Prayers of Intercession, 06/30/19

Joining our voices with God’s people around the world, let us offer our prayers for those in need.

For all followers of Christ; for the church and its ministers; for non-profit workers and faithful volunteers; for congregations who generously host visiting youth groups and let them sleep in their church fellowship halls and parsonages; and for the mission of the gospel, that all will know the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For the prairies and the mountains; for white water rapids, red rock formations, and mountaintop sunsets; for the wilderness and deserts; for the rain forests and tundra; for native lands and farm land; and for all who tend the land, that God’s mighty work be seen in all creation.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For those who govern; for those who make decisions about affordable housing, for those who distribute resources to vulnerable people, for those who provide mental health services, for those who can help make sure food is given to hungry people and not wasted; for those responsible for peace among people and nations; and for those who strive for freedom, that all are guided by Christ’s commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For refugees and asylum seekers in need of protection; for those experiencing homelessness and in need of shelter; for those who are ill or injured and are in need of medical care but don’t have money to pay; for those struggling with addictions; for those who work in the summer heat; and for those who suffer in body, mind or spirit – especially Jeanne, Lil, Bob and Barb, Ingrid, Bob and Judy, Nikki, Lois, Andrea and family, Dick and Carol and family, Stan, Curtis, Michael, Betty, Sheldon, Jeff, Barb, Sophie, Dave, Tricia, Jerome, Mensajero de Cristo Lutheran Church of Guatemala, and all service personnel and their families; that God provide compassionate advocates and skilled care givers to aide them.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For those who travel this summer; for those celebrating significant events in their lives; for those celebrating birthdays; for holiday celebrations during the coming week; and for this community of faith, that the love of Christ be present in all gatherings with the ones we hold dear.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

In thanksgiving for those who now rest in the hope of the resurrection, that with them we receive assurance that God does not abandon us in any time or place.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Merciful God, you hear the prayers of your people even before they are spoken. We commend these and all our prayers to you, trusting in your abundant mercy; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. AMEN.
