The Witness Continues with Prayer

June 8, at 5 p.m., two weeks after the death of George Floyd, the Poor People’s Campaign is inviting United Methodists and all people of conscience to join in a moment of silence for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, in remembrance of the time George Floyd “had the literal knee of the state on his neck.” This time of reflection is the culmination of a day of fasting and focus. You can tune in at; and click here for a litany you can read after the moment of silence.

Emmanuel’s Prayer Ministry group invites you to their weekly prayer conference call. Every Wednesday from 7:30pm to 8pm you can join the call, just email Judy Davies at for the information.

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:

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 – Two people are better off than one, for they can each help each other succeed.  If one person falls the other can reach out and help.  But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.

Prayer:  Lord, help us to seek others to assist us as we strive to do your will.  We need the help of others to encourage and guide us as we work to complete the tasks that you have given us.  Place your saints in our path so that we can turn to them when we are in need of assistance.  Please send your anointing on us and those we select to help us, so that the work will not overwhelm us.  Working with your saints, we know that if we fall we will surely be able to get up and continue the task.  Thanks for the work that you have given us to do and for the help you have provided for us.  Amen.
