THE FRIEND OF JESUS PRAYER
Don’t walk behind me because I may not want to lead. Don’t walk ahead of me I may not want to follow. Walk aside me and be my friend!
Prayer is a powerful tool and I am sure many of you can witness to that, and it is such an important time for all of us to turn to Jesus in prayer for ourselves and everyone. Faith and prayer will help so many of us get through this most difficult time. Join our Prayer Walk! You can email firstname.lastname@example.org. with your name and email to get on the list to receive emails to help pray for special intentions.
Also, if you have a request for a special prayer intention for you or a family member email the intention to email@example.com

Let’s continue to pray for all the nursing home patients that feel so alone and for their families that cannot visit them, let them know they are not alone, Jesus is with them always, and pray that soon restrictions can be lifted.
For Doctors, nurses, researchers, all medical professionals who unselfishly put themselves at risk, that God will be there to give them strength to continue. For all our essential workers at grocery stores, truck drivers, factory workers producing products needed to battle this virus, food pantries and so many more, keep them safe from this virus. Though things seem to be improving in our area we need to pray that everyone makes correct choices and adhere to following the rules for the benefit of all.
Our leaders of our state and country give then the wisdom to make the right decisions and continue to have a true concern for the well-being for the people they were chosen to serve.
Please pray for our pastor, Msgr Ryan while he continues to lead us in our spiritual guidance during this difficult time, for the parish staff , for all our volunteers and our parishioners to stay healthy and in place of our anxiety turn to Jesus for guidance and strength.
We will get through this, all of us praying together for a positive outcome. We pray for the help and guidance as we return to Eucharistic Celebration, the Mass at Our Lady of Grace.
We will be creating our Prayer Walk Garden at OLG soon to unite us in prayer the month of July. Check the bulletin or website for further info. It is through our Faith Formation families but we would love to have all our parishioners participate. Please continue to send me any special intentions you may have, the next Prayer Walk will go out at the end of the month.
