Prayers of the Parish

In our worship, we pray each other's prayers together, and in our daily lives may we also pray the prayers of the parish community.

We pray for members and friends of our church community, including Jennifer Anderson, Margaret Anderson, Evelyn Crawford, Rod Devlin, Boo Dulaney, Betty Dickerson Holt, Mark Klendworth, Heather Mallory, Gary Miller, Ruth Shaver, Nancy Sprouse, Gary Stevens, and Edwina Tanzi.

We pray for those families who are separated from each other, for those who are in pain, and for those in despair.
