Last Night at BSM

November 13, 2017

Last night, we gathered to hear a meditation from Rev. Samantha Evans on 1 Corinthians 12:14-26 about sharing our gifts, lifting up each other’s gifts, and bringing gifts on the margins to the center.

Listen to the sermon here.

The community offered these prayers to God:

I am so grateful for the people of this church, and for moments of peace in this trying week.  Thank you, ****.

Please pray for: 1. Me–as God cultivates change in my life, and 2. ****–as she begins her new life in ****.  May she walk with boldness where God leads her.

My cousin, ****, has a son who recently requires brain surgery for an arteriovenous malformation.  He is now awake, and can eat but will need extensive physical or speech therapies, as well as follow-up surgery.  His name is ****, and he is 10 years old.  His mom needs help with caring for herself, being so focused on her son’s recovery.  Thank you, ****.

Dearest Father–I too and grateful for all you have given and taken in and out of my life.  I ask you to help me find stillness and quiet.  Please heal my mom and make my family strong.  Your daughter, ****.

Almighty God, help me recharge and get through these next couple of weeks.  I love you.  Thank you for loving me first.  Amen.

Dear God–Help me be patient.  Waiting for answers is one of my thorns.  Thanks for being here in the waiting though.  I love you.  Amen.

Prayer for decision making and help figuring out my purpose in life in the upcoming season.
