Prayers of the Church, March 1, 2015

Lord God, you poured out your life on the cross for the sake of the world. Pour out your love through your church and make it a community of welcome and grace to all.

Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

Loving God, we ask your blessings for those who feel alone because of personal or professional problems or because their rights are not respected, we pray to the Lord.

Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

Prayers of the Church, February 22nd

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. A brief silence.

1) Lord Jesus, you called us to renounce evil and we remember today in this first Sunday of Lent that you were tried and tempted by the forces of evil. You choose service instead of fame and sacrifice instead of power. You set an example to follow by choosing the way of the Father. Grant us the strength to stand up against all that is evil and keep us firm in times of trial and temptation knowing that your support and love are always close at hand. Unite your church in proclaiming that in your family all are welcome, all are beloved, all are made whole. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer..
