Bless all those that need your touch, whether physical illness, whether they are the doubts that the Devil brings to us, whatever their needs be, let them rededicate themselves to you knowing that you are our help, that no where else will we find the hope and assurance that we need in this life.

Closing Prayer – Dear God in Heaven, we know you are a Holy God. Each time we say the Lord’s Prayer, we say hallowed by thy name. May that be our attitude toward you. We do bring our requests to you. We know that you love us and that nothing is out of your control. In these many requests we bring before you may we have faith to know you are guiding us, and sometimes through us the forces of evil are fought back. Give us strength and faith. Watch over us and keep us in your care and keep us always on the path, that you would have us go around the obstacles, but never failing to stay on the path and never failing to progress. Now bless us as we continue to worship. May everything done here be for your love and glory, and for the help and love of each of us and those we care for. In Christ’s name we pay. Amen.
