Prayer Requests

Grace flows in abundance from the glory of your throne, loving God. Yet we choose to deny, to reject, to follow our own path; never imagining that the life of the demanding call could so completely eclipse the mediocrity of a life of our own creation. Forgive our unbelief, wash away the stain of our sin, open our eyes to the new life that we can have, if only we deny our own will and submit completely to your will. Show us the places in our lives that we resist your hand, shaping and molding us to your use. Soften us, that we may bend to your purposes, Master Potter.

We lift the following concerns to your care:

Easter Prayer

For the love that endures all suffering, we celebrate with Alleluias!

For the sunrise after the darkest night, we celebrate with Alleluias!

For the hope that lives when all hope is lost, we celebrate with Alleluias!

For the courage that accompanies us into the darkest grave, we celebrate with Alleluias!

For the resurrection that comes after the final hour, we celebrate with Alleluias!

For the life that is beyond any deserving, we celebrate with Alleluias!

This day, let the Alleluias keep us ever mindful of the gracious gift greater than any gift, the love greater than any love, the light brighter than any light, the deepest hope of all hopes, the abundant life beyond all life, of the resurrected Christ alive in the world!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Living out of bounds

Praying for all those in our society who are living out of bounds.

For the homeless men and women who have chosen to set up camp under freeway bridges, parks, in abandoned vehicles, vacant buildings, and church benches. We wonder why, on the coldest nights of winter, can't they see that even a stiff cot in a shelter is better than this? But with the eyes of compassion, help us know that while we may not understand the fear or anxiety that keeps them out in the cold, we can lift our prayer, that in your mercy you protect and shield them, that they are healed and in time come in from the cold.

For immigrants who are uncertain of their future. Calm the anxiety that uncertainty brings, be a rock to cling to when the current is pulling us down. Give clarity and direction, that each day some action may be taken to enact justice for all peoples of the world.

For those who are living secret lives. Let our compassion be a salve to the shame and humiliation that has caused them to hide from the world. Look mercifully upon the parts of our own lives that we wish to hide from the world. Heal us and make us whole.

For prisoners and parolees, be a calming presence in their lives as they negotiate each day. Bring wisdom to our nation, to find ways to protect those who are in custody, and to offer hope for a second chance when their time is done. Bless officers and families, for they are in prison, too. Amen.
