Our prayer and God’s mercy are like two buckets in a well; while one ascends, the other descends. -Arthur Hopkins
During August, Iowa United Methodist Churches are invited to join our hearts together in prayer for this season of transition in the Iowa Conference. Lifting prayers for Bishop Julius C. and First Lady Racelder Grandberry-Trimble as they prepare to become the resident Bishop and First Lady of the Indiana Conference. Offering prayers for Iowa’s new resident Bishop Laurie Haller and her spouse Rev. Gary Haller as they arrive in Iowa, as well as prayers for the Iowa Annual Conference, churches, laity, and clergy.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7
