We thank you, Lord, for all the blessings of this life, for this neighborhood of Getty Square, for all who live and work here, for all who come here for goods and services, for those who are homeless and hungry, for the Sharing Community, Salvation Army, YWCA and the YMCA, the Yonkers Fire and Police Departments, and all who work to help others. We pray for healing for those who struggle with addictions, and physical and mental disabilities. Please bless our vision with compassion and love, so that this Congregation may be the hands and feet of Christ in Getty Square.

We pray for those who have died including Helene Wright, John Afionian, David Emerson, Michelle Tuthill, Mary Kalasky, John Leslie Brindle, Sr., Rosa Viana, Tavon Roberts, J Monroe Stebbins, Charlotte Avallone, and those who have died the world over from war, terrorism--especially the 50 who were massacred in the two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand--and natural disasters--including the tornadoes in Alabama, the flooding in Nebraska and Iowa, the cyclones of East Africa, and the Ethiopian Airline crash. We also lament those who have died over the centuries due to slavery, lynching, racism and the unequal and unjust treatment of peoples in this countr
