Prayers of the People | July 15

Thank you for the church universal. Thank you for taking what bit of faith and love can be found in each of us, and uniting it into something beautiful. Make your church a reflection of you.

 

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

 

Thank you for this world. Thank you for entrusting to our care your gifts of fire, earth, water, and air. Make us worthy caretakers of the created world and of the societies in which we live.

 

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

 

Thank you for this community. Thank you for the ways in which you connect, inspire, challenge, and whisper to people. Make us mindful of the needs of others, especially of the people we name to you aloud: ___________.

 

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

 

Thank you for giving us life abundant. In life and in death, hold us close to your heart and make us your own.

 

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.  Amen.
