"...for we walk by faith, not by sight."
-2 Corinthians 5:7 (NRSV)

Prayer Guide

Daily Prayer

Please pray this prayer daily at 2:57:

God of all and all that is, together we embark upon a journey fueled by faith alone. Help make each footfall of our way a testament of love. Breathe on us; fill our hearts with courage to stride forward into uncertainty, armed with the one true certainty that you, O God of glory and grace, go ever before us. Amen.

Prayer Guide

Over the next four weeks we invite you to join us in an intentional journey of prayer and discernment as we participate in The Walk. During the course of The Walk, we are challenging each other to “walk by faith and not by sight,” and one of the postures of the faithful is the posture of prayer.

Each week, there will be a daily prayer guide for you to follow. We invite you to enter into the practice of daily prayer with companionship: perhaps your family, a close friend or a small group of friends.

  • Each day, begin with the Call to Prayer.
  • Read the Scripture verse for the week.
  • Spend a few moments meditating on the Key Word and Prayer Focus.
  • Pray the Closing Prayer.
  • Remember to leave room for silence and listening for the voice of God.

Helpful Hints

  • There is no wrong way to pray! You may feel comfortable praying out loud with others, praying in silence or by writing your prayers in a journal.
  • No amount of time is too short or too long. Take the amount of time that works and feels comfortable for you.
  • The Daily Prayer Guide can be accessed at any time here on the website.

As we join together in this journey, there are opportunities to share how God is speaking to you during your time of prayer. You may share your prayers by emailing thewalk@stjohnsbr.org or by placing them in the prayer box located in the back of the sanctuary.

Download week 1, week 2, week 3 and week 4, or download the entire month in one file (PDFs).

  Be Welcomed. Be Loved.

We are a Christian community called to share our gifts through worship, witness and service so that others will know God and become disciples of Jesus Christ.

Sunday worship at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.
