Prayers of the Faithful for July 11 & 12, 2015
We are sent to continue Jesus’ ministry; and so we pray for all those he loves here and throughout the whole world.
For the Church: that we may each bring forth the reign of God in our lives, our work and our relationships, we pray:
For all bishops, successors to the Apostles, especially for Archbishop Bernard Hebda: that God will strengthen and inspire them as they guide the church in fulfilling its mission of proclaiming forgiveness, healing and truth, we pray:
For those who are homeless because of war, injustice or adversity; for refugees and for those who work to provide for their needs, we pray:
For farmers, gardeners and all who work the land; may God provide good weather for an abundant harvest, we pray:
For wisdom: that we may face questions and rejection confidently as we follow God’s call in our lives, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including Joe Gieselman, Bill Nord. May they find comfort and healing, through God’s love, we pray:
For those who have died, especially Sylvia Conrad; Mary Domek the sister of Tom Theis, and for all who mourn their passing, we pray:
Loving God, you have chosen us in Christ Jesus and call us to continue his mission. Help us to live as your holy people and grant us the courage to respond to his call. We ask these things in his name, so that we may live in praise of your glory. Amen.
