Please feel free to join us in the prayers prayed in worship, Sunday, October 9, 2022:
God of loving care and tender mercy,
you have created all that is in love;
you knit us together, each and all;
you accompany us in our going out,
and in our coming home.
You’ve created us for life
lived in community with each other
and all creation.
We see and feel and hear and sense your glory,
in the fullness of your creation,
and in the tender companionship
of kindred spirits.
We give you thanks and praise.
You are present in and with the ache of the world,
and so we bring the concerns you’ve laid on our hearts.
We pray for a world filled with war and violence,
particularly for the people of Ukraine,
for your peace and your justice.
We pray for your good creation
that we have damaged to the verge of collapse.
Transform our hurting ways to healing ways.
