Prayer Time

Take time to ask for prayers (celebrations and concerns) from the group then you can either take turns praying for each other or use this prayer: 

 

Gracious and Saving God, you come to us when we think we are alone. You come to us in the middle of whatever storm is in our lives. You come to us, reminding us to have courage and to not be afraid. Help us to follow you where you lead even when it means leaving what seems safe. We give thanks for those who minister beside us especially Filadelfia Church, Pastora Adita and our partners in ministry in Lima, Peru; and for Joyful Life Lutheran Church, our fellow congregation in Magnolia, Texas.We ask you mercy and grace us as we hear you speak again, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
 
We pray for those who are preparing to return to school and work, and those for whom these involve difficult choices they must make. Bring wholeness, well-being and healing to those who suffer in body, mind, soul and spirit. We pray especially for (name the concerns mentioned in the group). We give thanks and praise for (name celebrations). Help us to recognize your presence and work in our lives and in the lives of those around us. Pour your ever flowing, ever abundant Spirit into our lives and your church. In the certain hope that nothing can separate us from your love, we offer these prayers to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
