At St. John's


Sunday, Jan. 24
Give us grace, O Lord, to answer readily the call of our Savior Jesus Christ and proclaim to all people the Good News of his salvation, that we and the whole world may perceive the glory of his marvelous works; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

For Persecuted Churches

We pray for persecuted churches around the world. For the month of January we pray for the nation of Somalia. Heavenly Father, Christians and Christian churches in Somalia are suffering due to violence, extreme Islamic persecution, and civil war. We lift them up in your Holy Name, asking for your mercy to surround them. We pray for the Christian churches in Somalia to persevere through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer.
