Prayer of Thanksgiving, Intercession, and Petition

Shared during Sunday Worship on March 17, 2024.

God of peace and Lover of our souls, we lift up our voices to You for Your sustaining grace and power. In Your profound mercy, You have sustained our world, despite the discord and division in some communities and jurisdictionstoday. We join our faiths together and speak calm and healing over these contexts, especially the North Africa and the Middle East, Central Africa, Europe, and South Asia. We decree a silencing of firearms and artillery and declare the freeing of hostages, in Jesus’ name! 

​God of justice, we lift up America before You. For actors from across the political spectrum, we ask for love for God and neighbor; for the media, we ask for bold and balanced reportage, and for law enforcement and the judicial authorities, we ask for fairness and right judgment. We also pray for this nation’s workforce, asking for efficiency and appropriate work-life balance. God, remember the poor, the widowed, the orphaned, the migrant, and the homeless and show us how to distribute our resources, so that nobody goes without.

​God of love, we bear our families and relationships up in prayer this morning. Where there is strife, bring sweetness; where there is lack, provide, where there is disease, heal, and where there is distress, give us rest. Infuse our very hearts with Your love, God, so that peace on earth may begin with us – from our homes to our communities to the ends of the earth. In Jesus’ name. Amen!
