Prayers of Intercession, 05/13/18

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

Thank you for our mothers and mother-like women in our lives. Today we pray that we may continue to deepen our relationships with these people who are our caregivers, listeners, providers, cheerleaders, confidants, and friends. We are thankful for the life they have given us and the love they share.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Gracious God, thank you for those who serve. For teachers who enrich and enlighten the lives of our children, for nurses who care for our loved ones, for service personnel who respond to a crisis without hesitation, and countless others. All of us are called to use the talents you have given us in our jobs and our lives to serve others, because you first served us.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, be with our members as they are traveling in Guatemala. Let them spread your love from our congregation and help enhance the worship experience and lives of our sister congregation. Open their hearts to be enriched by our brothers and sisters in Christ while they are there.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Holy Spirit, may all our family and friends who need miracles this year, feel your presence. May whoever is feeling weak be given strength. May all those who have heavy burdens have their load lightened. Please bring peace and comfort to all those in need in our congregation including: Steve and family, Donald and family, Todd & Beth, Teri, Rosie, Len, Barbara, Sharon, Jeff, Mary, Joanne, Haley, Dawn, Jackson, Sue, Sharon, Stephen, Tricia, Ginger, Mensajero de Cristo Lutheran Church of Guatemala, Lutheran Health Care Bangladesh, and all service personnel and their families, including Kyle who is being deployed today to Kuwait.

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.
