Congregational Morning Prayer

Call to Prayer

Scripture says, “Behold how good it is when sisters and brothers dwell in unity. We gather to pray this morning knowing we’re part of a loving church family, Central Congregational Church. We also remember we’re part of the world-wide Christian family and joined with people of all races, creeds, nationalities. We turn to God in prayer because God’s world needs God’s help.


A Time of Personal Prayer – the ACTS framework for prayer

Adore – express your love for God. Perhaps sing the Doxology – “Praise God from whom all . . .

Confess – reflect on the challenges during this outbreak and the ways in which God can help you.

Thank – count your blessings before God. “God, I thank you for . . .

Submit requests – for yourself, your loved ones, your church family, our nation & the world


Congregational Prayer

Gracious and Loving God, as we practice social distancing, help us remember that, “We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord.”  Help us to find ways to stay connected with each other and with you during these difficult days. Extend your mercy upon all who suffer. Give to those who lead us wisdom beyond their years and experience. Give courage, protection and success to health care workers. In our own church family, we pray especially for Cindy, Kelly, Liz, Kayla, and Lisa. Give us all grace to help each other and the faith we need to live with hope, joy and love. In the name of him who taught us to pray . . . Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us, not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.



May the strength of God sustain us; may the power of God preserve us; may the hands of God protect us; may the ways of God direct us; and may the love of God go with us this day and forever. Amen.
