Prayers of the Faithful for December 27 & 28, 2014


Let us pray for the needs of the whole human family, for all families -- however and wherever they are -- and for those who are closest to us.


  1. For our families: that we honor those who gave us life and all those who cared for us, and for all families - both traditional and non-traditional; we pray:
  2. For immigrants and all workers in our country:  that they may earn a living wage and are able to provide affordable housing, food and health care for their families; we pray: 
  3. For those whose lives must be protected: that we honor the elderly, cherish the young and welcome new life to the world, we pray:
  4. For families torn apart by poverty and war: that refugees find a home, that the hungry are fed, all young people educated, the unemployed given mean­ingful work, and that nations may be at peace, we pray:
  5. For those who are ill and have asked us to pray for them, including: Karen Bauer, Joe Carlisano, Audrey Tichy, may they be blessed and healed in this coming new year, we pray:
  6. We remember those who have died, especially,  Rich Olsen, the husband of Judy Olsen,  and for all our beloved dead and the families that mourn their passing, we pray:


Good and gracious God, watch over and protect us and our homes. Strengthen the love which unites families in peace and joy. We pray always in Jesus' name. Amen.
