Prayers of the Faithful January 13 & 14


We entrust the Father with our lives and needs in the same hope as Samuel and the first apostles.


  • For the Church: that we may introduce others to Christ through virtuous lives, loving deeds, and truthful words, we pray:
  • For all who are discerning their life’s calling: that they, like Samuel, may say: “Speak Lord, your servant is listening” and offer their gifts and talents for the glory of God and the service of others, we pray:
  • For the healing of the human family: that the Spirit of God will heal the wounds of prejudice and racism, and build communities of trust and justice we pray:
  • For Christian Unity: that we who are the Temple of God and Body of Christ may grow in our understanding of each other and cooperate in announcing God’s love and forgiveness as we work to overcome evil and injustice we pray:
  • For all who are bound by addictions: that God will free them from that which holds them, and guide them into the freedom that comes with being a child of God, we pray:
  • For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including: Sonia Wachendorf, Steve Eischen, Joseph Andreszcuk, Richard Garner, and Mary Halverson, that they may they find comfort in the healing touch of God and in the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
  • For those who have died with a faith in the resurrection. We pray:     


Faithful God, you know our weaknesses, yet you never tire of calling us to walk at your side. Graciously answer the prayers we make through Christ Jesus our Lord. AMEN
