We now bring our needs and the needs of the whole world to God who is kind and merciful.
For the Church: that we may rely upon God’s love for us when we experience trials and adversity, we pray:
For a deeper awareness: that we may recognize and be attentive to God’s presence with us each day in every aspect of our lives, we pray:
For the poor, and for those who are persecuted because of their faith, we pray:
For those preparing for the Easter sacraments and the life changes they bring, we pray:
For all God’s people on this Lenten pilgrimage, especially our community of Risen Savior: may we be renewed in wisdom. charity, faith, and hope; and so, like the fig tree, bear great fruit; we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including Stacy Crawford and John Gieske . May all who suffer be healed by God’s loving care, we pray:
For those who have died; may they and all who have gone to their rest know the joy of the resurrection, we pray:
Just and merciful God, you know and love us as the imperfect people we are. Grant us awareness, humility, and gratitude as we ponder our sinfulness and your constant call to repentance. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
