Prayers of the Faithful                            June 26 and 27, 2021

Presider: Let us bring our needs to the God who calls us to deeper faith and new life.


  • For the Church: that we, who are made in the image of God, may celebrate God’s gift of life to us and live it intentionally and with conviction, we pray:
  • For growth in our faith: that God will draw us into a deeper relationship, strengthen us in challenging times, and inspire us to be faithful disciples, we pray:
  • For the grace of generosity: that God will free our hearts to share from our abundance so that those who are struggling may experience God’s blessings, we pray:
  • For those in need of healing, particularly children and those with chronic conditions: that God will renew the gift of life within them and restore them to health and wholeness, we pray:
  • For all entrapped by loneliness or marginalization: that God’s love may break through their bonds and heal their deepest hurts, we pray:
  • For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, especially, Don and Karen Atkinson, Tom Diger, and Maria Brass (mother of Marianne Brass); may they find comfort and healing, through God’s love, we pray:
  • Today we pray for our beloved dead: Ward Kierski, Dale Schlichting and Paul Pfeifer, as well as those who have recently died, especially, Cliff Drentel Mark Juenemann , and Jean Lesmeister (sister of Marcia Woell and Stephen Dalseth). May God welcome them to new eternal life and ease the loss of those who grieve their passing, we pray:


Gracious God, you sent your divine Son to heal us of all that keeps us from you; hear our prayers that our faith may increase and one day we may share everlasting life with you. We pray this through Christ our Lord. Amen
