Prayers of the People | January 20

Now let us come into a time of prayer

 

 

Jesus is Lord.  We give thanks for your church, and for the many ways in gifts and service  the many chances we have to be your church.

 

Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

 

Jesus is Lord. Throughout the world, many people are in want: for war to cease, for peace in their homes and in their hearts, for the means to live. Break into every place with your spirit, Lord,  to sustain, to heal, and to guide all peoples and nations.

 

Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

 

Jesus is Lord. In our own neighbourhoods this night many are cold, hungry, or have lost their way. At this time we name to you, aloud or in our hearts, those whose needs we know. Inspire us with your wisdom and grace, to walk with those in need, and to speak the truths needful for reconciliation.

 

Lord, in your mercy,  Hear our prayer.

 

Jesus is Lord. We pray that you would breathe strength into those who mourn, and those who grieve losses of all kinds.  Be within them and among us the miracle of good wine, the wedding feast, and everlasting joy.

 

Lord, in your mercy,  Hear our prayer.

 

Amen
