I’d like to take the time this morning to pray for my girlfriend’s grandma please. She had surgery for 4 ulcers. Doctors were trying to delay it because she has heart stents. Unfortunately she was put into an induced coma because she was not healing properly. The doctor is now talking to her husband about life support. My girlfriend has already lost 2 people this year. It’s been a hard time for everyone. So I’d like to have prayers for healing and that she comes out healthy. Lord I pray for healing for those around us who are suffering and for Emily’s grandma who has been fighting with her life to get better. Everything was so unexpected with the surgery and now she has fallen into unfortunate circumstances. Lord I pray that you take away any pain that she may be in and that you are with all the family members through this hard time right now. Amen

Spiritual Practices

Our lives run at a relentless 24/7 pace of so much noise, motion, and stress, that it leaves little room to attend to the health of our souls. Yet that is where our greatest source of energy, life, and spiritual vitality come from! Engaging in regular time with God recalibrates us to the life of the Spirit within, transforming us from the inside out. Take some time to explore and experiment with a variety of spiritual practices today – the freshness of new life awaits!

Daily Spiritual Exercise

Each week we create daily spiritual practices to help you connect with God beyond the one-hour-a-week of our Weekend Services. These are designed to disrupt your daily routine and stimulate a posture of openness to God’s presence and activity in your life.

More than just something to add to your already crowded “to do” list, daily practices awaken us to the spiritual reality all around us, helping us live connected 24/7 to the power and presence of Jesus.

Psalms Reading Plan

Journey with us as we read the Psalms throughout this series. Each day we are encouraging folks to read 3 Psalms and track their progress using this reading plan. 

Welcome back! Try some recent practices.

Bible Study
Understanding An Ancient Text

Reflection
Prayer of St. Patrick's

St. Patrick was a follower of Jesus hundreds of years ago and was known for many things, one of which being this prayer. These words, written so long ago, still ring true today. When you struggle to find the words, allow this prayer to become a reflection and connect with the presence of Christ all around you.
