For the Church: that we make God central in our lives and allow our hearts to be formed by Christ our Teacher, we pray:
For all who exercise authority and leadership: that they may never place unreasonable burdens on those whom they serve, we pray:
For the grace of humility: that we may relate with one another as companions on the journey and strive to compassionately serve the needs of one another, we pray:
For the victims of terrorism, may God comfort their families and strengthen those who work for peace, we pray:
For all who are grieving: that God will wipe away their tears and console them with God’s presence, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including: Marcia Anderson, Ray Hanson, Debbie Adams. May they find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
For those who have died, that God will fill them with life and give consolation and peace to those who grieve them, we pray:
God our Father, you sent your Son to teach us how to live. Hear our prayers that we may faithfully take up his humble service and one day share in his exaltation. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
