  1. The silence of Peter when accused of being a follower.
  2. The silence of Judas during the betrayal.
  3. The silence of God when the skies became dark.

Prayer

You may pray this out loud if you wish:

“Dear God, these are unsettled times and we need You to remind us of our security and wholeness in Christ. By Your Spirit won’t You please affirm within each of us that we are loved and cared for by the God of the Universe who never sleeps nor slumbers.

Today we want to pray for our children and those who care for them. We ask You to give parents and caregivers wisdom as they walk their little ones through this crisis. Calm the fears and worries of the adults so they can better lead the children. We specifically ask you to bless:

  • Parents who are home routinely and others who find themselves laid off from work.
  • Teachers who care for children through virtual means.
  • Pediatricians and their staff’s who continue to care for children’s routine needs.
  • Daycare workers who’ve been without work.
  • In-home caretakers who help those parents who work in ‘essential industry’.
  • Grandparents whose heart’s ache to see their grand and great grandchildren.
  • Pastors, Sunday school teachers, and church friends who continue to serve our families.
  • Children of every age, culture, and situation who are the delight of the Lord’s eye.
  • Others: ____________________ .

Lord more than ever we lean into Your goodness. You are a solid rock, and we plant our feet firmly upon You.

In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Pastor Alan will be LIVE on our Facebook Page at 11:00 am. We will share your prayer requests (submitted from the check-in form above) and enjoy being together via Facebook.

Closing Prayer

“Oh God, as we click away from this ‘virtual service’ help us to remain connected tightly to You most of all. Help my Bible reading and prayer times continue to mold me into the person You want me to be. Bless me, my family, my church, our nation, and strangers everywhere who are wondering ‘what’s next.’ In Jesus’ name, amen.”
