Pastor Willie Allen-FaiellaDear Friends,

Regardless of how any of us may feel about the verdict delivered yesterday by twelve jurors in Manhattan against former president Donald Trump, it is a sad and challenging time for our nation. It is in times like these that I give thanks for the profound and comforting words of our Book of Common Prayer. We are blessed to have rich spiritual resources at our disposal for times when our own words do not seem to suffice.

As we face the days ahead and what the consequences of yesterday’s verdict might be, I once again turn to our Book of Common Prayer and offer up this amended prayer For our Country (BCP page 820):

Almighty God, we humbly beseech you that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of your favor and glad to do your will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought to these shores out of many nations and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in your Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through in obedience to your law, we may show forth your praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in you to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.

In Christ’s love,
Rev. Willie+

Prayer Requests

Please Pray For...

As the Body of Christ we are called to pray for each other in times of sickness or hardship, or any form of distress, as well as to give thanks for the bounty and goodness which God has given us.

We are also happy when our prayers have been answered or are no longer needed as the illness, crisis, or concern may have passed. If you have anyone currently on our prayer list who has been blessed in this way please contact Cecilia Braham in the parish office ( to let her know if there are any names to be removed. Many thanks in advance.
