Prayers of Intercession, 09/23/18

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, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, be with all who walk the road to the cross. For the mission of the gospel where your church is forgotten, for disciples wrestling with betrayal, for all who seek the Lord and your guidance and your light, for all overwhelmed by sorrow, and for all who live in poverty, with disease, chronic pain and anxiety in this world. Be with them, hold them, care for them as we pray.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, we pray for the people caught up in the events of the natural world and hope that you will bring relief and safety to those parts of the world that need our comfort and care whether it be due to extreme heat or flooding of people’s homes. Renew the waters of the earth and restore us to a right relationship with all creation.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray for women, young and old, in our congregation, our ministry and around the world. Fill them with your incredible peace. Wrap them in your love. May they feel confident and worthy. Help them with anything they are struggling with, surround them with encouragement. May they experience joy today in Jesus’ name and know that they are made in God’s image and that they walk hand-in-hand.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray for our Grace Lutheran Church community, for our members who we have either lost or need our care and thoughts in their time of need. We pray especially for Judy’s family, Bruce’s family, Ruth, Jerry & Pat, Clifford & family, Dave, Stephanie’s family, Mary, Dave, Dolly, Mel, Pete, 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, and to those we keep in the silence of our  hearts.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

O God, you are our creator, our redeemer, our Savior, and our mother. Send your spirit daily to empower us and fill us with grace. Whatever we may be facing, help us to commit our way to you, trust you, wait patiently for you, and know that, as we have seen repeatedly throughout history, you do act, but in your own way and time. Lead us to your way of peace, justice and love through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

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.
