7 PM Daily Prayer

April 9, 2020  

Today's Prayer

The media presents to us international, national and local news.  Let's pray for them today. 

 

We thank You, Father, for writers, producers, broadcasters and journalists working in the media – for their abilities and skills and for all who seek after the truth.  We pray a blessing on the media and we ask that they may have wisdom, integrity, insight and sound judgement in their work.  Help them to reach the highest professional standards and resist the temptation to jump to easy conclusions and resist giving way to prejudice. Give them the desire and the words to speak hope and not despair during this pandemic.  Help us who read, watch and listen to be wise and discerning.  We offer this prayer to You in the Name of Jesus, who brought the Good News and declared Himself as the Truth and gave Himself for a world in need.  Thy will be done.  AMEN

What is 7 PM Daily Prayer

One of the things that people of God do best is to PRAY.  And we are assured by the Word of God that our prayers reach a Loving Father who hears and answers.  During this troubling time, we are encouraging every church member to take a moment each day at 7 PM to pray.  It is a way for us to be united, even when we cannot physically be together.

There are many, many areas that need prayer:  our church family, first responders, those with the virus, those exposed to the virus and on it goes.  Each day, we will share with you a particular need that has arisen and we will include a short prayer for that need. 

Also, there are specific needs that concern you.  You may email those requests for prayer to unionpc5615@gmail.com or call the church office and leave a message. These requests will be made public on our website below.
