Prayers of Intercession, 06/10/18

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

Lord, we pray for all those who have been touched by the devastating volcanoes in Hawaii and Guatemala. Please keep them safe from harm, help in healing the injured, and be with the families of those who lost loved ones, giving them strength for their journey.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We are so grateful that our Guatemala Travel Team returned to us safely, and for the work they did in the village of Santa Elena. Please be with the villagers who are our friends, that they will continue to feel your spirit of joy and love as they go about their hard work, to survive and provide for all their families.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray, as world leaders meet, that they talk of peace to end the conflicts that take from us so many innocent lives and that someday, some way, peace will prevail.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray for those of us struggling with mental health issues, those thinking of hurting themselves or dying by suicide. Please be with them in those dark days to shine your light on them; give us the strength to reach out to help them. Hold them close to you that they may find their path into a brighter tomorrow.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray especially for those we name now, that they may feel your healing touch: Marilyn, Alec, Karen, Lila & Herb, Marlene, Len, 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.

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.
