Prayers of the People | August 17

Let us pray.

Loving, Gracious, and Merciful God, we are mindful today of your presence. You never tire of doing good, and you are faithful to your promises. We look to the coming of your Reign. We wait in eager expectation, watching for what you have in store for your people.

Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer
.

Heavenly Father, you have filled our hearts to the point of overflowing. We are a people marked by your goodness, loving kindness, and rich grace. Let us not be silent, let us not shrink back, but rather speak with boldness the good things you have done for us, and are doing in our midst. Let us not grow tired of telling those we meet of your endless love, showing love to all.

Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer

At this time we desire to hold in our minds and hearts the various ministries of SBT. We pray for all those engaged in ministry and mission in their daily jobs. Specifically, we lift up Alison Chubb, in her chaplaincy work at St. John’s College. We pray for Aaron Peterson, working with Siloam Mission. And we are thankful for our pastor and priest, Jamie Howison.

Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer

Please make us mindful of those who are sick or suffering, alone or isolated, or who have other needs and challenges. At this time we pause to say aloud the names of those you have placed on our hearts, and commit them to your goodness. “For these named aloud, those spoken in the silence of our hearts, and especially for those for whom we have forgotten to pray…” we ask for your love to surround them, we pray for your healing, comfort and peace.

Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer

We pray for your world, knowing that all is not as it should be. We ask for your intervention. Where there is strife, we pray for your reconciliation. For those who hunger and thirst, we pray you would provide. May we join you in building your Kingdom here on earth.

Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer

Loving God. We entrust these our prayers to you—both those spoken aloud and in the quiet of our hearts—knowing that you are at work and are faithful to bring about the good things you desire, to the glory of Jesus Christ.

Amen.
