The Prayer Tree: A Healing Vine of Hope

When at St. Richard’s Church or passing by on the way to your everyday activities, visit our “Prayer Tree” on the front lawn of the Church near the sacristy door. Step under the tree canopy, open the prayer tree box and write your thoughts, wishes and prayers on the enclosed white card. Slip the white card in the zip lock plastic sleeve being careful to seal the zip lock sleeve to protect your prayer from the weather and then hang it on the “Prayer Tree”.  It has been said, prayers hung on a prayer tree will stay in place for years to come despite stormy weather conditions.

We especially invite you to bring the children of St. Richard’s as well as the surrounding area to the tree for prayer and reflection. The right side of the tree has a low area where the children can hang their prayers. Our “prayer tree” provides all of us the opportunity to express ourselves in a heartfelt and unique way.

Welcome to St. Richard's Episcopal Church!
All are welcome at the table of God
Every man woman and child.
For Christ brings peace to all,
Tearing down every hostile wall.
So that the many may become one,
One heart, one family, one new humanity.
For God who is love, and Christ who is all and in all
Show no partiality and make no distinction.
So neither race nor class, gender nor sexuality,
Politics nor religion, personality nor nationality,
Count for us, or against us.
The light of Christ enlightens all:
Christ the prisoner and the naked,
Christ the hungry and the sick,
Christ the thirsty and the stranger,
Christ the other.
May God’s spirit hover over our chaos,
Our hatred and our indifference.
Descend in our hearts with love and pleasure.
Blow us out into the world to listen and serve.
And set us ablaze to forgive and reconcile.
For all are welcome at the table of God,
Every man, woman and child.
Welcome to St. Richard’s Episcopal Church!
