.Summer Prayers


At last Sunday’s worship service, we introduced the LCPC 2022 Summer Prayer card. This is an opportunity for all of us to be praying together, three times a day.


  • In the morning (when you awake), a Prayer of Relinquishment.
  • At mid-day (at 12:12pm so we can all remember), the Lord’s Prayer.
  • In the evening (before you go to sleep), a Prayer of Examen.


Below are the simple prayers that we can pray together:

Morning Prayer
A Prayer of Relinquishment
“Today Lord, I yield myself to you.
May Your will be my delight today.
May You have your perfect sway in me.
May Your love be the pattern for my living.
I surrender to You my hopes, my dreams,

my ambitions.
Do with them what You will, 
when You will,

as You will.
I place into Your loving care my family, my friends, my future.
Care for them with the care I can never give.
May You establish Your kingdom through
my words, my hands, my feet, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.”


Mid-Day Prayer at 12:12pm
Our Father
“Our Father who art in heaven,

hallowed be Thy name;
Thy Kingdom come;

Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our debts,

as we forgive our debtors;
and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. 
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. Amen.”


Evening Prayer

A Prayer of Examen
“O God, we thank You for this day and for meeting our needs.

We give to You our unmet needs and concerns, for we know that You are a good Father.

We give You our thoughts, feelings and actions

of our day.

We remember Your goodness.

May we remember our shortcomings.

We ask for Your forgiveness.

We ask You Lord to take away our worries

and concerns,

trusting in Your provisions for our future.

Thank You God for being with us through-out the night, so we might awaken to Your presence and serve You again as the sun arises.

In Jesus name we pray, Amen.”



You can receive a copy of these prayers at church or they will be posted on our social media pages and on our website. Each of these prayers are a jumping off point for other prayers. It is my hope that we would be praying that God would be moving in our lives and in the lives of people that we know. So, grab a prayer sheet (or two) and place it where you will be reminded to pray.


Thanks for being a part of LCPC family as we pray together.

Pastor’s Note 06/16/22

“31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”                   

Mark 4:31 & 32


Have you ever wondered if your efforts for God make a difference? Does your time, your effort and your resources that you put into “church” really make a difference for God’s Kingdom? Let me say that it does and the above parable reminds us of that.


I am always amazed at how God uses us for His work. Sometimes it is obvious but most of the time it goes unnoticed; but God’s Word states that even the smallest of seeds grows into a large plant.


When we are generous with our resources for God’s Kingdom, amazing things happen. God grows them and His kingdom expands.


Join us this Sunday as we look deeper at the Gospel of Mark and some of Jesus’ parables about the Kingdom.


Have a great week and know that I am praying for you.
