Prayer

One of our most important Christian goals is to pray daily and together if there is a family present. Prayer cards for many occasions have been provided to our participants or can be downloaded as a part of the Faith First Manual. The column to the right has some links you might find helpful.

The Book of Common Prayer
The Book of Common Prayer is a treasure chest full of devotional and teaching resources for individuals and congregations, but it is also the primary symbol of our unity. We, who are many and diverse, come together in Christ through our worship, our common prayer. 

"It is a most invaluable part of that blessed 'liberty wherewith

Christ hath made us free,'

That in his worship different forms and usages may without offence be allowed,

Provided the substance of the Faith be kept entire"

~ Book of Common Prayer, page 9

Scripture

We are challenged to read and meditate on God's Holy Word regularly at home. St. Mark's reference library is constantly growing; visit the Gallery in Founder's Hall to browse through the assembled selections to see what speaks to you. The Bible is called the living word for a reason... it's real and applicable to your life.

But [Jesus] answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone,

But by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Matthews 4:4
