Prayers of Intercession, 03/31/19

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

God of grace, we ask that you be with the victims and survivors of storms and floods around the world. We pray for those impacted by tropical cyclone Idai in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. Keep them in your care as they grieve the deaths of hundreds of their family, friends and neighbors, and throughout the coming months and years as they work to rebuild.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray also for the people of western Afghanistan who, displaced by severe drought last year, are now suffering the devastation of severe flash flooding. Be with them as they strive to recover their homes and livelihoods. Closer to home, keep people safe as flood waters rise and recede in the Red River, Missouri River, Minnesota River, and Mississippi River valleys.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

God of hope, we pray for the victims and survivors of domestic violence. Bless them and keep them in your care as they recover from the physical injuries and emotional trauma of their ordeals. Give them strength to put one foot in front of the other and help them to feel as lovable and worthwhile as all your children. Help them to heal and to find and develop healthier relationships. We pray also for the perpetrators of domestic violence. Lead them towards justice and recovery. Help them to heal from their own emotional pain, old and new, and guide them also to healthier relationships.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

God of love, bless all of your children and give relief to those who are suffering from mental and physical illness and social isolation. We pray especially for the Kindem family, Sharon, Barb & Ken, Al & Lois, Barb, Rachel, Rob, Sophie, Chloe, Matthew, Cathy, Buddy, Emily, Kayla, Molly, Mark Brandell & family, Megan, Beth, Amy, the Maye family, Pam, Karen, Ruth, Mary, Dave, Bob, Deb Brandt and the Domke family, Haley, Jackson, 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.
