LET US, GOD’S PEOPLE, PRAY
Leader: ~ O Lord in our midst, You call us by name to awaken our souls to Your presence. Keep us from wandering, forget our iniquities, and bring us to You in the time of healing and good.
~ O Lord in our midst, as our hope and our strength are set on You, grant us the fortitude to challenge all leaders in governments across this Planet, to work together to achieve the health of our Earth and the peace of living together in unity. We pray especially for: add your own petitions
~ O Lord in our midst, free the hearts bowed down in grief, as our loved ones now dwell in the loveliness of Your heavenly house forever. We pray especially for… add your own petitions
The Celebrant adds: Living, Loving Lord, sustain us in our struggle to live humbly in Your sight, to free ourselves from the sin of self-promotion, and to set our hearts on the pilgrim’s way. We ask through Christ Jesus, our Savior; and the Holy Spirit, our Advocate; who together with You are One God in Glory, forever and ever. Amen.
