Please feel free to join us in the prayers prayed in worship, Sunday, September 25, 2022:
Creating, Lamenting, Loving God,
you created everything that is in love,
and you have accompanied your creation
across the generations,
through the whole of life.
You heard the cry of your people in slavery,
and you brought them out, and set them free.
You heard the lament of your people taken into exile,
you sought them out, and you showed them the way home.
You enter, with us, into the deep ditches of life,
you sit there with us,
and you walk us up and out
into wholeness and life.
For your constant creating and re-creating presence,
we give you thanks and praise.
We hear the lament of your world,
we pray for your help.
We hear the cry of an earth
that we have damaged to the point of collapse.
Stop our destructive ways,
teach us and lead us into
ways of living that repair and restore
your good creation.
