Sunday Prayer

Gracious and Loving God, we thank you for this day and for all the blessing in it. We thank you for the changing seasons and the blaze of colour that the turning leaves paint across the landscape. We thank you for the gift of creation, and we pray for your Spirit’s guidance as we try to be good stewards of its beauty and resources.

We thank you for all of the questions and challenges of our faith, for they lead us to a deeper, more meaningful, life in the spirit. You invite us to follow the way of Jesus – to travel the path that he has set before us in scripture. We pray, guide us on that path, and send us out as agents of your love and justice in the world.

God of us all, we pray for the needs of our friends and families and faith community.
Bless all who are in pain, or struggling with ill health, as well as those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Bless anyone who is lonely, or hurting or bearing a long held wound that is getting in the way of life's fullness and abundance.

Bless your people everywhere, O God, and guide us toward peace in our time. Amen.

  1. Thank you for the beautiful prayer to start my day. An extra hour of sleep and I'm ready, sermon done. Long day ahead including a bowling party with our 7-12 graders from 6pm -8pm....

    May all of you have a glorious Sunday.

  2. Amen, Lord.
    Thank you Sue for this prayer.
    And I am with mompriest,I am thankful for the extra hour of sleep also.

  3. Sue, Thank you so much for the prayer. Somehow I always need to be reminded that I am an agent of God's love and justice to everyone. I will be dealing with a difficult person later today - you have just made it easier for me.

    Blessings to all on this beautiful Sunday!

  4. Thank you, blessed Lord, for the beauty around us. As the seasons grow cooler and Advent approaches, I am returned to the RevGals' first book project together. We ask that you continue to bless our growth in ministry and fellowship, corporately and individually.

  5. I just wanted to stop and say thanks for the Sunday prayer(s). I always find them so valuable before I head off to church (though today I'm at the end of a week off, so had a lie in!). So, many thanks.
