Prayers of the Faithful for February 6 & 7, 2016
Let us pray now for our own needs and the needs of the whole world.
For the church: that it may support with great mercy all who seek to respond to God’s call, we pray:
For those called to promote peace throughout the world: for political and military leaders; for diplomats and negotiators, we pray:
For those called to promote social and economic justice throughout the world; for all organizations and groups that protect civil and human rights, we pray,
For those called to serve God by caring for their families and friends, their neighborhoods and workplaces, their churches and schools, including groups from Risen Savior such as Feed My Sheep and Habitat for Humanity, we pray:
For those who feel unworthy to be called or do not recognize that they are being called, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers. May they be healed by God’s loving touch, including, MarySebastian, Jodi Thamert, Karen Randall, we pray:
For those who have died, especially Deacon Chuck Bernard, husband of Marie Bernard; John Feltes, the father of Lisa MacKenzie. May they find comfort in the arms of God, we pray:
O God, you sent your son among us so that we might follow him in bringing others to salvation. Hear our prayer that we might be faithful in all we do and come one day to share the fullness of life with you. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
