Prayers of the Faithful for October 5 & 6, 2019
We are people seeking to deepen our faith, and so we pray for one another.
For the church: that it may be an authentic faith community in service to others, we pray:
For a vision of hope: that all who face violence, destruction, and chaos may be renewed by the Spirit of God and become a source of light and promise to others who are struggling, we pray:
For greater respect for human life: that the hearts of all may appreciate God’s gift of life from conception to natural death, we pray:
For all who are searching for meaning and value in their life: that they may experience God’s gentle invitations and recognize the goodness which God has in mind for them, we pray:
For the flowering of Faith: that we may grow in our reliance upon and loyalty to God in every area of our lives and relationships, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including, Timothy Klasell, may God’s healing love touch them and restore them to fullness of life, we pray:
For those who have died especially, Enzo Herrera. May all who have died be forever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:
God who speaks to our hearts, hear us when we pray for sustained or deepened faith. Give us the strength to serve and encourage others when our own faith is weak. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
