Prayers of Intercession, 11/26/17

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

As conflicts around our world continue, help us to find comfort and peace. These senseless acts of violence, especially in places of worship such as Egypt this week, cause us all pain and suffering. Let these acts cease and move us into action to do your work. Use our hands and hearts to help people in crisis and end this constant battling.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

As we gathered together with family and friends for Thanksgiving, we were reminded of your love and grace. We all have much to be thankful for and through you, we remember the grace you have given us. It was a wonderful day to recognize all the good in our troubled world and give blessings to our loved ones.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, we thank you for the gift of traditions and festivities that help us remember the deeper meanings of the holy season that will soon be upon us. We pray that you replace our anxieties with the calm and the strength of your Holy Spirit. Fill us with energy, O Spirit, to do those things which you would have us do, and teach us to watch well and patiently wait.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Holy Spirit, please bring peace and comfort to all those in need in our congregation including: Evie and family, Vicki, Rick, Martha’s dad, Keri, Linda’s brother, Lila, Helene, Gladys, Haley, Dawn, Jackson, Sue, Sharon, Stephen, Tricia, Ginger, Mary Pat, 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.
