Gracious God, fountain of all wisdom,

we pray for all Christian people;

for pastors, for all Christian leaders,

and for those who teach and guard the faith …

May the word of Christ dwell richly in our hearts,

and knit us together in the bond of your love.

Hear us.

Hear us, good Lord.

We pray for the leaders of the nations,

and for those in authority under them …

Give them the gift of your wisdom,

and a right discernment in all things.

Hear us.

Hear us, good Lord.

We pray for our … (city/town/village/community);

for those who live and work here,

and for those who visit this place …

Speak your word of peace in our midst,

and help us to serve one another as Christ has served us.

Hear us.

Hear us, good Lord.

We pray for those who do not believe,

and yet who long to know you, the very Word of life …

Open their ears to hear your voice,

and open their hearts to the knowledge

of your love in Christ.

Hear us.

Hear us, good Lord.

We pray for those bowed down with grief,

fear or sickness,

especially …

May your living Word bring comfort and healing

to all those in need.
Hear us.

Hear us, good Lord.

We give thanks for all those who have died in the

faith of Christ

and we rejoice with all your saints,

trusting in the promise of your word fulfilled.

Lord of life,

hear our prayer,
and make us one in heart and mind
to serve you with joy for ever.
Amen.

  1. What a lovely prayer! Indeed. Amen.

  2. Beautiful prayer.

    Thank you all for praying for my husband with the shingles in his eye. He going on the 6th week and is finally able to live a somewhat normal life. It’s still painful, but some pain meds have now helped. It’s so good to see him “on the move again.” I’m very thankful.

  3. Good to hear, Nonnie.
    Having exhausted all other possibilities to support myself, I’m going to apply for disability.
    I probably should have done so long ago.
    Prayers for wisdom navigating the process appreciated.

  4. Good luck Michael. That’s a big step. I hope it works out well and you’re approved the first time. And I hope the approval process goes quickly.
