Prayers of Intercession, 01/07/18

Let us pray for the church, the planet that is our common home, communities near and far, and all who are in need.

You are water that replenishes the earth. Help us see our place in the river of life, and inspire us to seek ways to cool warming tundra and warm cooling tropics.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

You are water that touches near and distant shores. Bring an end to conflict among the rulers of this earth carried out on land and sea, and provide just and equitable access to water among all people.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

You are water that refreshes parched bodies, minds, and spirits. Accompany refugees fleeing their homes by boat and by foot, heal those whose bodies are weak or fragile, and be near to those whose breath of life is fading. We pray especially for Lynda, Megan & Emily; Martha & John, Nora, James & Mila; Annette, Hannah & Michelle; Paris, Tarah, Judy, David, Herb, Don, Linda’s sister and brother-in-law and family, Al, 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.

You are water that flows from countless streams into rivers, lakes, and oceans. Give us vision to see and proclaim in our great diversity the singleness of humanity created in your likeness.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Tribes and nations bow down before you, O God. Hear our prayers and praise, and raise us up to be your living body, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
