Prayers of the People
In peace, we pray to you, Lord God. Silence
For all people in their daily life and work;
For our families, friends, and neighbors, and for those who are alone.
For this community, the nation, and the world;
For all who work for justice, freedom and peace.
For the just and proper use of your creation;
For the victims of hunger, fear, injustice and oppression.
For all who are in danger, sorrow, or any kind of trouble;
For those who minister to the sick the friendless, and the needy.
For the peace and unity of the Church of God;
For all who proclaim the Gospel, and all who seek for Truth.
For our Bishops, Priests, Deacons and Laity;
For all who serve God in his Church.
For the special needs and concerns of this congregation. Silence
Hear us, Lord;
For your mercy is great.
We thank you, Lord, for all the blessings of life; Silence
We will exalt you, O God our King;
And praise your name for ever and ever.
We pray for all who have died that they may have a place in your eternal kingdom. Silence

Lord, let your loving-kindness be upon them; Who put their trust in you.
Almighty God, have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen.
