“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”  Psalm 37:4

  • Thank you, Lord, for the ways You allow us to be Your hands and feet in a hurting world.
  • Thank you, Lord, for the angels You put in our path.
  • Thank you, Lord, for the quiet in the early morning where we may hear You more clearly.
  • Lord, we do not understand the rage and devastation that occurs in the world, both manmade and from nature, but help us to find comfort in Your presence and trust in Your plan.
  • Merciful God, look upon us as we enter these Forty Days bearing the mark of the cross, and bless the journey through the desert of Lent to the fountain of rebirth. As we remember our mortality and seek penitence today, we know you to be a God who is rich in forgiveness and abounding in steadfast love, love that culminates in eternal life with you. Guide our steps this Lent, so that we might find greater fulfillment in your promises and better serve others with a heart that’s reflective of you.
  • Help us to tune out the world when it says to live as we please because we only live once. Rather help us follow Your Word that we live to please Him. Acts 20:24
  • May we bring to mind every day Isaiah’s sermon to calm down and be quiet and not be afraid or cowardly. If we chat first with Jesus, we won’t be swayed by braggers in the world. Isaiah 7:4
  • Help us to see that traditions can have a place in our church but never replace the wisdom of Scripture.
  • Watch over our missionaries and allow the Holy Spirit to impart wisdom, power and perseverance for their work
  • Help us to be bold in all that CCC does in Jesus’ name. May our efforts to make Christ known be pleasing to the Father.
  • We pray for loved ones in our families living through difficult times – health concerns, loss of loved ones, financial worries, job struggles, relationship problems, loneliness, and other stressors – as we place all things in the hands of our all-knowing and powerful Father, may peace and calm help them overcome.
