Prayers for the Pilgrims to the Holy Land

Dear companions in Christ:

We are just a few short weeks away from Hope’s spiritual pilgrimage on February 25. We invite you to pray for the pilgrims as we prepare for a life changing journey.

Cyndy Hardaker, Alice Collins, Gail Pisacane, Debbie Ewing, Fay Flanary, Jean Chrones-Khun, Pat & Bill McClure and I have been engaged in a preparation study for the trip. We have explored the geography and demographics, the culture and history, the food, and the politics of Holy Landboth the ancient as well the modern world of Jesus’ home land. Cyndy Hardaker has become our in-house resident researcher, bringing fascinating videos about the Dead Sea Scrolls and Masada.

Please help us to meditate and be ready for the experience.  I wish we could all go but feel that we are going on your behalf, there may be other opportunities in the future for others to go on this spiritual journey. We are going to visit two places where we can bring your prayers written on a piece of paper or cloth; one is the place where Jesus had breakfast after the resurrection and the other is the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Let us be your messengers to bring good tidings to our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land.

Wonder and awe

             Great expectation

                          Tireless anticipation

                                          Fill our hearts

                                                  And provoke our minds.

Holy Spirit guide

                With inspiration

                         Let the living stone

                                Of the genesis land

                                         Speak once more

                                                  The story of our Lord.


Blessings, Pastor Aida
