Prayers of Intercession, 03/04/18

Renewed in the promises of baptism, let us pray for the church, the world, and all who are in need.

We pray for the church. Lead us faithfully in the way of the cross. Unite us as one body in Christ. Empower us with courage to speak out against injustice and greed, demonstrating with our words and bodies the love of Jesus

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray for the world. For sheep, cattle, and all livestock. For wild creatures, service animals, and pets. Provide shelter, food, and safe drinking water for every living creature. Protect the earth from disaster and harm.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray for the nations. Teach us to honor one another as you command. Protect refugees and immigrants fleeing from their homes in search of safety and freedom. Guide lawmakers, peacekeepers, and all who work toward reconciliation and justice.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray for those in need. For those who lack what they need for daily life. For people whose lives are consumed by their possessions. For those who grieve, and for all who are ill, especially for Todd’s family, Judy, Joanne, Carol & family, Karen, LaVonne, Len, 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.

We remember with gratitude those who have gone before us. Inspire us by their witness and example. Bring us with them into the joy of eternal life with you.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Trusting in your covenant of mercy, O God, we lift our prayers to you, through your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
