Prayers of Intercession, 11/24/19

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

Life-giving God, we give thanks for the world that you created. From the depth s of the ocean to the heights of the mountains, protect our world and help us to sustain it for years to come.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Compassionate God, we give thanks for those who lead our communities. Guide them to serve with compassion and empower them to work for justice and fairness for all.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Welcoming God, we give thanks for the places that we call home. Bless those who are still searching for home and help us to be a welcoming presence to those who come to our home here at Grace. We pray especially for our guests with the Matrix shelter and those who serve them.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Gracious God, we give thanks for the ways in which you equip the church to be a light to the world. Help us to serve in ways that give glory and thanks to you.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Loving God, we give thanks for the comfort that you bring us in hard times. Be with those who are struggling in body, mind, or spirit. We pray especially for Jeff, Felicia, Jim’s family, Kathy, Erin, Austin, Gavin, Casey, Crystal, Julie, Gladys, Bernie and family, Linda & Todd, Jeff & family, Cody and family, Lynda, Ken, Rachel & Derek, Dave, Pete, Edward, caregivers of those with dementia, Sandy, Betty, Gloria’s family, Sarah, Bev, Mensajero de Cristo Lutheran Church of Guatemala, and all service personnel and their families.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
