Intercessions

One of the things the community at St. Nicholas does really well is pray. During the prayers of the people on Sunday, petitions from the congregation included:

  • thanksgiving that a car passed its vehicle emissions test
  • prayers of concern for a parishioner and her pet rabbit
  • prayer for healing for a parishioner with cancer and for courage and strength for his partner
  • prayer for friends in the military

Intercessory prayer, they get it!

Another thing St. Nick's does well is kids. Tonight I met with three of the teens of "Team Awesome" (their choice of name, not mine) to discuss music for their upcoming liturgy. I learned (a) what I think is cool, they don't and (b) Johnny Cash - who I do think is cool - is, indeed, cool! Who knew?!
