Prayers of the People

In peace we pray to you, Lord God


For all people in their daily life and work;

For our families, friends, and neighbors, and those who are alone.

For this community, the nation, and the world;

For all who work for justice, freedom, and peace.

For the just and proper use of your creation;

For the victims of hunger, fear, injustice, and oppression.

For all who are in danger, sorrow, or any kind of trouble;

For those who minister to the sick, the friendless, and the needy.

For the peace and unity of the Church of God;

For all who proclaim the Gospel, and all those who seek the Truth.

For Michael our Presiding Bishop, and Marc our Bishop,

and for all bishops and other ministers;

For all who serve God and God’s Church

We pray to you also for the forgiveness of our sins.

Silence may be kept.

Have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; in you compassion forgive us our sins, known and unknown, things done and left undone; and so uphold us by your Spirit that we may love and serve you in newness of life, to the honor and glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
