Sunday Prayer

Gracious and Loving God, we thank you today for so many blessings...

...for one another... for families that provide care and nurture.. for friends who know us well and like us anyway.. for good neighbours...and for the people who are there when we need a helping hand.

...we thank you for our four-legged friends and we pray for domestic pets without homes and those who live in abusive or neglectful homes.

...for your creation and all its wonder. God, help us to be better stewards of its beauty and richness.

...we thank you for the church, and for this time we share together as your people. On this Reign of Christ Sunday, we pray that the realm that Jesus dreamt of and taught us about, will come to be. Guide us, God, and help us to create your best hope for our world.

We pray now for those whom we have named here this morning – and all of those we know to be in special need of your grace.

We pray for peace, God. We pray that the kingdoms of this world will stop their warring madness and find the humanity in one another...that they will look into the face of their enemies and see themselves reflected back, recognizing once and for all that we are all your beloved children – and that your greatest hope for us is that we live together peacefully.

May it be so, most Gracious God, and may it begin with each of us. And now, as Jesus taught his friends, we pray together singing…

  1. Sue, thank you for remembering the animals.

  2. Echoing an amen for the animlas and the rest of prayer. beautiful!

  3. Thank you for the beautiful prayer. I would add a generous thank you for good health, especially the well-being of body, mind and spirit that is grace filled from God. I have just returned home from a two week hospital stay due to an infection from a tooth...very intense time. I am indeed grateful for many things.

  4. Mompriest - I'm so glad that you are feeling better!

  5. I, too, thank you for remembering the animals. One of our prayer concerns today was for the loss of my organist's beloved foster-dog.
