At St. John's


July 25
Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve: Pour down upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things for which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

For Persecuted Churches

We pray for persecuted churches around the world. For the month of June we pray for the nation of Peru. Heavenly Father, Christians and Christian churches in Peru are suffering due to Covid-19, economic collapse, political corruption, and poverty. We pray for our brothers and sisters to endure, persevere, and thrive through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.
