We entrust into your unfailing care, Merciful God...
Those for whom our prayers have been requested: Lei Kui, Sandy, Kirk, Art, Phyllis, Louis, Chris, Scott, David, Ella, Merry Ann, Matthew, Larry, Dean, Diane, Bill, and Tim.
Our nation and the world: the President, Congress, and Supreme Court; our Governor, Mayor, and the leaders of the communities from which we come; members of our military at home and abroad; for all those elected or appointed to positions of public trust, and, for peace throughout our world, especially, in Ukraine and South Sudan;
With thanksgiving: our health care professionals, first responders, essential workers, and farmworkers; and,
Those who have died, especially those whom we love but see no longer.
Almighty and eternal God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth: Mercifully accept the prayers of your people, and strengthen us to do your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
