Weekly Prayer Focus

The prayer ministry invites you to remember their weekly prayer focus, taken from the “Homeless Prayers and Scriptures 2019 Calendar”:

This Week’s Scripture & Prayer:

Mark 12: 30-31

And you must love the Lord your god with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, all your strength. The second is equally important:  Love your neighbor as yourself.  No other commandment is greater than these.

Prayer:  Lord our god, please help us to run this race in accordance to your ordinances and wishes.  Bless our mission in the world to carry out instructions to feed the hungry, to visit those in hospitals, and in jail.  Give us forbearance when we struggle to remain strong and upright through the winds and diverse adversaries moving against us.  Grant us your peace and serenity as we seek to do your will.  Have mercy on our leaders as they move in directions that are not in accordance with your instructions to be kind and merciful.  Above all Lord, let us learn to love each other as you would have us to love.  Amen.

A special call to prayer: BWC called to bring light and hope to refugee crisis

On June 20 at 8:30 p.m., the people of the Baltimore-Washington Conference will join in a candlelight vigil as they observe World Refugee Day. Light a candle at your home, with your neighbors, at your church or join with Justice for our Neighbors at 30 Courthouse Square in Rockville.

Every minute, 20 people leave everything behind to come to the United States, escaping war, persecution, or terror. Your congregation is encouraged to raise its voice for these immigrants and for justice. You can share photos using #WorldRefugeeDayJFON to show your support from wherever you are.

Make a difference today in the lives of thousands of immigrants as they face borders, barriers, hardships and other obstacles as they seek to create new lives. Donate online
