One of the key elements of our worship is what we call the pastoral prayer. This is the time in our gathered worship when a church leader intercedes on behalf of God’s people. The weekly pastoral prayer is based on the book of Psalms.
There is an ancient saying from church history, “As the church prays, so she believes.” Our congregation develops our view of God, our world, and ourselves, by hearing each other pray about these things. In other words, public prayer is not just reactionary, it is formative.
We share the prayer of the week for your meditation and reflection.
