Now is the time for all of our parish family to come together with every gift pledge, large or small, as we celebrate God's work here at St. Philip's and prepare for future ministry. Whether it's a few dollars from a child's lemonade stand or a more substantial gift, every person in our parish family matters, and we want everyone to be part of this generational opportunity to shine the light. If you haven't yet pledged, now is the time--as the old song says, "This little light of mine; I'm going to let it shine!" We need all those lights together to shine brightly for the Gospel!

"House of Prayer" Prayer Points

News--House of Prayer Richards

In Isaiah 56:7, the Word of God says, “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” We have never needed to remember these words more than right now. My hope is that our church will begin to consider the prayer points offered up below for us to pray. James says in  5:16, “The effective fervent prayers of a righteous man avails much.” 

Prayer Points for Local Needs

1. For good health and protection for our clergy and their families.

2. For the grand return of our Wednesday night services on September 22.

3. For God’s choice for our next bishop. 

4. For the oral arguments expected to be given to the State Supreme Court regarding the lawsuit against our diocese within the next few weeks. Pray for justice and righteousness to prevail on our behalf.

5. For the virus to end and for those that have it to be healed.

6. For peace for our city:

  • for our leadership
  • for our police
  • for no more violence
  • for our businesses to thrive
