Prayers of Intercession, 02/16/20

With the whole people of God, let us pray for the church, the world, and all those in need.

Creator God, you have created a world filled with beauty and wonder. From the cold winter days to the intense days of summer heat, help us to continue to recognize and maintain the gift of creation that was given to us.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Faithful God, you equip us to serve the world in many ways. Enlighten us to see the gifts we possess as well as the gifts that others are equipped with. Endow us with patience to search for your wisdom. Teach us to speak the truth in a spirit of love, free use from fear to learn from each other. And give us your grace to be different together.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Trusting God, we give thanks for the leaders who are emerging in our own church community and for the leaders in our towns, our country, and around the world. Grant them wisdom through their decision-making and help them to make communities where all are welcomed and loved.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Welcoming God, we give thanks for the baptism of Lola. Be with her and her family as she grows in her faith. Help us to welcome her into the Grace family and into the mission we share.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Healing God, bring comfort and strength to all who suffer. We pray for those who struggle with physical or mental illness, addition, homelessness, and for all other struggles that we hold in our hearts. Bring hope and peace to all, especially Lloyd, Henry, Talitha, Kathy, Marlene, Ron, Donna, Kyle, Loren, Barb, Ken, Sue, Rich, Al, Dave, Mensajero de Cristo Lutheran Church of Guatemala, and all service personnel and their families.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Loving God, you listen to those who cry out to you. We commend these and all our prayers to you, trusting in your abundant mercy, through Jesus Christ.
