We are called to live in the light of the resurrection, and so we pray to God who faithfully hears and answers our prayers.
For the Church: that it may demonstrate the meaning of the resurrection, we pray:
For encouragement for those yearning for peace in the face of war, violence, and conflict, we pray:
For encouragement for those struggling to make ends meet for themselves and their families, we pray:
For those who struggle to believe in the resurrection, especially those who have lost a loved one, we pray:
For all we are called to minister to in this community and beyond, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including, Doug Vetter, Jerome Munch, Colleen Greeley. May God’s healing love touch them and restore them to fullness of life, we pray:
For those who mourn and those who have died, especially LaVonne Perron, the mother of Sandra Sand; may all who have died be forever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:
God of everlasting life: keep us hopeful in what lies beyond, while we struggle to live life fully each and every day. Help us to be people of faith and hope, who encourage those who have lost hope. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
