"Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

"A week ago today my mother suffered a major stroke- unfortunately the damage is so severe we have to let you go and gain your angel wings This sudden loss is more difficult than I could have ever imagined, I’ll never again get to hear your voice or be comforted by your hugs

Mom you were caring, compassionate, generous and kind not to mention incredibly creative and an excellent baker! I’ll miss you beyond words."

There are times in life when everything seems overwhelming – times when you can’t find answers or you don’t know where to turn. But in every season of life the Spirit invites us into a relationship with God through prayer. This is how we align our hearts with His. It is reassuring to know He is there and is listening. Whatever you are going through – times of beauty or ones of trouble – we’d love to pray with you.

Pastoral Scene

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

Dear God, You are mighty.

You give, You take. I am 

but dust. I am broken, hurt, confused, and even angry in this time of grieving. Give me

comfort O Lord, as I stand on

Your holy word. You said

weeping may endure the night, but joy comes in the morning. Father, I long for morning. I await the morning. Stand with me through this darkness. In Jesus's name, Amen.

Today I give thanks,

for life and love and beauty.

My faith is full of gratitude,

for life and hope and wholeness.

My life overflows with

abundance and generosity.

Today I give thanks to God

Almighty, for the provision

of all things good.


Hands Together

Dear God, help those who are struggling or trying to make sense of things in their lives. Help those who have heavy hearts or illness in their lives right now. Give them the strength they need to carry on. Remind them that Your love is ever present in their lives.
