Prayers of the Faithful for June 28 & 29, 2014
Reminded of God’s steadfast love through the preaching of the Apostles, we rejoice and offer our prayers.
- For the Church: that we, like Peter and Paul, may allow God to work through our weaknesses and to transform us by the Holy Spirit, we pray:
- For Christian Unity: that God’s Spirit will lead us along new paths to overcome our differences and unite us in confronting evil and injustice, we pray:
- For a renewed relationship with Jesus: that we may profess in word and deed that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God, we pray:
- For the grace of perseverance: that God will strengthen us and give us courage as we encounter obstacles and opposition, we pray:
- For a renewal of prayer: that God will teach us to pray and help us to never give up in the face of adversity, we pray:
- For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including Dennis Fastener, Ruth Olberding, and Richard Olsen. May God be comfort, and healing for all who suffer, we pray:
- For all who have gone to their rest with faith in the resurrection, especially Bill Rezmerski, the husband of Cathy Rezmerski; and for all who mourn their passing, we pray:
Gracious Lord, the communion we bear with the Apostles Peter and Paul inspires
us to lives of service and love for the sake of the Gospel. Hear our prayers and
answer them according to your will. Through Christ our Lord.
