A Prayer from the Pastor

Father, in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior, I come before you with thanksgiving and praise. You are the great one, the awesome one, the eternal God who is the creator of heaven and earth. Thank you for all that was done for us. Your name is worthy to be praised. You gave the world the greatest blessing of all when you sent your son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and pay the price for every sin that we have committed. This is an indication of how much you love your creation. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (St. John 3:16) Your unfailing and continual love is lavished upon us with such grace and mercy.Therefore, I give you the praise, honor and glory with excitement!

Father, I pray that you bless the readers of this prayer according to their personal needs. Open their eyes to see and appreciate your love and power, as well as their ears to hear your word and the wisdom to embrace it. Touch their precious hearts in such a special way that they will receive your son, Jesus Christ, as their Lord and Savior. Heal their bodies of sickness and disease. Touch their scarred emotions and regulate their minds. Help them to bask in the peace which you gave us, regardless of their circumstances. Comfort them in a time of despair. Show yourself great and bless them beyond measure. I know that you are a prayer answering God and every heartfelt prayer is an answered prayer. Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I thank you right now Father, for I know that on behalf of the readers of this prayer, my petition has been granted to me. Amen!
