I ask your prayers for God’s people throughout the world; for our Bishops Michael, Jennifer, and Mauricio; for this gathering; and for all ministers and people. In our diocesan cycle of prayer, we remember St. Paul’s, Jeffersonville--Mr. Benjamin Sapp, Senior Warden.
Pray for the Church.
I ask your prayers for peace; for goodwill among nations; and for the well-being of all people. Pray for justice and peace.
I ask your prayers for the poor, the sick, the hungry, the oppressed, and those in prison; and we especially pray for Lois, Virginia, Juanita, Gwen, Mary Sue, Delani, David & Michele, Robert, and Charles.
Pray for those in any need or trouble.
I ask your prayers for all who seek God, or a deeper knowledge of Him. Pray that they may find and be found by Him.
I ask your prayers for the departed. Pray for those who have died. Silence
Praise God for those in every generation in whom Christ has been honored. Pray that we may have grace to glorify Christ in our own day.
Almighty and eternal God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth: Mercifully accept the prayers of your people, and strengthen us to do your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

WE NOW LIST the hymns for the following Sunday on the front page of the Gabriel, so that you might familiarize yourself with them ahead of time. If you don’t have an instrument to play them at home, try searching YouTube for a video of the ones you don’t know. Let’s fortify our Sunday morning music experience!
LICENSED LAY EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS, Dennis and Charlene McAndrews, remain ready and eager to bring communion to any who are unable to be present at Sunday services.
