2022 Pray For List – Churches and Clergy

CCN-logo-2Welcome to the Clergy Page for the CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN NEBRASKA (Disciples of Christ)

2022 CONGREGATIONAL PRAY FOR LIST

 Without prayer there are some things God cannot say to us, for prayer is the listening ear.

 Without prayer there are some things God cannot give to us, for prayer is the hospitable heart. 

Without prayer there are some things God cannot do through us, for prayer is the cooperative will.

~Leo S. Thorne

 

Prayer is the language of Christian community.

In prayer the nature of the community becomes visible because in prayer

we direct ourselves to the one who forms the community.

We do not pray to each other, but together we pray to
God, who calls us and makes us a new people

~Henri Nouwen

~From Mutual Ministry, by James C. Fenhagen

 

The Scriptures provide a model of Christians supporting each other in prayer:

“I give thanks to God always for you because of the grace of God that has been given you in Christ Jesus.”  (I Corinthians 1:4 NRSV)

“I thank my God every time I remember you, 4 constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you..”  (Philippians 1:3-4  NRSV)

We hope that you will not only include the name of the congregation in your Sunday bulletins,
but also PRAY for these congregations in the PASTORAL PRAYER and during the week.

Let us learn about and pray for and with our congregations in Nebraska and their pastors.
