Prayers of Intercession, 09/10/17

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

O God of peace and mercy, we ask your special blessing on the people of the Caribbean, Florida, Texas, the Gulf Coast, our western states, and other places affected by hurricanes, floods and wild fires. Give us the courage to love our neighbor as ourselves, even neighbors we have never met, and to be generous with the funds they need to rebuild. Watch over them in their time of peril, and give them strength.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

O God of life, as we begin another year of activities at Grace, we pray for our ministerial, program and support staff. Be with our teachers here at Grace, and in all our schools, as they enter a new year of possibilities, and equip them to make a difference in the lives of their students.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

O God of love, bring your healing touch to all the members of our congregation and community in need: Jim and family, Gene, Diane, Tyler, Betty, Gary, LaVonne, Carla, Mike’s mom, RJ, Melissa, Karen, Dawn, Jackson, Sue, Sharon, Stephen, Arlys, Evie & Bill, Tricia, Lauren, Ginger, 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.

Gracious God, we are gathered in your name and we know you are among us. Increase our trust and faith in you, and inspire us to increased involvement in your ministries in every way.

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.
