Today We Pray for Healing:

Intercessions at the Prayers for the Week of May 8th

We pray for all first responders, healthcare workers, and those who are still in the workplace to keep our infrastructures going. We pray for those creating, distributing, and administering vaccines for the pandemic virus. For those who are working from home, and for those who are currently furloughed. For those who are returning to work or are active in reopening society safely.

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 peace in the world, and safety for all those who are in war zones, seeking refuge from war, in peacekeeping or military service.

We pray for the holy catholic church, for our local congregation, all congregations who are meeting remotely for worship, and those prayerfully beginning to worship in person again. 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 who travel. For good weather, and safety by land, sea, and air.

For the repose of the souls of all who have died, especially Jan Frederick, 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. We pray especially for: Abbie, Abby, Amy, Andrew, Betty, Bill, Blanche, Braelyn, Brittany, Caroline, Cathy, Charles, Fr.
