On Tuesday Sept 2nd, St James Prayer Group had its first meeting at the home of Paul & Nancy Mary Lucia. This group was birthed out of Fr. Mark's vision of St James becoming more of a family through their love of God and one another.
The group has committed itself to praying a particular prayer, at a paticular time in unison everyday. These pray-ers are committed to stop whatever they are doing at this agreed upon time of prayer so that all in the group will be praying at the same time. Having many examples in Scripture, we believe God hears and answers the prayers of his people.
We started praying together on Monday September 8th 2008. If you feel this might be something you would sincerely desire to commit to and want to know more, please contact Nancy Mary or Fr Mark for more information.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon me a sinner and have
mercy upon your servants at St. James holy Orthodox Christian Church.
Protect us from the onslaught of the evil one at all times. Heal each
each of us and your Holy Orthodox Church according to your perfect will.
Make us all whole new and well in body mind and spirit. Amen.
Lord have mercy. (40 times)
