On Sunday right after the sermon, The Right Reverend Larry Benfield dedicated a new icon and prayer station in the transept of St. Mark’s. This was generously given to the Honor and Glory of God, and in memory of Glenda Stayton. Feel free to kneel and say a prayer.
Blessing of a Prayer Station
Bishop: Christ is the icon of the invisible God; all things were created through him and for Him. The Word became flesh:
People: And dwelt among us.
Bishop: Let us pray.
Almighty God, whose Son our Savior manifested your glory in his flesh, and sanctified the outward and visible to be a means to perceive realities unseen: Accept, we pray, this representation of St. Mark; and grant that as we look upon it, our hearts may be drawn to things which can be seen only by the eye of faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
