Sharing joys and concerns of our members are led by an individual, or those present are asked to share their joys and their concerns using the microphone that is passed around the worship room.
The responses are started by the worship leader after each person completes their prayer item. The leader will determine if the item focuses on thanks or a petition or a concern.
After joys — thanksgivings:
Leader: Loving God,
People: We give you thanks.
After concerns — petitions and intercessions:
Leader: Merciful God,
People: Hear our prayer.
