Prayer enriches our lives and our relationship with God. Prayer can be a stress reliever, and can be a form of meditation. The Book of Common Prayer is a treasure trove of prayers that provide a helpful guide for how to pray and when to pray.

Here are a few formal ways we pray together as the people of God, as the people of Grace, with some daily prayer resources for you to use at home.

If you’d like to be added to our prayer list which is printed in our weekly worship bulletin, please contact the office at adminassist@gracetc.org, or by calling 231-947-2330

Centering Prayer

Centering prayer is wordless prayer, a quiet, contemplative method of surrendering our words and thoughts to God. There is some time spent in silence and then we read and reflect on God’s Word (Lectio Divina). Join us as we hold space for the Holy Spirit to move in our midst.

Meeting time: Wednesdays from 11am to Noon in the prayer room on the lower level of the parish hall (LL3).

Daughters of the King

Several women at Grace are members of the St. Clare of Assisi Chapter of the Order of the Daughters of the King. This religious order for women of the Anglican Communion take a vow of daily prayer, service, and evangelism in Christ’s name with an emphasis on the needs of our parish.

Would you like your name to be added to their daily prayer list? Contact Penny Campo-Pierce at 231-946-1224 or pcampopierce@charter.net.

Healing Prayers

Healing is one of the sacraments of the church, and is offered during communion at the Saturday, 5pm, service and on the first three Sundays at the 10am worship service.

To receive the laying on of hands and anointing with oil, seeking healing for yourself or for a member of your family or a friend, go to the healing station located at the entrance of the columbarium. This ministry continues Jesus’ healing mission through his followers.
