With trust in God’s goodness, let us bring our petitions before the Lord, our salvation.
For the church throughout the world, may it be purified in the refining fire of God’s love so as to shine brightly as a light for all to see, we pray:
For loved ones with whom we spend our lives: for the old ones to whom we owe our respect and gratitude; and for the young ones who are the delight of our present days and hope for the future, we pray:
For those who struggle: for those living with depression, anxiety, addiction, chronic illness or pain; and for those who care for them, we pray:
For our sister parish in Haiti, may their suffering and burdens be eased and their faith made strong so that they have confidence and trust in God’s care, we pray:
For all gathered here, may our eyes be opened to Christ in our midst as we seek to serve him in the least of our brothers and sisters, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including, Marsha Ruwe, Tom Diger, Marian Godwin, Bethany DeMaster, Dianne Harrison, Margaret Hermeling, and Barbara Dombekk. May they and all who are sick find health and comfort, we pray:
For all who have died, may they be gathered to the Lord and experience the fullness of light and salvation in Christ, we pray:
God of light and glory, you send Jesus to bring salvation to all people. Hear our prayers that one day we might live in your eternal Light. We pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
