Prayers of the Faithful for November 3 & 4, 2018

Presider: Let us pray to God, the Father of compassion and author of love.


For the Church, that we may learn to love God and others so that the reign of God may draw near, we pray:

For all who are seeking God, that they may enter into a deep and loving relationship with God and know that they are a beloved child of God, we pray:

For love of neighbor: that the Spirit will guide and inspire us as we strive to love our neighbors as ourselves, particularly those with whom we find it hard to relate, we pray:

For faithful citizenship, that the Spirit will guide us in voting and give us insight into the candidates and issues on the ballot, we pray: 

For all who are grieving: that God will wipe away their tears and console them with God’s presence, we pray:

For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers. May they find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:

For those who have died, that God will fill them with life and give consolation and peace to those who grieve them, we pray:


Loving God, give us openness to your grace so that we may truly hear and listen to your word. Make of us your faithful servants and fill our hearts with your strength. We ask this in the name of Jesus, your Son. Amen
