Prayers of Intercession, 12/03/17

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 love, you fulfilled your word by sending us a Savior, your son, Jesus Christ. As we prepare for his coming, keep us awake, so we don’t miss it. In the busyness of the season, we mistake media hype for truth. We follow false prophets disguised as movie stars or sports heroes, but they lead us into darkness. Lord, we come today believing that your presence will bring life and light to our world.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

O God of hope, we pray for all those recovering from terrorist attacks, gun violence, and natural disaster. Be with them after the TV cameras are gone, and inspire us to continue to provide the help they need. We also pray for those enduring any form of harassment Lord, change our behavior, and help us overcome these insults with our support, understanding, and hope for the future.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

O God of Mercy, you know each one of us, and every need we have. Bring your healing touch to Keith, Scott, Jeff, Lila, 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.

Great Lord, we are the clay and you are the potter. We are all the work of your hand. We praise you for the life of Julie Vagle, and how you have molded her into a dedicated servant of our Grace youth. Watch over her as she continues to her new position, working with the youngest students, and molds them into people who love and serve you as much as she does.

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.
