Prayers of the People | March 25

Almighty and merciful God, we pray for the Church in every place throughout the world. We trust in your promise to make a new covenant with your people. Thank you, Lord, for leading with unfailing love and faithfulness, all who keep your covenant. Have mercy on us, and write your law on our hearts.

 

Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

 

God of reconciliation, work in us with your abiding presence; cleanse our hearts with your everlasting truth. Make us to know your ways fully and deeply, O Lord; teach us your paths and fit us to be your people, so that from the least of us to the greatest, all will know you, love you, and seek your peace.

 

Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

 

When we are sick and far from you, merciful God, your steadfast love endures forever. When we cry to you in our trouble, you save us from our distress. You forgive us and remember our sin no more. Make yourself known to all who are anxious and needful; help us to put our whole trust in you.

 

We lift up by name those known to us.

Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

 

Grant a peaceful end and eternal rest to all who are dying, O God. Comfort we pray those who grieve, and encourage those who mourn.  Even amidst our sorrow, reveal to us the fullness of your promises.

 

Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

 

Amen.
