Prayers of Intercession, 11/12/17

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 pray for those still rebuilding their lives after devastating wildfires, floods and hurricanes, in this country and around the world. Give them strength to sustain them; and give us the motivation to help relieve their suffering. Lord, we also pray for the victims of gun violence, which seems like a never-ending scourge on our society. Change the hearts of lawmakers, support our mental health professionals, and watch over those who serve in law enforcement. Lord, we pray that you would use your will to put an end to it.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Gracious God, we pray for the strong continued presence of Grace Lutheran Church in this community. As we make our financial commitments about the future of your ministries, remind us that we invest, but you multiply. We pray that as a forward-thinking congregation, we will demonstrate what responsible, mature, adult discipleship can accomplish, and that we will Keep the Momentum Growing as we continue to serve Grace for decades to come.

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, including Lila, Helene, Gladys, Gary, Will, Addie, DeNae, Judy, Brad, Lois, Haley, Dawn, Jackson, Sue, Sharon, Stephen, Evie & Bill, 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.

O God of life, we rejoice in the marriage of Elissa Johnson and Steve Nelson, yesterday here at Grace, and pray that their life together will be an example of your unconditional love for us.

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.
