Dearest Wintergarden Faith Community, 

As we continue to pray for one another, our community, our country, and our world, let us do so with love and hope. Our weekly email of prayers is a way for us to share the prayers shared in worship, through the food pantry, and our various other ministries with a larger group. Due to privacy needs we will only include the first names of people and not last names. We also know this list will not be perfect and in need of constant updating. We will review this every week and be mindful of how we are being asked to pray for one another, our community, our country, and our world.

Prayers for 2024

Sunday Devon ended with, “I pray that this year we can mark and celebrate our lives and go into 2024 with joy sewn into places that we least expect it to be. Amen.” 

So, as we do that – as we go into 2024 with joy sewn om, what should we be praying for? For ourselves, for our families, for the church, for our community, for our neighbors, for strangers, for the world? 

  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Rest
  • Balance
  • Connection

and what else?
