Monday, September 22nd, 2003 - Prayer of the Week on Mark 8:34-9:1.

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy!

O Lord You revealed to us the meaning of life by Your death and resurrection. You call us to accept our trials, suffering, and tribulations as crosses which lead to our salvation. As You prayed for the Apostle Peter so be with us when we are sifted like wheat. Do not let Satan give us more than we can bare. May we, as a church community, be like Simon the Cyrenian who carried Your Cross by helping the suffering bare their crosses so they will be lighter. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Monday, September 8th, 2003 - Prayer of the Week for Sept 11th memorial.

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy!

Heavenly Father, we stand before the face of the evil one. You promised to deliver us from him. Vengeance is Yours O Lord. Today we cry out with fear and trembling, stretch out Your right hand and defend us against our enemies through Jesus Christ our Lord. We pray earnestly for our leaders -- our President, Congress, Military and Caregivers. Guide them as they confront this evil with courage. Turn our bitterness, sorrow and despair unto submission to Your will so that we can face this trial bravely. As we pass through the valley of death lead us into Your green pastures.

We pray for all those who have departed this life on that tragic day. Forgive them any sin they have committed and receive them as innocent children. Be with their families in this time of grief. Help us as a nation to bear their burden.

May we live today and tomorrow committed to You even in this grave moment of our History. May Your kingdom come so that all sorrow and sighing may flee away and we will live eternally at peace. We pray in the Name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

You are invited to attend the Memorial Liturgy on Sept11th at 7AM and the memorial program at 7 PM. Bishop Job will be attending.

Monday, September 1st 2003 - Prayer of the Week on Matthew 18:23-35.

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy!

O Lord You forgave our sins and adopted us as sons and daughters. We want to continue to be called Your sons and daughters. Do not drive us away from Your house because of our lack of forgiveness. We beg You not to give us what we have given to our neighbors. We pray we will not judge or condemn but will forgive with our hearts. As You forgave us so help us to forgive others so we will not be consumed with revenge thereby bringing upon us Your wrath because of our lack of forgiveness. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit Amen.
