Proclaiming a changeless Christ in a changing world

We have resumed public worship on Sunday mornings at 9:15 with appropriate safeguards in place.  We are also recording the service so that you may participate online; you can view it on our Worship page.

Pastoral care is still available - please contact Pastor Brian

My only prayer

 

Do you ever struggle with prayer? 

I imagine that this is a situation most people have from time to time. 

Am I right?  Is this true for you?

It’s true for pastors.  At least, for this one, it is.

There are times when words fail us.  We just don't know what to pray for ourselves, or for a loved one or friend.  Then there are times when we are physically exhausted, emotionally drained, or spiritually spent.  I’ve been there myself, with just enough energy left at the end of the day to utter a one word prayer.

Sometimes, the only prayer I can come up with is:  HELP!   

The church has long used the following simple prayer:  Help, save, comfort and defend us, gracious Lord.  

Amen.
