The Pastor’s Pen


This past Sunday during the Baccalaureate sermon, I talked about one of the gifts we gave each of our graduates. It’s a prayer book called “A Guide to Prayer for All God’s People.”

I can’t overemphasize how wonderful this prayer resource is. It provides an order for prayer for every week of the year including an invocation, Psalm, readings for reflection, Scripture readings, benediction, and more. Many find providing order to prayer makes it all the more fruitful. If you have wanted to deepen your prayer life, this prayer book might just be what you are looking for.

“A Guide to Prayer for All God’s People” is available on-line wherever book are sold. Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Cokesbury all have it in stock. Prices range from $16.16 to $19.95. It’s published by Upper Room Books & has an ISBN number of 978-0-8358-0710-4.

What a wonderful gift this will be for our graduates! Let me know if you decide to pick-up a copy. I’d love to know what you think about it and how it impacts your prayer life.

This Sunday will be another special day in the life of our church as Julia Giachelli will be baptized at 11:00 a.m. It’s wonderful to watch how God is moving in our church!

See you Sunday!
