Prayers of the Faithful September 19 & 20, 2020
Presider: Let us pray now for our own needs and those of one another.
- For the church: that we may humbly accept God’s gift of salvation and recognize that every day is God’s gift to us, we pray:
- For all who are seeking God: that the Spirit of God will lead them into an encounter with God and open them to God’s presence and action in their lives, we pray:
- For freedom from envy: that we may appreciate the gifts and blessings that others receive and rejoice in their success, we pray:
- For all who are working to aid those in need, particularly firefighters and rescue workers: that God will give them strength, wisdom, and protection from harm, we pray:
- For our community, the Church of the Risen Savior, as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary as a parish: may God bless us with overwhelming grace as we move forward together towards the future, we pray:
- For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including: Randy Bedard, Dennis Eich, and Rosanne Kouva. May they find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
- For all who have died, especially Adam Ressler; we also pray for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. May God fill them with life and give consolation and peace to those who grieve them, we pray:
Gracious God, you show us that there is more to life than we can ever imagine. Help us to see with your eyes and treat one another with your love and generosity. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
