The Prayers of the People

 

22nd Sunday after Pentecost ~ November 10, 2019

 

 

Priest: Let us pray in the name of Jesus Christ to our heavenly Father for the church, our parish, our nation, the world, and one another.

Heavenly Father, we stand awestruck in your presence. We believe that your Spirit abides among us. We believe that, in a little while, you will shake all nations and draw all the good things of the earth into your realm. And so we give you thanks for all your blessings. We are grateful especially for _______ [Pause for thanksgivings to be spoken.]

Loving One, help us to hold fast to your truth,

People: and be filled with hope.

By the power of your Spirit, give your Church such words and wisdom that your enemies may neither withstand nor contradict its witness. Help it to stand firm and hold fast to the truths that have been passed down from generation to generation either by scripture or the tradition and wisdom of our forebears. Give it endurance; diligence in service; and joyful hope. We pray for Justin, the Archbishop of Canterbury; our Presiding Bishop, Michael; our Bishop, Michael; our Assisting Bishop, Craig; and our priest, Lin. In the Anglican Communion, we pray for the Lusitanian Church in Portugal, The Rt. Rev. Jorge Piña Cabral, Bishop. In our Diocese, we remember all Lay Liturgical Ministers.

Loving One, help us to hold fast to your truth,

People: and be filled with hope.

 

We pray for the people and the mission of this congregation. Keep us watchful, faithful, and brave. Keep our minds, hearts, lips, eyes and hands focused on speaking and doing your will. Make us selfless and generous stewards for the upbuilding of your Kingdom. Help us to speak and act with compassion and kindness because we do not know what burdens are borne by those around us.

Loving One, help us to hold fast to your truth,

People: and be filled with hope.

Wars and rumors of wars, persecution and injustice, and natural disasters made worse by human sinfulness afflict the world and our country. Teach your laws and statutes to the world’s rulers and our nation's leaders, so that their hearts may be turned to care for their people. We pray for Donald, our President; Greg, our Governor, and Dee, our Mayor. We pray also for the United States Congress and all members of the Judiciary that they may legislate with compassion and judge with prudence.

Loving One, help us to hold fast to your truth,

People: and be filled with hope.

 

Be merciful to everyone who has been assaulted by the powers of sin, death, and evil, and who cry out for help. Help all Christians to speak and live the Gospel so clearly that even those most estranged from you might take heart, turn back, and lift up their heads to see your promised redemption.

Loving One, help us to hold fast to your truth,

People: and be filled with hope.

Merciful God, you are near to those who call upon you. You hear the cry of those who suffer and help them. We pray for the injured, sick and dying; for immigrants and refugees; for the handicapped and addicted; and for all who have none to care for them in their time of greatest need. Most especially we pray for:  ____ [*Contact Rev. Lin for the list of this week's names and intercessions]. Grant that the Sun of Righteousness, our Savior Christ, should rise upon them with healing wings; and give them the joy of your saving help.

Loving One, help us to hold fast to your truth,

People: and be filled with hope.

Almighty and gracious Father, those who have died trusting in you already sing songs of exultation and victory. They are like angels, children of God, and children of the resurrection. We thank you for fulfilling your promises to them and we pray for our loved ones who have died:  _____ [*Contact Rev. Lin for the list of this week's names and intercessions]Bring us, with all the redeemed, into the glorious light of your presence. There, healed from sin and sorrow, grant us the priceless gift of rejoicing in your great love forever.

Loving One, help us to hold fast to your truth,

People: and be filled with hope.

Priest: In the power of the Holy Spirit, we entrust our prayers and petitions to you, gracious Father, for the sake of your beloved, Christ our Redeemer. Amen.
