Prayers of Intercession, 09/16/18

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

Gracious God, you gather congregations together by the power of your word. Bless leaders with the gifts of wisdom and discernment as they seek to make your church the community for which you long.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Creative God, blue whales and honeybees sing the goodness of the earth. Glaciers and deserts declare your greatness. Make us good stewards of our home for the generations to come.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Sovereign God, you raise up governments to protect the widow and orphan. Bless citizens with wisdom and discernment as they choose leaders. Inspire leaders to always seek the common good.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, we pray for those in our Grace community who need your healing touch: Bruce’s family, Ruth, Dwight, Jerry & Pat, Clifford & family, Dave, Todd, Stephanie, Rob and family, Judy, Mary, Dave, Dolly, Mel, Pete, Lois’ mother, Joan, Dick & Joanne, Marilyn, Alec, Karen, Lila & Herb, Len, Haley, Dawn, Jackson, Sue, Stephen, Tricia, Ginger, Mensajero de Cristo Lutheran Church of Guatemala, and all service personnel and their families including Kyle, who is currently deployed.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Welcoming God, you place children among us. Teach us to honor the children in our midst and to pay attention to what they can teach us about who you are.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

You surround us with a cloud of witnesses who announce the good news of abundant life to a sad and needy world. Make us a pilgrim people, always telling the story of your loving kindness.

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.
