Three-week Intentional Prayer – starting Aug. 1

Pastor Rachael Powell

It may feel very far away right now, but August 1st will be here before we know it!

I would like to invite you to be a part of a three-week period of intentional prayer and reclaiming the sacred in everyday life beginning on Monday evening, August 1st/ Tuesday morning, August 2nd.

A friend introduced me to a wonderful book, “Every Moment Holy: Volume 1.” It is a collection of prayers and illustrations that invites us to become aware of the Spirit’s work in our midst at every moment. For example, it includes prayers “For the Ritual of Morning Coffee” and “Before Consuming Media.” It includes liturgies “For Those Feeling the Impulse to Buy” and “For the Death of a Dream.” One prayer even invites God’s work to be done in us as we do laundry!

I hope this time steeped in prayer and a renewed awareness of God’s presence at all times and in all places may offer each of us a sense of renewal and wonder!

I am happy to place an order for the books for those who would like. Right now, they are listed at $16 for the pocket edition, which I have. If you’re unsure of the size of the type, etc. please feel free to take a look at my copy. Otherwise, the hardcover copy is listed for $23.50.

If this sounds even the slightest bit interesting, please come! And please invite a friend, neighbor, or family member to join us! The Spirit is with us every moment! What if we all became more aware of her presence? How might we be changed?
