Prayers of Intercession, 12-17-17

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

Lord, 2017 seems like a year of devastation: floods, fires, famine, and violence in our cities and around the world, innocent lives lost. Let 2018 be a year of hope and tolerance, a place of gentleness and a renewed faith in our Savior and Lord. We can do this.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, we have much to be thankful for and much to celebrate. Let us look to what we have rather than what we do not have and always remember what we do have are gifts from you.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, we are so grateful that you came to us 200 years ago and we await you coming again. Let us make ready for you in our hearts, in our actions, in our words so that others will know us as people of God.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray especially for those who need your healing touch. We pray for Keith’s family, Amara, Herb, Don, Linda’s sister and brother-in-law and family, Al, Margaret; Betsy, Brian & Fionn; 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.
