Pray with Us
Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. [Philippians 4:6]
Please send us your prayer or prayer request and believe that God will continue to enhance and bless your life.
At times, we all could use someone walking along beside us, praying for and praying with us, supporting and encouraging us. The Diocese wishes to provide the opportunity for you to do just that! We would love for you to feel free to submit your requests knowing that all prayers and prayer requests are confidential.
It is a privilege for us to support one another during both good and difficult times, and we want to thank those of you who are faithfully praying for others!
Prayers and Thanksgiving
THE LORD’S PRAYER
OUR FATHER, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, In earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.
THE APOSTLES’ CREED
I BELIEVE in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; The Holy Catholic Church; The Communion of Saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body; cross and the life everlasting. Amen.
PRAYER FOR STRENGTH
May the strength of God pilot us.
May the power of God preserve us.
May the wisdom of God instruct us.
May the hand of God protect us.
May the way of God direct us.
May the shield of God defend us.
May the host of God guard us against the snares of evil and the temptations of the world.
May Christ be with us, Christ before us, Chris in us, Christ over us.
May your Salvation, O Lord, be always ours this day and for evermore.
PRAYER FOR PEACE
Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love, so mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of one Father; to whom be dominion and glory, now and for ever.
