Please join us in the very special privilege that God has given each of us as His followers: participating in prayer in His plans for our Church. We meet each week in the Activity Center Family Room from 8:00-8:30 AM to pray specifically for wisdom for our Rector, the clergy and the staff as they direct our life here at St. Martin's. And we also include prayers for those who are sick and hurting in our Parish as well as specific needs for our own families and friends. It has been a joy to watch God at work as He answers our prayers. It's a great way to start the day.

Mon., Apr 21Global Prayer Group
Current events can leave us overwhelmed and full of questions. We have found that when we gather each week to pray, we are participating in the plan that God has for our world rather than worrying about things out of our control. Although we will continue to focus on our soldiers in Afghanistan, we have felt the need to pray for many of the suffering and forgotten people all over the world. This gives us a chance to respond in prayer to the commission of Christ to reach the ends of the earth in His name.

Please join the Global Prayer Group* any Monday from 3:00-4:00 PM in Room 207-209, Payne Education Center.

* This group was formerly called Prayer for Iraq.

Note: This group will not meet on holidays or during Church campus closings. Please contact the group leader for updates.
