Monday Mornings: Prayer Wall, Candles, and Holy Week

25 Mar

Prayer wall and candlesThinking of each of you knee deep in ministry this week. All the extra prep and expectations and work and energy pointing toward Sunday- Resurrection Day.

And knowing that many of you if not all are struggling somewhere. . . with something. . . with someone.

For some it might be

Lord, we pray for healing.

Lord, we surrender.

Lord, we pray for deliverance.

Lord, we pray for those disconnected from you.

Lord, we say a prayer of Thanksgiving.

Lord, we pray in your name.

This morning I pray for you-those of you who visit this blog- who minister each week-who pour out their lives for kids. And this week I will add you to our prayer wall at church. Just a simple long white piece of paper pinned to a wall surrounded by tables full of candles- each one symbolizing a prayer and the hope that the Light of the World brings to that prayer. Each night these candles lit at 8 pm. A reminder. A thing of beauty- the faith and hope represented here. Knowing that you do not walk this alone.

What can I pray for you?

Leave a comment with your struggle, your hope, your need. We’ll write it on the wall for you.

    A prayer for calm and the ability to journey fully through Holy Week into the joy of Easter despite the chaos of the week.
