Prayers of the Church, Maundy Thursday, April 2nd

As we enter these Holy Days, together let us pray for the church, those in need, and all of God's creation.

Lord, let us rememeber the heart of the Maundy Thursday liturgy that Jesus has commanded us to love one another.  As Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, wer are called to follow his example as we humbly care for one another, especially the poor and the unloved..  Hear us, O God.  Your mercy is great.

Led by Christ in our journey of repentance and moved by his compassion let us pray for the church, those in need and all of God's creation.

Let us pray for all the baptized people of God, so that strengthened by the disciplines of lent we may find life where there is death, freedom where is bondage, and light where is darkness.  Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Led by Christ in our journey of repentance and moved by his compassion, let us pray for the church, those in need, and all of God’s creation.

Holy God, as we remember Jesus’s 40 day journey we also remember the journey of our lives. We know that we have not always turned away the devil’s temptations as
Jesus did. We ask your forgiveness and pray that you will continue to walk with us as every day we come closer to the
end of our journey. Lord, in your mercy.

Prayers of the Church, March 15, 2015

We thank you God for the perpetual love and forgiveness you show to us each and every day.

We ask you God to watch over our youth as they go out into the world and share your word. We ask you to help them make smart choices benefiting themselves and those around them.

Prayers of the Church, March 8, 2015

Almighty Lord, you have given us your laws to live by. We try so very hard to do right by them, but we fail daily. Yet you continue to forgive us and grant us your grace. We know we do not have to do anything to receive this loving gift. It is not easy to understand this kind of love. May we at least try to love others as you love us, Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Father of all, Lent is upon us as we journey to the cross. Help us to feel you by our side, help us to daily reflect on the selfless love that you give to us and help us to see and feel your sacrifice for us so that we may honor You in our habits, in our speech and in our choices. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
