Prayer is a powerful ministry for the people of Salem.  Know that God listens to the hearts of those that are in need and to those that pray on their behalf.

 

For Prayer concerns, please write the names on the white board in the Narthex or let Pastor Routee know.  Names will be read during worship on Sunday morning as well as offered up in daily prayer.

 

If you wish to place someone on our confidential prayer chain, please call Shirley Tallman at (717) 933-8064.

Teach Me Lord

Teach me, Lord, the ways of truth,
So I may not abuse my youth
In idle things that will not give
Instructions in the way to live.
Bless me with a godly mind
That I may walk and be most kind
To all of those who may not know
The
Christian way in which to go.


Teach me, Lord, in my old age
To see your goodness in every page
Of my Bible as I read
Of how you'll meet my every need.
Please teach me, Lord, this prayer I pray
To serve you now in every way.
