For the repose of the soul of Holly, a dear friend of Penny and Hank: “May the angels lead her into Paradise. May the martyrs come to welcome her on her way and lead her to the Holy City, Jerusalem. May the choirs of angels welcome her and with Lazarus, who was once poor, may she have everlasting life. Amen.”
For our Vernon, who currently is at Lexington Rehabilitation Center in Streamwood receiving treatment and dialysis: pray for his full and complete recovery and let us pray for Erlene that she may be blessed comfort and strength.
For Hal and Steve who will be attending the Verger’s Convention and representing St. Nicholas Church: pray for their safe travels, stirring workshops and joyful worship.
For our Lenny who took a serious fall and injured his neck and upper back: pray for a successful surgery, quick recovery and full return to an active, healthy life.
For the Syrian refugee crisis which continues to unfold in Europe: pray that government leaders around the world open their boarders and the doors of their homes to welcome these victims of violence and oppression no longer as strangers but as friends.
For all our pets and all animals: that they are treated with care, love and gentleness.
For all our St. Nicholas community members who are under the weather and in need of healing and prayers: may they find peace and be blessed with sound and better health: Joan, Courtney, Art, Karen, Sharon, Jill, Connie, Ron, Marcia, Joanne, Fran, Kesha, Mary, Eunice, Tony, K.C., Dick, Dale, Phil, Tim, Jackie, Chris, Cathy, Carrie, Tim, Pat, Lenny, Perry, Kathy J. and any one else in need of our continued prayers and well wishes.
