Prayers for the Week of November 29, 2020

Please feel free to join us in prayer this week with the prayers we prayed in worship, Sunday, November 29, 2020:

Loving God,

you have created us in time,

for the living of these days.

You are present with your creation,

in every moment,

across the generations,

through the flow of the seasons,

from the promise of springtime,

through the budding and bloom of summer,

and the harvest of fall,

on into the replenishing stillness of winter.

You are present with us in time,

bringing all things to completion,

a new creation,

a new day dawning,

embracing the whole world in you.

We give you thanks and praise.

We come to you this morning,

in the midst of a weary world –

a world weary from pandemic,

weary from the ways we have abused the Earth,

weary from violence,

weary from racism,

weary from the disregard of our shared humanity,

weary from the living of hard days

in a weary time.

We come to you, watching and waiting,

praying for your help, in Jesus Christ.

We pray

for healing for every hurt,

for those who are ill;

for collective wisdom to heal this pandemic;

for strength for nurses and doctors

and those in the healing professions;

for the dismantling of structural racism,

and the building of a world that is just and true;

for compassion;

for those who are lonely;

for shelter for those who are unhoused;

for food for the hungry.

We pray that we might see the ways

that you are showing up in the world,

that we might have the attentiveness to see

the work that is ours to do

to help you

bring about the dawn of a new day.

Lifting our weary voices,

in strength and in hope,

with the voices of everyone

who has ever called on your name,

we pray the prayer that Jesus taught, saying:

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.
