Prayers of the Faithful for October 27 & 28, 2018
God hears the prayers of those who cry in faith for their needs. With courage we make our needs known.
For all members of the church, may their faith draw them confidently to Jesus, we pray:
For all who are searching for God: that their eyes and hearts may be opened to the many manifestations of God’s love for them, we pray:
For all who are blinded by fear and prejudice: that God will enlighten their hearts and help them recognize the value and dignity of each person, we pray:
For greater trust in times of difficulty: that we may be sustained by God’s promise to be with us always, to console us and to lead us home, we pray:
For each of us gathered here, that we may hear Jesus’ call to serve each other and our community with our gifts of time, talent, and treasure, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including, Diane Sparrow and Bob Zwaschka. May all who suffer be healed by God’s loving touch and by the prayers of this community, we pray:
For those who have died, especially, Gene Hoy the husband of Nancy Hoy; James Hamilton, the husband of Carolyn Hamilton; and for those who mourn the death of a loved one. May they be comforted by God’s unending love, we pray:
Gracious God, you hear the prayers of those who cry out to you: in our need may we have confidence that our prayers are heard and answered. We pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
