Prayers for the Week of January 10, 2021




Please feel free to join us this week in the prayers offered in worship this Sunday, January 10, 2021:


Loving Christ,

in the waters of baptism,

you have entered with us

into the whole of life,

even unto death,

pointing us to

even more life

beyond what we ever

thought possible.

You have claimed us

and named us “Beloved.”

We give you thanks and praise.


We gather today in

a trembling, troubled world.


In that shaken world,

we gather in your love,

and your justice,

steady and sure.


We pray for this nation

that we might repent

and find our way

to ways of

truth,

and justice,

and healing.


We pray for all those harmed

by the evils of systemic racism.

May we have the courage and clarity

to do the work to dismantle those systems,

and build with you a world

where all can live free.


We pray for all those suffering in pandemic,

for healing,

for strength,

for comfort,

for discipline to participate with you

in bringing an end to this suffering and death.


We pray for

shelter for those who are unhoused,

food for those who are hungry,

companionship for those who are lonely,

comfort for those who mourn.


Thank you for claiming us

and the whole world

as your own beloved.

Thank you for the gift

of life to live in community.


With one voice, we join our voices

with all who have ever called on you,

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.
