Prayers During these Difficult times:
Please O Lord our God. We come to you to admit our sins which are too many to number. We have not loved you faithfully above all else. We have turned away from the overwhelming needs of many others. We have allowed chaos, corruption, and selfishness around and within us to discourage us. These challenges have weakened our faith. We turn now to seek forgiveness. Lead us back to become true servants. Help us purify our thoughts and focus on righteousness. Let us surrender to His will and know we are forgiven. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus. Amen.

Prayers of Comfort ...

  • For the family and friends of Helen Bates, who has passed to the Greater Life.
  • For the family and friends of Fran Olson, who has passed to the Greater Life.
  • For those affected by the fire in downtown Holly.
  • For all those people affected by the war in Ukraine. Bring protection and healing to the people of Ukraine. Show them that You are with them and that You hear their prayers. Strengthen those who are hurt, alone, or broken, and Bless them with Your Peace and Hope.

Prayers of Concern ...

  • For healing, strength, comfort, and peace for: Beth Dryer, who has had a stroke; Sherry (our beloved secretary) as she recuperates from a second surgery; Cathie Killewald; Donna DeNise as she recuperates from knee surgery; Barb Brown; Steve in Florida (Friend of Cathy & Bob Killewald) who has stage 4 bladder cancer; Jim Killewald (Bob & Cathie’s son) who has a lot of pain.
  • For all those who are suffering from natural and man-made disasters.
  • For all those serving, or who have served, in our military.
  • For our country, its leaders and for world peace in a troubled time;
  • For all the churches in our Presbytery that are in transition. And for our church during these difficult times.

Prayer Requests from the Presbytery ...

  • The Rev. Peter Russell, Honorably Retired, who is residing at Abbey Park in Grand Blanc.
  • Prayers for the Presbytery's Mission Co-Workers:
  • Prayers for all of the churches in our Presbytery that are in transition.

Missions

"In The Beginning" Baby Pantry
The "In the Beginning” Baby Pantry" is open at the Holly Presbyterian Church on 1st and 3rd Friday of each month from 10 a.m. until 12:00 noon. There will be clothing, diapers, and toiletries available for children.

Masks are now optional for fully vaccinated individuals per CDC recommendation.
Children 5 and under are not required to wear masks.

If you would like to help, please see Cathy or Donna.


Prayers For Our Missionary Families
The Holly Presbyterian Church supports two missionary families as part of our ongoing outreach to the world: the Keefer family (serving Christ through their Athletes in Action ministry at U of M in Ann Arbor, Michigan) and the Iobst family (serving Christ through the Operation Transit ministry in Paris, France).  We are called to act as the hands and feet of Christ in our world, and because we cannot all serve in full time ministry, we offer our support financially, and spiritually, to those who do. Please pray for these families and consider sending them a note or e-mail of encouragement.
