Prayers of Intercession, 02/10/19

Gathered into one by the Holy Spirit, let us pray for the church, the world, and all of God’s creation.

For deep water, and the life it holds, we give you thanks, O God. Grant us the courage to follow you there, and the imaginations and faith to believe that what you have in store for us is good

God, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For the young people in our midst, we give you thanks, O God. Help us to recognize them not as the future of the church, but rather as your church, here and now, looking toward the future, and give us hearts to follow where they lead.

God, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For your whole creation, we give you thanks, O God. Help us to care for it as best we can, and to recognize the ways in which we are not stewarding it as you have asked. Be with us this week, as we face more extreme weather, and with everyone everywhere facing the consequences of climate change.

God, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
