Rev. Paul M. Turner, Founding and Senior Pastor, Gentle Spirit Christian Church

Prayers and Praises

Let Us Pray for Christ’s Holy Universal Church throughout the world, for the ministers of God’s holy word and sacraments and all the clergy of the same; for the great Council of our nation, Judges, and Magistrates of the country, especially for the police and civil servants of the states, cities and towns: that all these in their several callings may serve truly and faithfully to the glory of God and the edifying and well-governing of God’s people, remembering always the strict and solemn account which they must give before the judgement-seat of Christ. And for all other peoples of this world, let us pray that they may live in the true faith and fear of God, in dutiful obedience and brotherly charity one to another. And that there may never be wanting a supply of fit persons to serve God in Church and State, let us pray for a blessing on our universities, colleges, and schools, sound learning may ever flourish and abound. All things let us humbly ask, in Christ’s name, Amen.
