Sunday Prayer

As always, this prayer is cross-posted over on the InnerDorothy site.

Loving and Gracious God, we thank you for this day and for your presence and power in our midst. One by one, you called to each of us this morning, nudging us toward this gathering for worship and praise. Thank you for this faith community and all that we are together as we seek to be faithful to Jesus’ call upon our lives.

As we enter the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we pray for all of our sisters and brothers in faith, here in our local community and around the globe. May the Spirit guide us toward greater understanding of one another and unity within the body of Christ in the world.

God, bless each of us as we try to live faithfully. Help us to see and embrace the spiritual gifts in ourselves and in one another, and give us the courage we need to incorporate all of these gifts into our life as a faith family.

Compassionate God, you know our needs and our concerns. We pray, bless those we have named aloud in this place today and those who remain in the silent sanctuary of our hearts. Bless each of these, your children, with the knowledge and sense of your presence...with the support and care of others...and with the strength to face whatever this day and the coming days may bring.

We thank you mostly, God, for the gift of Jesus. May we be unified in the love that he brought to us and may we be strengthened in the ministry he continues to invite us to embody in our world.

We pray, as always, in his name...singing together... Amen.
