Memorial Service at Holy Trinity

    The well attended second annual Memorial Service at Holy Trinity Alma Anglican Church was held on Sunday, July 21st at 2:30pm - officiated by Rev. Andrew Mortimer, who also played his guitar for hymns.  
     The service began in the cemetery with the intention of moving in to the church half way through, however, the day was so lovely we decided to stay outside.
     Following the service we went in to the church to have refreshments and fellowship.

     Thanks Janet for doing the bulletins!

Be Mine, prayer by Janet Mortimer

Above: Heaven's Garden by Marino Petro, marinapetro.blogspot.com

There is a garden of rest, I call you to,
A place to come to be with me,
A place to leave the world behind,
A place of love and healing mind,
Look up, kneel down, let go, be mine.

Prayer for All Leaders in the Church

( A Bedside Prayer Card )
     Lord, watch over the leaders in your Church. Keep them faithful to their vocation and to the proclamation of your Gospel. Teach them to recognize and interpret the signs of the times. Strengthen them with the gifts of the Holy Spirit and help them to serve their subjects well, especially the poor and lowly. Give them a vivid sense of your presence and the knowledge of how to show it to others.

Prayer for The Tongue

1 Peter 3: 10: For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech. (NIV)

Prayer for The Tongue (Prayers from the Word by Jane Jones)
Father, help me to put a guard on my lips so that I will only speak words of life (Prov. 18:21). I determine to guard my heart so that life flows forth from me. Let my lips speak only truth in love. (Prov. 34:13). My tongue will speak of Your righteous word (Ps. 119:72) and I will promote life. (Prov. 12:18). Let the law of kindness always be on my tongue (Prov. 31: 26) Amen.

Jeremiah 33: 3 “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”.
 .......and He will.
