Today’s Prayer

We pray for the healing of metropolitan Richmond: for the sick and those on our hearts; for the welfare of all of our citizens; for the establishment of God's order in our community; and for peace. On Sundays we pray for our fellow citizens who live in the counties of Charles City, Goochland, Powhatan, and New Kent: the Supervisors, School Boards, and Administrators. We also pray for an end to racial prejudice. We pray for all places of prayer or worship:churches, mosques, and synagogues. We pray for all who seek God. We pray for colleges, seminaries, and technical schools.
