Haut Gap Back to School Donations Update

Thank you so much, those of you who have donated to the Haut Gap Middle School teachers in lieu of filling a bag of supplies for them. Please continue to keep the staff, teachers, and administrators of Haut Gap, and all area schools in your prayers, as they work to provide the best education experiences possible. We don't know what and how much they need, thanks to the changes this year; but they will know. And be so grateful.

If you meant to donate but thought it was too late, it isn't. Whatever you donate will add up quickly. If you would like to help out, mail your check to St. Johns Parish Church, noted "For Haut Gap" on the memo line, P.O. Box 125, Johns Island, SC 29457.

Showing appreciation for and confidence in the faculty and staff and students of Haut Gap, especially at the beginning of this year of uncertainty, will reap rewards all year long. Adding our prayers for safety and success throughout the year will bring even more blessings to school and to the prayer warriors, too!
Thank you for your love and support for our school partner! If you have questions, please call, Peggy Gervais at 843-830-4504.

For Persecuted Churches - Iraq and Syria

We pray for persecuted churches around the world. For the month of September we pray, again, for the nations of Iraq and Syria.
Heavenly Father, Christians and Christian churches in the Middle East are under immense pressure due to persecution, ISIS, civil war, and Covid-19. We continue to lift them up in your Holy Name, asking for your mercy to surround them. We pray for the churches in those nations to stay alive through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.

Prayers for Healing

May we who are merely inconvenienced

Remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors

Remember those most vulnerable.

May we who have the luxury of working from home

Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close

Remember those who have no options.

May we who have to cancel our trips

Remember those who have no safe place to go.

May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market

Remember those who have no margin at all.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home

Remember those who have no home.

As fear grips our country,

let us choose love.

During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,

Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.


Increase, O God, the spirit of neighborliness among us,
that in peril we may uphold one another,
in suffering tend to one another,
and in homelessness, loneliness, or exile befriend one another.
Grant us brave and enduring hearts that we may strengthen
one another,
until the disciplines and testing of these days are ended,
and you again give peace in our time;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
