Prayers of the Faithful for February 8 & 9, 2020


We make known our needs to God, that we might be faithful disciples who are salt of the earth and light for the world:


For all members of the church, may we always be a light shining forth, leading others out of darkness into the Light of the World, we pray:

For Light for all world leaders: that God will help all world leaders to see the value and dignity of human life and work tirelessly for peace, we pray:

For those caught in the distress of darkness and alienation, may they be led by our good deeds to the light of Christ, we pray:

For the Light of Justice: that the burden and pain of those who suffer unjustly may be lifted and that God’s saving mercy may free them to live life fully, we pray:

For growth in prayer: that we may patiently await God’s word in the silence of our hearts and reflect upon all that God has done for us, we pray:

For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including, Bethany DeMaster, Dianne Harrison, Margaret Hermeling, and Barbara Dombekk. May all who suffer be healed by God’s loving touch and by the prayers of this community, we pray:

For all who have died, may they be gathered to the Lord and experience the fullness of light and salvation in Christ, we pray:


God of light, you send Jesus to bring salvation to all people. Hear our prayers that one day we might live in your eternal Light. We pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
