Dear Lord, thank You for walking with the people of St. Johns these past years. Your Holy Spirit guided us in the direction You wanted us to go. We ask that You make Your vision clear as we step out in faith.


Gracious God, thank You for the many blessings given to St. Johns. Confessing that we are fearful of the unknown, we pray to see clearly Your plan for us. In Your holy word You tell us that You are about to do a new thing; and that You will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.*


Let St. Johns be an inclusive place for children, youth, and adults that is warm, welcoming, and supportive, where all can express the things important to their lives, a safe place for growth, joy and fun. Send us out into the community to minister to the broken, the challenged, the searching. Help us to make disciples for Christ.


Shine Your grace, O God, on the ministries of this congregation. As we go, give us the solutions to difficulties we may encounter.Take the worry from us, and let us rest in the assurance of Your grace and power and in the joy of Your love.


Here we are, O Lord send us.


In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we pray.
