Prayers of the Faithful for June 27 & 28, 2015
Let us bring our needs to the God who calls us to deeper faith and new life.
For the Church: that all members may continue to grow in faith that leads to action, we pray:
For all who have died by violence, particularly those in the church shooting in South Carolina: that God will turn hearts from violence and help everyone to come to a new appreciation of human life, we pray:
For all who have been marginalized by society: that God will heal their spirits and help them to know their dignity as children of God, we pray:
For the Risen Savior youth, as they leave for their mission trip: that God will guide them safely on their journey, help them to learn from those they visit, and to use their gifts fully for those they serve, we pray:
For growth in our faith: that we may trust God’s love and care for us as we face challenges in our lives, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, especially, Erlinda Dilan, may they find comfort and healing, through God’s love, we pray:
For those who have died, may they be forever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:
Gracious God, you sent your divine Son to heal us of all that keeps us from you; hear our prayers that our faith may increase and one day we may share everlasting life with you. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
