“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”                                 ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Our monthly prayer:

Heavenly Father,

We praise You for all of the blessings You’ve bestowed on us throughout this life.  Help us to continue being faithful to You and trust You for all things. Help us to live each day with joy, seeking Your Spirit’s guidance in all we do and focusing on Your will for our lives. We pray this in the Name of Your precious Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen.


Pray for those effected by disaster, Merciful Counselor, we grieve with communities suffering from disasters and struggling to recover. Speed the restoration of community life so children can feel secure again. Give families strength and perseverance while they rebuild their homes and livelihoods. We pray for disaster survivors to find refuge in You.

Pray for the refugees. Almighty and merciful God, whose Son became a refugee and had no place to call his own; look with mercy on those who today are fleeing from danger, homeless and hungry.
Bless those who work to bring them relief; inspire generosity and compassion in all our hearts;
and guide the nations of the world towards that day when all will rejoice in your Kingdom of justice and of peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Our prayer for Ukraine:

Lord God, we pray for protection for the people of Ukraine whose lives have been disrupted by this conflict and for those in Russia who are protesting this invasion. We thank You for all people with compassionate hearts who have provided food, prayers, shelters, clothes, funds, and other needed items for the refugees. We thank You, Lord, for the people around this world who have shared their resources to help these displaced people and, through their heartfelt giving, have let refugees know that You have not forgotten them. In Jesuss Name we pray. Amen. 


The Bible is filled with verses that remind us to be happy, joyful, and content. Continue to rejoice and be glad that we have been granted His gracious gift of salvation which we can share as we witness to those around us. Christ died for us—be filled with joy!

Our verse for March:

“Then those who sing as well as those who play the flutes shall say, “All my springs of joy are in You.”

                                                                                  ~Psalm 87:7
Practice joy:

Start each morning with a thanks to God for this new day of life and service.  Then, live the day filled with joy and thanks.
