Prayers of the Faithful for January 28 & 29, 2017
We pray with confidence to a God who gives us every blessing.
For the Church: that we may be transformed by God’s Spirit and find our strength in Christ, we pray:
For the courage to be peacemakers in our homes, our cities, our nation, and across the world, we pray:
For the grace to be poor in Spirit: that we may recognize our poverty whenever God is not at the center of our life and decisions, we pray:
For all who are burdened by life, for refugees, the sick, and the unemployed: that God’s Word may reveal to them their blessedness and dignity, we pray:
For all who show mercy, for those who care for the sick and elderly, and for those who assist those who are in need: that the face and love of God may continue to shine through them, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including, Beverly Kraft, Leo Malson, Robert McDonald. May they experience God’s healing touch, we pray:
For all who have died and for those who mourn the loss of a loved one. May they find comfort in the loving arms of God, we pray:
God of blessings, you shower us with every good thing. Hear our prayers that one day we might enjoy the promised reward of everlasting life with you. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
