We entrust into your unfailing care, Merciful God...

Those for whom our prayers have been requested: Bobbie Parsons, Jeannie Scott, Jim, Wanda, Pat Culver, Jan Metcalf, Jason, Joyce Crofton, John, Hank Couch, Ned Atwater, Bertha Simpkins, Donna Bayley, Barbara, Paula Zanhizer, Amelia Smith, Louis, Scott Stiefvater, Ella Richard-Dyson, Dean Arvan, and Bill Dewart.     

Our nation and the world: the President, Congress, and Supreme Court; our Governor, Mayor, and the leaders of the communities from which we come; members of our military at home and abroad; for all those elected or appointed to positions of public trust, and, for peace throughout our world, especially, in Israel and Palestine.

The Church throughout the world, especially for Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury; for Michael Curry, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church; Stephen Lane, Bishop Provisional of Rochester; for the clergy and staff of St. Paul's and for our partners in ministry.

With thanksgiving: our health care professionals, first responders, essential workers, and farmworkers.

Those who have died, especially those whom we love but see no longer.

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.


O God, our heavenly Father, make the door of St. Paul's Church wide enough to receive all who need love and fellowship and loving care, and narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and uncharitableness. Make its threshold smooth enough to be no stumbling block to children, but strong enough to turn back the tempter's power. 

O heavenly Father, make the door of St. Paul's a gateway to your eternal kingdom; bless every member and worker; may all that we do and say be done and said to your honor and glory and the spreading of your kingdom. May we continue to be forever yours and daily increase through the Holy Spirit in love and service to others; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
