“Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?”
Quote by Corrie Ten Boom
Dutch Christian who helped many Jews escape the Holocaust and was imprisoned for doing so. Steer with us…please pray five minutes this week for the people of our parish.
5 MINUTE PRAYER
What would happen if we all prayed for one another for five minutes each week?
Starting in October 2013, we are encouraging our parishioners to pray just 5 minutes each week for all the people of our parish. If 6000 people pray for 5 minutes, that's 30,000 minutes or 500 hours of prayer offered to our Eternal Father for one another. Imagine the kind of power that will come from this magnitude of prayer!
This week's 5 minute prayer: Let us pray for each other, and this week especially for those among us who are in the middle of making an important decision-maybe it's about a job or a relationship; whether to move or make a change in life. Whatever it may be, let us pray that all will seek God's guidance in all things. I am praying for you this week. Please pray for me!
...become a better version of yourself!
