That the church proclaim the good news of the resurrection throughout all lands, we pray:
That world leaders tirelessly work for peace and justice to help bring an end to terror and violence in the world, we pray:
That we work to protect all life, from beginning to end, we pray:
That the newly baptized and those newly received into the Church continue their lifelong journey into the paschal mystery, we pray:
That we become missionary disciples and carry Christ’s message of love and hope to others through our parish ministries and in our daily lives, we pray:
That those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, find healing, including: Bud Woeste, we pray:
That all who mourn the death of a loved one find comfort in the joy of Jesus’ resurrection, especially Raymond Hanson, the husband of Jean Hanson; we pray:
Glorious God, you raised up your Son from the dead. Raise us up and hear our prayer that we may praise your glory today and always. We pray though Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
