Let us pray after the Lord’s Model

“‘Our Father in heaven,  hallowed be your name,  your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.  Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’”

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

 Therefore [we will] confess [our] sins to each other and pray for each other so that [we] may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

[Because You] deliver me from [my sin], O God, O God of my salvation, … my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.

  1. Hello,
    I am the new Director of Grand Valley Oncology and from time to time we have a patient that is homeless while going through treatment or is having other financial issues. I wondered if your organization already offers any services that we might refer the patient to or if you would like to meet and discuss how we can help people in these types of circumstances.
    Thank you,

    1. Gail, thank you for contacting us. At this time we do not have any such service. We are a small church, and do not have the financial resources to help on this level. We do have a few people who may be free and willing to help with emotional and spiritual comfort. But again, this is not formal; merely when the need arises, we do what we can to meet it.
      Perhaps emailing me at will help clarify another lingering or unasked questions.
