Lenten Prayers from Episcopal Relief and Development

Today We Pray For:

Intercessions at the Prayers

We pray for all first responders and healthcare workers.

We pray for our religious and civic leaders, and those around the world, that they may act with wisdom and prudence in guiding their people during troubling times.

We pray for the holy catholic church, for our local congregation, and all congregations who are sharing in worship. We pray for the Diocese staff and the staff of all our offices and schools.

We pray for our Altar Guilds, and Worship Leaders. We pray for community and lay leadership as they work towards fulfilling our commission of love and peace in action.

For all those affected by natural disasters, who have lost their homes, livelihoods, and comfort; and for those who minister to them and work towards their recovery. For those affected by human conflict and cruelty, that they may find safety, healing, and peace.

For those who travel. For good weather, and safety by land, sea, and air.

For all parents, teachers, students, school staff, bus drivers, and volunteers, that all may be safe during their school times and transport.

For the repose of the souls of all who have died, and the peace of their families.

Bless all whose lives are closely linked with ours, and grant that we may serve Christ in them, and love one another as he loves us.

For our military at home and deployed.

We offer thanksgiving for all our blessings:

For everyone celebrating a Birthday.

For everyone celebrating a Wedding Anniversary.
