Prayers of the People for Week of June 11

Prayers of the People
June 11, 2017

On this Trinity Sunday, let us pray with the confidence of God’s presence. As it says in John 5:14-15, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of Him.”

Holy God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we pray that your Church may always worship your Triune nature in unity. And give the Church such humility and compassion that, through its words and deeds, many may come to know and trust. Make this congregation a community to glorify your Name; to bind us together in your love; and to draw those who are far from you into your loving embrace. Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Holy God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we pray for direction in fulfilling you command to make disciples, baptizing in your Name, and teaching others to observe all you have commanded. Many of your servants are persecuted for doing those things. Keep them in your care; and keep them faithful, even when it would be easier to fall away. And we pray, also, that you would strengthen the lives of us who are not persecuted; so that we may not be a stumbling-block to those who do not yet believe. Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Holy God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you created this world and blessed it and called it good and entrusted it to us. Grant that we may use the bounties of the sea, land and air with wisdom and prudence. Give gentle and loving hearts to all who care for animals. Bless farmers and all who keep an anxious eye on everything that affects this beautiful planet. Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Holy God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we pray for the leaders of the nations that they would be stewards of authority, power, and decision-making. Shield and guide our military personnel, first responders, and all who are charged with defending life and liberty. Give them wisdom and integrity. And heal their bodies, minds and spirits from the shadows of violence and destruction. Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Holy God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, bless, heal, and comfort all who are are challenged by mind, body and spirit for all types of reasons. Raise them up from the dark valleys in which they wander; be their light and life, their guide and joy. And return them to the fellowship of all who love and pray for them. Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Holy God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we thank you for showing your mercy to those who have died trusting in your mighty promises. And bring us, through your great mercy, into your presence; so that we may sit at table with you; and speak with you and with the whole company of the redeemed; and may gaze upon your blessed countenance. Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Holy God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we thank and praise You for Your actions to create, redeem, and sanctify us. Hear our prayers and keep our eyes of faith fixed on You as the One Who is involved in every aspect of our lives. Amen
