Prayers for the Week of April 10, 2022



Please feel free to join us in the prayers prayed in worship this Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022:


Give thanks to God, for God is good;

God’s steadfast love endures forever!


Holy, loving, saving God,

you have created all that is.

You love your creation,

and you accompany us,

in all our strife and struggle,

always at work to save us from everything that does us harm.

With loud Hosannas,

we give you thanks and praise.


Give thanks to God, for God is good;

God’s steadfast love endures forever!


As we move into the fullness of Holy Week,

knowing that you are always near,

we bring to you the concerns of our heart.


We pray for an end to violence and war

and for every manifestation of power-over

that harms your good creation.


We pray for peace in Ukraine and around the world.

We are stunned, with the world, as we see the atrocities.

We pray for all those living in the midst of trauma,

for their grieving and loss,

for the upending of their world,

for a clear and courageous path to peace.


We pray for an end to systems that perpetuate violence,

including American systemic racism.

Help us see our participation in those systems,

help us stop.

Help us dismantle and rebuild,

taking our lead from those harmed the most.


We pray for healing for this planet,

for an end to the violence we do to creation,

for the discipline to,

as a matter of public policy and community practice,

embrace ways of ways of living

that might sustain and heal your creation,

even in the midst of climate catastrophe.

We pray for those who grieve, comfort.

For those who are unhoused, shelter,

For those who are hungry, food enough and more.

For those who are ailing in body or spirit, healing.

For those who are lonely, companionship.


Grateful for your saving love,

we praise you,

we cry out to you,

we trust in you.


Give thanks to God, for God is good;

God’s steadfast love endures forever!


With all who have called out to you –

in every time and place

with all creation, including the stones that shout,

we join our voices with their voices,

praying the prayer that Jesus taught:


Our Father/Mother, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
