Good Morning, 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”.
Loving Creator, we join with others as we pray for Our Bienestar partners involved in the Nelson United Church outreach project in Guatemala, 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.
All affected by COVID-19, whether in body, mind or spirit. We continue to recognize and pray for LGBTQ2SIA+ people who are persecuted in many countries.
We pray for the future of our environment; protecting and respecting this gift of creation. In our Pacific Mountain Regional Prayer Cycle we pray for Whitehorse United Church. And in our World Council of Churches Ecumenical Prayer Cycle, we pray today for the peoples of Ghana and Nigeria. God of All Creation… Hear our Prayers.
Today, we especially voice our heartfelt concerns those we love who are sad, or facing bad news, grieving, or unwell. In our prayers, we name all those on our Prayer List… Let us take a moment to name those who are also in need of our prayers this morning by naming them aloud or silently at this time… …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.
