Tuesday Prayer

As we enter the summer months, we are taking Tuesday Prayer out of Redeemer's walls into the world. No matter where you are, whether at home, school, work, or vacation, we encourage you to use the Litany for Prayer in conjunction with our weekly prayer list (on the back page of Sunday's insert). We look forward to hearing how prayer shapes you and your summer experiences. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Pastor Erin at Erin@RedeemerMcLean.org
