Sunday Prayer

Gracious and Loving God, in thankfulness and praise we gather our prayers with all the prayers of the faithful on this day. We give thanks for the gift of creation, for our life and for our faith and in praise we thank you for the spiritual journey we share with one another.

God, guide us on our way, and help us to remember Jesus’ prayer that “all may be one” and lead us forward so that the way we live our lives can help to make unity in the faith a reality. Grant that we might step out in faith with tolerance, patience and a willingness to see the face of Christ in each person that we meet.

God of Compassion, be with all who are hurting today. Make your comforting presence known to all in need of your power and grace. Enfold the grieving in your love, give strength to those who are ill or recovering from surgery, and give faith to those who wander in the wilderness of their searching, yearning, spirits.

Grant us your peace, O God, and send us out to live in the unity of the Holy Spirit, which proclaims with one voice the Love revealed in Jesus, who taught us to pray together saying…

  1. Well, I didn't want to mess up the nice round number of 220 comments on the preacher party, so I just had to comment here. Woohoo! - some party. I can't believe what all I missed. That's what I get for finishing my sermon early and heading off to do other things.

    Happy preaching, all!

  2. I just caught up this morning on the Preacher Party. I spent yesterday with a family whose loved one was dying. It was sad, but she had a good death. Very peaceful.

  3. Thank you all for your prayers, your hugs and encouragement and support last night at the Preacher Party as this preacher panicked.

    I felt I needed to be there for my friend, as he has few people in his corner on this issue, and he was hurting badly (not that I think he was treating it correctly--alcohol for two days straight is not a good idea). At the same time, I had an obligation not only to my flock, but to Landlord Congregation as well.

    This group supported me and gave me permission to do what I had never done before (thank you Chelley, you can dun me for whatever you want whenever you want) and needed to do.

    My friend is not talking about things yet, but is at least talking to me...monosyllabic and about trivial topics, but I'll take it at this point.

    Blessings to you all...
