Confident that God our light and our salvation hears us when we pray, let us offer our prayers for the church, the world, and all people in need.

 

A brief silence.

 

For those who speak your word throughout the church in the world, O God, and for educational institutions that prepare leaders, that you will lift up prophets in our congregations, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

For the works of God revealed in and through creation, for an end to pollution and unjust use of natural resources, and for good weather this season, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

For peace and justice throughout the world, for political leaders at all levels, and for those who provide public services, that you will grant them wisdom as they carry out their tasks, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

For the homeless, the unemployed, the underemployed, and their advocates; for the sick, the suffering, and their caregivers; and for the weak in body, mind, and spirit, that your compassion be felt by all in need, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

For those in our congregation celebrating special events, for those missing from our worship today, and for friends and family both near and far, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

For the gift of marriage and family, and especially for Donald and Lois Williams and Gilbert and Beverly Gallagher as they celebrate anniversaries, that they share many more years of life and love, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God. 

 


In thanksgiving for the faithful departed including those dear to us and the theologian Thomas Aquinas, whom the church commemorates today and all who witnessed your love in their lives and in this world, that through them our own faith will grow stronger, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

In silence we offer individual prayers. 

 

 

 

Merciful God, you hear our prayers even before we speak them. Receive them for the sake of the one through whom you have revealed your goodness, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

 

Amen.

For the church, its pastors, deacons, musicians, artists, teachers, seminarians, and all proclaimers of the gospel, that your gift of steadfast love and mercy will spread throughout the world, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

For the earth and all living creatures, for those preparing fields for planting, and for favorable weather, that all of us who care for this life will find voice to help creation thrive, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

For all rulers of the earth in local, regional, national, and international offices, and those without the power of official office, that they will be given the courage to work for the protection of all people and act as servants of all, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

For all who suffer this day: the sick and wounded, the grieving and brokenhearted, the hungry and exploited, those with malaria, and all who need our prayers, that they will be consoled and healed by health care workers, counselors, family, and friends, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

For those who gather in fellowship and festivities, for the ministries of our congregation in our community and throughout the world, that in all our service we see ourselves centered around Christ, let us pray.

 

Have mercy, O God.

 

 

 

In thanksgiving for those who have died in the faith and now sing praises around the throne of God, especially the loved ones of Cindy Valletta and William E, Dugan, and that we be assured of the promise of everlasting life, let us pray.  Have mercy, O God.

 

 

 

In silence we offer our own prayers and concerns.

 

 

 

Merciful God, you hear our prayers even before we speak them. Receive them for the sake of the one through whom you have revealed your goodness, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

 

Amen.
