Community Prayer Experience

Updated: Feb 21, 2022

In 2021 the men established a gathering on the third Thursday of the month from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the church. We developed a small but faithful following and now it is time to invite every man, woman, and family to participate. Please come as you are and bring anyone you can. This is a sacred and safe space where you are invited to be yourself in the presence of God and your community. RSVP not necessary but available here.


In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Sing: “Eye Has Not Seen”

Let us open ourselves to the indwelling presence of God. Gently turn your attention to his presence within and among us. We pray with open hearts to the Father, with the Son’s arms around us, in the presence of their everlasting love.

Ten deep breaths together.

Our response is, “Lord hear our prayer.”

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone.

1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (varies)

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God have mercy on me a sinner.

The Jesus Prayer (varies)

Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.

Matthew 28:18-20 (varies)

Our Father: Let us pray the words Jesus taught us: Our Father...


We are gathered here in the presence of the Holy Spirit, open to whatever she creates this evening. Our prayer will be shaped in three moments.

Moment One

One Decade of the Holy Rosary

In this moment we use the Holy Rosary as our guide and our support.

Praying the Psalms

Psalm 46: 2-12 (varies)

Moment Two

Lectio Divina is an ancient form of prayer that invites a stirring of God within you In this simplified Lectio Divina, read the passage to yourself. Is there a word or phrase that resonates with you? Pray quietly over your experience with this passage.

To the weak I became weak, so that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that I might by any means save some.

1 Corinthians 9:22 (varies)

What comes up for you? Who can describe his understanding, or his experience, after contemplating this scripture?

Moment Three

Praying Together

In this moment we look quietly and deeply inside. After three minutes of silent contemplation, discuss with us your most sincere prayer request(s). As you become comfortable, please pray out loud, stand, or raise your hand to receive prayer.

Sing: “Here I Am Lord”


Peace be with you.

Thank you, may God bless us all, and goodnight.
