Prayers for the Week of August 29, 2021

Please feel free to join us in the prayers we prayed in worship Sunday, August 29, 2021:

Loving God,

giver of wisdom and life,

you created us, and all that is in love.

You have created us to love

and to live life in families and communities,

in relationships of justice, healing, and peace,

to live lives of shalom,

so that all your children

might have enough,

and survive,

and thrive.

We stand in the stream of generations, and

we thank you and we give you praise.

And this morning,

we pray for families and communities.

We pray for families who are grieving

the death of loved ones in Afghanistan,

and especially the American and Afghani

lives lost in this week’s terrorist attack

at the Kabul airport.

We pray for the families of American service personnel,

we give thanks for their courage and sacrificial service,

as they died helping others find refuge and shelter.<
