In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Lusitanian Church.
In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Minnesota Commission on Indian Work (MCIW); and for the Hispanic, Hmong, Liberian, Karen, and numerous multi-cultural ministries and faith communities throughout the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. We also pray for the parishes of Saint Martin (Fairmont, Minnetonka Beach).
Pray for migrants, refugees, and displaced people throughout the world. Pray also for those in our country who have been taught to fear or hate people different than they are.
We are asked to reflect and devote prayers in honor and appreciation of 400 years of African American history and culture. Read more about this anniversary request from our Presiding Bishop.
