Prayers of the Faithful for Sept. 30 & Oct. 1, 2017
Presider: In humble trust, we place our needs before God.
For the Church: that we may put on the attitude of Christ and empty ourselves into God’s loving care and the service of others, we pray:
For discernment: that the Spirit will give us insight and understanding so that we may discern God’s will and follow the path of life, we pray:
For a healing of our attitudes: that God will free us from the control of pride, selfishness and glory, and help us to serve others with love, patience, and humility, we pray:
For all who serve in difficult and distant places particularly relief workers and members of the military: that God will guide their service and bring them home safely to their families, we pray:
For Peace: that God will touch the hearts and minds of world leaders and help them to dialogue seriously and effectively to resolve disputes, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including: Bonnie Reichstadt, Madelene McDonald, Noella Carrier, Mary Menke, Ray Hanson, Lemmy Decario, Mary Koenig, Lito Sy. May they find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
For all who have died, that God will fill them with life and give consolation and peace to those who grieve them, we pray:
Gracious God, you call us to be faithful in carrying out your divine will. Hear our prayers that one day we might share in the fullness of life you offer those who dwell in your kingdom. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
