We are sent to continue Jesus’ ministry; and so we pray for all those he loves here and throughout the whole world.
For the Church: that we may each bring forth the reign of God in our lives, our work and our relationships, we pray:
For all bishops, successors to the Apostles: that God will strengthen and inspire them as they guide the church in fulfilling its mission of proclaiming forgiveness, healing and truth, we pray:
For all who are suffering, for children separated from their parents, those in need of healing, and for those recovering from natural disasters: that God will relieve their suffering, heal their pain and restore their lives, we pray:
For farmers, gardeners and all who work the land; may God provide good weather for an abundant harvest, we pray:
For wisdom: that we may face questions and rejection confidently as we follow God’s call in our lives, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including Evelyn Gans, Don Atkinson, and Randy Bedard. May they find comfort and healing, through God’s love, we pray:
For those who have died, especially Vince Jasenovski, the brother of Marlene Crofoot, and for all who mourn their passing, we pray
Loving God, you have chosen us in Christ Jesus and call us to continue his mission. Help us to live as your holy people and grant us the courage to respond to his call. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
