Prayers of the Faithful for October 29 & 30, 2016
Let us make our needs known to the God who seeks us and saves us.
For the Church: that all members continually open themselves to encounters with Jesus and his transforming love, we pray:
For the grace to risk all for Christ: that we may risk popularity and pride to connect with Christ in our lives, we pray:
For the grace to be instruments of mercy: that we may help feed the hungry and work to bring clean water to all who are in need, we pray:
For the ability to forgive: that we may show ourselves as children of God through forgiving those who have wronged us and reaching out to them with concern and kindness, we pray:
For generous hearts, that the Spirit will move us to respond with financial support for our parish so that we may continue the many good works and services at Risen Savior, we pray:
For the gift of joy: that we may rejoice as we experience Jesus with us on our life journey, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including, Verlyn Larson, Robert McDonald, Fr. Jim Gorman, Doug Vetter, Jerome Munch, Collen Greeley. May God’s healing love touch them and restore them to fullness of life, we pray:
For those who have died especially, Francis Lair, the husband of Dorothy Lair; Ron Diger, the husband of Cindy Diger. May all who have died be forever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:
Saving God, you sent your divine Son to seek and save the lost. Hear our prayers that one day we might enter into the joy of everlasting life with you. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
