Let us make our needs known to the God who seeks us and saves us.
For the Church: that all members continually open themselves to encounters with Jesus and his transforming love, we pray:
For the grace to risk all for Christ: that we may risk popularity and pride to connect with Christ in our lives, we pray:
For all who are burdened by fear and anxiety: that the Spirit will free them, help them to recognize that God is with them, and fill their hearts with peace, we pray:
For the ability to forgive: that we may show ourselves as children of God through forgiving those who have wronged us and reaching out to them with concern and kindness, we pray:
For the gift of joy: that we may rejoice as we experience Jesus with us on our life journey, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including, Dennis Ripley, Dorothy Ascheman, Bethany DeMaster, Jane Heil, Susan Reiter, Dan Morris, and Cindy Hlavac. May God’s healing love touch them and restore them to fullness of life, we pray:
For those who have died, may they be ever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:
Saving God, you sent your divine Son to seek and save the lost. Hear our prayers that one day we might enter into the joy of everlasting life with you. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
