Prayers of the Faithful for January 13 & 14, 2018


We entrust the Father with our lives and needs in the same hope as Samuel and the first apostles.


For the Church: that we may introduce others to Christ and invite them to join us on our journey, we pray:

For leaders throughout the world who are not blind and deaf to the needs of the poor and marginalized, we pray:

For peace: that God will turns hearts from violence and terrorism and heal all who have been wounded, we pray:

For Christian Unity: that God will establish greater understanding and cooperation within the Body of Christ so that all Christians may together announce God’s love and forgiveness, and work together to confront evil and injustice, we pray:

For the grace of recognition: that our hearts may perceive the words, deeds, and experiences that reveal God’s dwelling within us, we pray:

For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including, Florence Smid. 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 and for all who mourn their passing, we pray:


Faithful God, you know our weaknesses, yet you never tire of calling us to walk at your side. Graciously answer the prayers we make through Christ Jesus our Lord.
