Prayers of the Faithful – May 20 & 21, 2023
As we reflect on our responsibility to assume the work of the disciples, we pray for ourselves, for our neighbors and for the whole world.
- For the Church: that, empowered by the Spirit, we may faithfully give witness to the Gospel and continue Christ’s mission of bringing hope and healing to those in need, we pray:
- For all who spread the Good News: that God will inspire evangelists, missionaries, preachers, composers, and writers to dynamically announce God’s abiding presence and untiring love for all, we pray:
- For all students as they finish the school year: that God will protect them through the summer and help them to develop all their talents and abilities, we pray:
- For all who are fearful or anxious: that they may recognize God’s message, “Fear not”, is for them and allow God to calm their spirits and give them hope, we pray:
- For Hendrixx Todd Spiegel and Zachary Douglas Williams, who receive the sacrament of Baptism this morning, and for their family, that they may continue to grow in faith and that our parish continue to nurture their faith., we pray:
- That those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, find healing, including: Loretta Kelly, Cameron Howard Wendell, Grace Koleczek, Kathy Fastner, Douglas Solberg, and Michelle Groff, we pray:
- For those who have died, especially Jerry Zimmeth and David Thompson. May all who have died be forever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:
Gracious God, you sent your Son among us to show us the way to you. Grant us all that we need to continue to work in his name, so that all creatures may be one in you. We ask this in Jesus’ name, who lives with you forever and ever. Amen.
