Prayers of Intercession, 06/18/17

With the whole people of God in Christ Jesus, let us pray for the church, those in need, and all of God’s creation.

Called together in the Spirit’s embrace, let us pray for the mending of God’s world. Heal our divisions and unite us in mission. Stir our hearts to compassion, that we become healers for the sake of our whole creation.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Holy One, give rulers and citizens wisdom in the use of power, that wars may cease and all who suffer exile, hunger, and terror find safe haven.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Bless all who father among us and all who yearn for a protective father. Grant wisdom, patience, and good humor. Thank you for those who have shown us fatherly care.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Compassionate One, stay near to all who suffer broken hearts, fearful spirits, and disruptive illness. Bring healing and hope to our people, especially LaVonne, Mary, Derrick, Tianna, Carla, Barb, Dawn, Jackson, Sue, Sharon, Stephen, Arlys, Mary Pat, Evie & Bill, Ginny, Tricia, Lauren, Ginger, Ora, Mensajero de Cristo Lutheran Church of Guatemala, the Clown Ministry, Lutheran Health Care Bangladesh, and all service personnel and their families.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Into your hands, gracious God, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in your mercy; through Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.
