.  Amen
