Prayers of Intersession 9/24/17

Open to the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we pray for the church, the world, and all of God’s creation. (A brief silence.) Let us pray for the church and its ministry. Unite us in one Spirit, striving side by side with one mind for the faith of the gospel. Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.

God, you provide for all our needs. We pray for those who are homeless, jobless, or hopeless. We pray for those who are forgotten, ignored, or isolated. We pray for all in any need. We pray for Jim, Sara, Roger, Linda, Pat, Richard, Sara, Dean, Matthew, Kevin, Aaron, Marsha, Matthew, Shirley, Elizabeth, Erich, Karen, Betty, Shirley, Linda, and Dan. Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.

Oh God, free your people from the chains that bind. Help us to do the hard work of the heart.  We give thanks for our Rummage sale. Now may the resources we collect pay forward the work of your kingdom. We pray for Lutheran World relief and our School supply collection. We pray for the Always Reformed, Always Reforming process. May our insights be food for thought and give strength for mission. We pray for those who pick up where the disaster of Hurricanes have left.  Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.

We pray for Jerusalem, every city and town, and every country for those who dwell in them in faith and in reverence of God, and for their peace and security,

Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.

For the people of Israel and Palestine, and all people living in the midst of conflicts and wars, that they might know the peace that is your gift and your will, for all who work for a just peace, Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.

For those who bear fruit and do good work in God’s holy churches, for those who remember the poor, the widows, the orphans, the strangers, the refugees and the needy; and for those who have charged us to remember them in our prayers,

Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.

For all Christians throughout the world, who have been united in one Spirit and called to live in unity, may the Holy Spirit empower us to commit ourselves to seeking and showing the unity of the body of Christ and with our gifts to care for one another in the bond of peace. Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.

Into your hands, gracious God, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting the power of Christ and the gifts of the Spirit. Amen.
