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 For ...

  • Peace and comfort for the family and friends of Beth Dryer, who has passed to the Greater Life.
  • Healing, peace and comfort for: Pete Olsen, Carlee Ramirez's brother, who continues to battle colon cancer; John Bianchette and family (good friends of Brian & Laura Parker) as he battles a serious spinal fluid virus at Henry Ford in Detroit; Tony (Cathie Killewald’s friend); 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.
  • All those serving, or who have served, in our military.
  • Our country, its leaders and for world peace in a troubled time.
  • All the churches in our Presbytery that are in transition. And for our church during these difficult times.

Prayers For Those Suffering From Natural And Man-made
Disasters ...

  • For the families of the victims and those affected by Hurricanes Ian and Nicole.
  • For those affected by the fire in downtown Holly.
  • For all those people affected by the war in Ukraine.

Prayer requests from the Presbytery ...

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

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.
