Prayers of the Faithful for July 29 & 30, 2017
Let us pray now for all who seek a world that is good, peaceful and loving.
For the Church: that we may experience deep joy in finding Christ who fulfills all the longings of our heart, we pray:
For the grace to trust: that we may rely upon God’s generous love to sustain us and bring good out of all the experiences of our life, we pray:
For all who are seeking, wandering, or fleeing: that God will open new doors for them where they can find meaning, purpose, and acceptance, we pray:
For all who are engaged in evangelization and outreach: that they may cast a wide net through offering hospitality and dynamic witness to the Good News to all whom they encounter, we pray:
For the grace to let go: that we may surrender our old ways, have strength to endure the transition, and receive the new beginnings that God offers us, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including, Tom Diger. May they find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
For all who mourn the death of a loved one, especially Warren Johnson, the husband of Diane Johnson, and Jodi Bjellum, the daughter of Kathy Zelmer. May all who have died be forever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:
God who offers us a fruitful harvest, we pray for the wisdom and courage to look beyond life’s daily distractions and false hopes. Give us eyes that can see and hearts that are open to all that you have promised. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
