Prayers of the People: September 16

Published on Sep 17th, 2018 by Member of Congregation | 0

Today we pray and rejoice together in the wonder of God’s love for all creation. God who is in all, and through all, who is everything; creating all life, moving through all breath, we praise you for always being strong, whole, eternal,  Almighty, and, as we bring our praises, we realize just how small we are. When you hear the words, God of All Creation, please respond with “Hear our Prayers”.

We pray for those seeking to safeguard creation, we pray for organizations working for a fairer world, we pray for charities helping those most in need, we pray for people we know in our community helping others,  we thank them. God of All Creation…      “Hear our Prayers.”

As we come with such weighty and difficult issues, before you our Father and our Friend,  we pray today for our own hearts and for those we love who are sad, or facing bad news, grieving, or unwell.  In our prayers we name all those on our Prayer List. In the silence now we think of the prayers for those closest to us, who we mention now or hold silently in our hearts…    …God of All Creation…      “Hear our Prayers.”

CaringGod, in our Kootenay Presbytery Prayer Roster, we pray for Rev. Sunny Kim and the congregation of Kimberley United Church.  We pray for our brothers & sisters at Nyanyadzi Methodist Church in Zimbabwe, Peacemakers and peacekeepers, health care workers, teachers, engineers and the many who serve throughout the world through many organizations.

Let us give thanks to our Creator for the Creator is always with us.
God is with us in the call of a loon and in the flight of an eagle.
Our Creator is with us in the changing of the seasons.
God is with us when we gather together and when we are alone.
Our Creator is with us in our giftedness and in our search for new understandings of ourselves,
new visions of our communities.

Let us give thanks to God, our Creator. God of All Creation…      “Hear our Prayers.”

Amen.
