Prayers of Intercession, 12/23/18

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, Christmas is a time of peace throughout all lands. Please guide the peacemakers so that they might someday inherit the earth. Let there be less and less violence and more and more understanding and love.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray that you will keep all travelers safe during this busy holiday season so that they may drive safely to visit with family and friends and return safely to their homes.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, we pray for our military personnel who are gone from their homes and cannot be with the families during both this Christmas season and always. May they be brought home safely to be reunited with their families as soon as possible.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, please be with our pastors, staff, and volunteers, keeping them healthy and strong so they may be able to continue the wonderful work being done here at Grace for our congregation and our community.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray especially for those who need your healing touch: Eileen, Mandy, Jill, Jim’s family, Lynette, Len & Betty, Jan, Steve, Jean, Ruth, Roald & Shirley, Dave, Karen, Haley, Dawn, Jackson, Sue, Stephen, Tricia, 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.

Into your hands, gracious God, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in your mercy; through Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.
