We Can Pray - Weekly Community Prayer


 

Holy and Gracious God, we come to you grateful for the countless blessings you
bring into our lives. We marvel at the beauty of the earth as it bursts forth in
color. Trees are budding and blossoming and birds are chirping as they build
nests. We see and hear you in all of this Spring renewal and give you thanks. We
are grateful for family and friends and though we are limited in the ways we
interact, we are blessed by their presence. We are thankful for the vaccine that is
available as we look forward to a time when some restrictions can be lifted. We
long to worship together and know that soon we will gather in our sanctuary and
chapel to sing praises and offer prayers to you gracious God. Be with those who
are struggling with unemployment, illness and homelessness. Be with those who
are housed at our southern border. Dear Lord please resolve these over-crowded
conditions. May their needs be met. Lord show us what you would have each of
us do to make a difference in the lives of the needy in Christ’s Name. Amen
