Prayers of the Faithful for March 3 & 4, 2018
God reveals to us the paths of righteousness. With confident hearts, we bring to God our prayers.
For the Church: may we grow in awareness of our dignity as temples of the Holy Spirit, we pray:
For world governments: may they commit themselves to justice for the poor and fair treatment for the vulnerable, we pray:
For an end to violence: that God will inspire and give wisdom to all the leaders of our nation as they develop policies for protecting children and promote the common good, we pray:
For a deeper appreciation of the commandments: that we may allow the wisdom and vision of the commandments given to Moses, to form our conscience and guide our decisions, we pray:
For a cleansing of the temple of our hearts: that God will free us from all that enslaves us and help us to offer our self-sacrificing service to God and others, we pray:
For those who are ill and are suffering: may find hope and healing, including, Florence Larsgaard, we pray:
For those who have died: may they find rest in the arms of God, especially Carol Lietzau, the sister of Dennis Lamott , we pray:
Faithful God, you show us the path of true wisdom. Hear the prayers, spoken and unspoken, that we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
