Prayers of Intercession, 10/06/19

Knowing the one in whom we trust, and with the help of the Holy Spirit living in us, we offer our prayers for the church, the world, and all in need.

Increase the faith of your church, O God. Give us courage to believe in the plans you have for us, and in your call to abundance in the life of this place. Renew in us your holy calling, according to your own purpose and grace.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Tend the garden of your creation that teems with all kinds of life. Restore us as caretakers of animals and plants, mindful of the generations to come.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Destruction and violence are ever before us, and strife and contention rise up in many nations. Draw to yourself all the people of the world, emboldening them to strive for peaceful and just solutions to conflict.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

You promise life and wholeness to those who wait patiently for you, and you hear those who cry out to you for help. Heal the sick, bind up the brokenhearted, and attend to all in need of your care. We pray especially this day for Dick, Crystal, the Lacy family, Grandpa Stan’s family, Pete & JoAnne, Joan, Tricia’s family, Stan, Matt’s grandmother, Jenna, Al’s family, Sarah, Bev, Mary, Mensajero de Cristo Lutheran Church of Guatemala, and all service personnel and their families.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Trusting and delighting in you, we commend all our lives into your loving hands. We offer these prayers in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
