Dear members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
JESUS PRAYS FOR YOU.
Do you know that Jesus prays for you? In John 17: 15 Jesus prays for His disciples saying: "My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified."
Jesus prays everyday for our protection from the evil .
Hebrews 7:25 says: "Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him," because he always lives to intercede for them."
May God help us to pray for protection of other people as Jesus prays for us.
"I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." (1Timothy 2:1-4).
May God bless you with your families and friends and protect you by the precious blood of Jesus.
