Prayers of the People | March 24

W

e pray for the church, for our brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the world. In the hour when darkness reigns –in Syria and Nigeria, In Pakistan and Iraq, in Malaysia and Indonesia — God, let your people know that your hour will come.

If you are willing, Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray for the world, God, for your creation and all peoples and nations. In the hour when darkness reigns, bind us together in love for all you have made, for all with which you have blessed and entrusted us.

If you are willing, Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray for the community, for the needs of those next to us in these pews, in this neighbourhood, and in this city. In the hour when darkness reigns, open our eyes and hearts to the needs of our neighbours, and bless we ask those whom we name aloud or in silence.

If you are willing, Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray for the dead, for those who have gone before us and left us, grieving. In thehour when darkness reigns, God, hear our lamentations, and comfort us.

If you are willing, Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Amen
