For greater trust in the providence of God: that we may be confident of God’s love that will supply for all our needs, we pray:
For all who are suffering from natural disasters, especially those affected by the wildfires in California: that God will give them hope and stir the hearts of many to assist them in their time of need, we pray:
We pray with Bennett Dowe and Dina Palanga and their families, as today, through Baptism, they begin their Christian journey of faith, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including: Lemmy Decario, Mary Koenig, Lito Sy, Phyllis Rascher, Jean Volkov, may they find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
For all who have died, especially, Audrey Kotula, the mother of Don Kotula, that God will fill them with life and give consolation and peace to those who grieve them, we pray:
God who calls us, strengthen us as you have strengthened those who have gone before us. Help us respond more fully to your life-giving invitation. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
