“Almighty God and Creator, forgive me. Holy Spirit, fill me. Son of God, cleanse my heart. I want to yield
to your control. I want to be faithful in every season of life. I want to be spiritually wise in what I say and
do. I want you, O LORD, to have influence and control so that others can know your grace. In Jesus’
name, I ask for these mercies. Amen.” (Spiritfire by Heartlight)
If you would like Intercessory Prayer following the service, please speak to Rev. Soble, Casey Watson, Rev.
Moore, or a deacon. They’d be happy to help.
