The Prayer of Faith
Is anyone among you suffering? He
Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise.
Is any one of you sick? He
should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.
And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well: the Lord will raise him up.
If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.
Therefore, confess your sins to each another and pray for each other so hat you may be healed. The
prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. James 5:13-16
Prayer of Confession
Merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against You in thought, word, and
deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart and mind and strength.
We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. In Your mercy forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct
what we shall be, so that we may delight in Your will and walk in Your ways, to the glory of Your holy name. Through Christ,
our Lord. Amen

Prayer For Our Service Men and Women
Heavenly Father,As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, we think of how they have
followed in the footsteps of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Please hold our service men and women in your strong arms.
Cover them with your sheltering grace and presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.
We also remember the families of our troops,
and ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes, and your peace, provision and strength to fill their lives.
May the members of our armed forces be filled with courage
to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and
sisters feel our love and support. Amen
