A Prayer for Personal Need

Lord, We meet you in the stillness to pray for our own personal needs. We surrender our façade – the image of self-sufficiency we have constructed for ourselves.  We let go of who we feel we should be, and dwell in your presence in the freedom of who we really are. You see us, Lord. And you know us intimately. We rush around as though we have it all together. But you see the innermost

A Prayer for Global Missions

Father of all,   You love me wide as the world, and You still have space to love every other an equal span. So Your love wraps round this earth seven billion times over.   I want my love to go the distance too. But I confess I’m caught in my own tiny world; caring most about the things I can see, taste, and touch. Caring most about myself. The seven billion others an afterthought,

A Prayer for Emerging Generations

Our Gracious Father, You are our sovereign God—the Creator of all things good.  You knit us in our mother’s womb and have made us in your image—to be glory carriers; to be salt and light into the world. Thank you for our Church.  Thank you for your faithfulness over generations.  Thank you for your provision and blessings in our midst.  We praise you for the growing diversity—in all ways imaginable—in the Church.  We thank you

Prayer for The Forgotten

“In panic I cried out,  "I am cut off from the LORD!"  But you heard my cry for mercy  and answered my call for help.” Psalm 31:22 God, we know you never forsake us. You care deeply about the details of our lives and promise never to leave. We know you call us to care for those around us, yet in the busyness of our daily lives, we sometimes overlook those who need it most.

A Prayer for Palermo

Our gracious heavenly Father, As we enter into this new year and this week of prayer at FV,  we recognize that we are a privileged people to be able to live and worship in this community of Palermo. You have drawn us from all around the globe, from across this great country of Canada, and from all over this province to train us to see Palermo as our mission field. Lord, we pray that we

A Prayer for Vision & Leadership

God we come before you with grateful hearts for the tremendous talent within our church. We are a body filled with capable leaders already doing great things. It is so easy to depend on our gifts to bring our church success and we sometimes lose sight of why we were so richly blessed in the first place. Forgive us when we fail to heed Your calling in our lives or as a community. Despite our

Pastoral Prayer – October 19th, 2014

God of all the Earth, You are our Creator. You are the mastermind behind the sun and the Earth and the way we are tilted just a bit to produce this beautiful cycle of warmth and cool, of green and red and orange. We drive up Dundas Street and see the fall colours splashed across the Giant’s Rib, our Niagara Escarpment, like a large scale Impressionist painting. And it stuns us.  Where does this palette

Pastoral Prayer – October 5th, 2014

Father-God, We tear down these idols in our lives, only to find that they have returned again and again. We fight against what we want to do and find that we end up doing the very things we don’t want to do. We look at the way we sacrifice for financial gain and self promotion. We may speak the words of generosity and simplicity but sometimes we just want more and better. We’re tired. We
