PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
Bulletin
The Sixth Sunday after Pentecost
July 17, 2022
WE HOLD THE FOLLOWING COMMUNITIES, MINISTRIES, AND PEOPLE IN PRAYER. During the Prayers of the People in our worship services we bring before God the needs of others and of ourselves. It is our privilege. It is our duty as followers of Jesus. We ask you to remember these requests before God through the week as well.
WE PRAY FOR OUR COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD
FOR THE PEOPLE OF UKRAINE
God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for those who fear for tomorrow: may your Spirit of comfort draw near to them and those whom they love.
We pray for those with power over war and peace: instill them with godly wisdom, discernment, and compassion.
We pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear: hold and protect them.
Most of all we pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.
All this we ask in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Amen.
FOR REFUGEES FROM WAR AND DANGER
Lord God, no one is a stranger to you, and no one is far from your loving care. In your kindness, watch over victims and refugees of war; those fleeing their homes and communities; and those separated from their loved ones. Be present with those who find themselves lost in chaos and confusion: grant them rescue, shelter, and answers. Have mercy upon your children and bring them back safely to the place where they long to be. Inspire us to show your kindness to strangers and to all in need. We ask this in the name of Christ who was a refugee from danger. Amen.
FOR OUR LEADERS
We pray for Joseph, our president. We pray for the leaders of the nations around the globe, and we pray for those in authority under them. Give them the gift of your wisdom, and a right discernment in all things.
