Prayers of the Faithful for June 24 & 25, 2017
We are confident to make our needs know to a God who cares for us.
For the Church: that we may live in the confident assurance of God’s abiding concern and providential care for us, we pray:
For the grace of freedom: that God will free our hearts from fear and anxiety so that we may respond with love and concern in whatever God asks of us, we pray:
For a new experience of grace and mercy in our lives: that God’s love will free us from our past failures, give us courage to make amends, and hope to begin again in our relationships, we pray:
For the grace to live in peace and harmony: that God will help us accept the differences in one another, understand the gifts that others bring, and give us patience as we strive to work together, we pray:
For the youth who leave for their mission trip to Montana on July 8; that God will guide them safely on their journey, help them to learn from those they visit, and to use their gifts fully for those they serve, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including Robert Reid. May they find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
For all who mourn the death of a loved one, may all who have died be forever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:
Good and Gracious God, strengthen us to rely on your care and love. Hear our prayers that we might one day rejoice without fear with you forever. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
