Prayers of Intercession, 09/01/19

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

God of creation, we give thanks for the beauty of the world you created. Open our eyes to the destruction that is happening in our world and help us to make the necessary changes needed to protect it. Calm the fires in our forests and the storms that endanger communities. We pray especially for those affected by Hurricane Dorian.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

God of peace, give those who wield international, national, and local power Guide them to the path of leadership filled with compassion, generosity, and thoughtful justice that frees us all from hatred and violence.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

God of comfort, be with students and educators as they prepare to begin the new school year. Whether they are bursting with excitement to reunite with friends or dreading the return of homework, calm their hearts as thy explore their new classrooms, learn new things, meet new people. Guide teachers to teach with love and compassion as they build classroom communities where all are welcome.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Gracious God, we give thanks for the Grace community and its loving and welcoming presence. Help us to continue to be loving and welcoming as we prepare to begin a new season of Grace Bible School, gForce, and all of Grace’s ministries. We also pray for peace as we continue through this time of transition and for the Call Committee and the work that they do to make the transition smooth.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

God of mercy, dry the tears of the sorrowful and comfort those in physical or emotional pain. We pray especially for the family of Dixie Harvey, Dan, Bev, Bob & Lynn, Chris, Juli, Naira, Barb, Casey, Art, Mary, Tricia & family, Mensajero de Cristo Lutheran Church of Guatemala, and all service personnel and their families.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
