I need your prayers…
As senior pastor, I believe in prayer and spend quite a bit of time in prayer, for our church, for you and all the members and friends of Lakeview and all they are facing and for God’s world around us. Recently we began a prayer campaign across our church, inviting everyone to join us in praying for Lakeview UMC and our ministries we offer. I think prayer is one of the ways we best connect with God. Some of us may feel at ease with prayer. Some of us may feel we mostly pray when we’re thankful or when we need lots of help. God welcomes all prayers. I invite you to pray our Prayer for Our Church below, and as you pray, let it be a time for you to listen to what God is saying to your heart and spirit. I believe God has great plans for this church and the ways we can care for our spiritual community here and bring God’s love to the world around us. Will you join me in this time of prayer and let me know what you are hearing from God?
We pray for our church in this important time, to do your will and to be a faithful witness in our troubled world. We pray for each other and all that we need from you. We pray that you would strengthen our ministries and the ways we may be for our community a living reminder of Jesus Christ. Lord, stir in us a desire to serve you, to care for others, to relieve suffering, to be your light in any place of darkness. We pray for our financial needs and our ministries that we would be able to do all that you ask of us. Mold us, fill us and use us, O God. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
