    Prayers for January 29, 2023


    Called together to follow Jesus, we pray for the church, the world, and all in need.

     

    Lord God, you call us to remember your acts of mercy and to walk humbly with you.  Give us compassion to do the work of justice with love and compassion.  Bless the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  


    Merciful God (receive our prayer). 

     

    God of creation, the mountains and the hills bear witness to the beauty of all that you have made.  Give us the wisdom we need to act quickly and decisively in order to bring new life to our environment.  Bless the meek for they will inherit the earth.  


    Merciful God (receive our prayer). 

     

    God of comfort, our world cries out in pain.  Open the door for leaders to work towards reconciliation.  Be present with those who suffer the effects of war and persecution.  Bless the peacemakers for they will be called children of God.  


    Merciful God (receive our prayer). 

     

    God of love, heal the sick and give courage to the downtrodden.  Comfort those who mourn.  Be with those who are named on our prayer list and those we name in our hearts.  Bless those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they will be filled.  


    Merciful God (receive our prayer). 

     

    God of grace, we remember those who have gone before us who now rest from their labors.  Let us rejoice and be glad in the promise of salvation that we know through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Bless the pure in heart for they will see God.
